i've walked the wire without a net

and often done what i'd regret

when i get old and look back

on all those wasted years

did i learn my lessons well

at the end, is it heaven or hell

-- or an endless fall

down a bottomless pit

did i exist to please myself

or dance to songs for someone else

-- and smile

at what they said and did

and in the end, as we all know,

we can't take with us, when we go,

what we held close

when we were here.

leave behind the endless chatter -

start looking for what really matters.
