Nearly four years of sailing through stormy seas
I have to be wiser now
Oh the times that we had together

Looking back I see dreamers, deserters
And promises that weren't kept
And I know that my conscience is clean

Moving onward, hoping to go on
Though anger has fueled me
This anger won't go on long

And I'm not into excuses, complaining just bothers me
And I'm tired of the whining and spinelessness

And I've heard all of your pipe dreams, your big schemes
Just hot air from a fool
But I know that I shouldn't think that way
Should I think that way?

Remember when we, young, sat dreaming by fire's glow
We talked long through summer nights
But talk is cheap as I know
And Autumn comes and Summer dies
And promises begin to lie
And years roll and we become the things we said the things we've done

Seize the love
Seize the meaning
Seize the moment
Seize the memory
Seize the effort
Seize the truth
Seize the day

Turn around and see what's behind you
Are you happy with the world that you've made?
Look away and think of the future, is it OK?

Are you sure you've got all the answers without a doubt?
Are you feeling confident?
Is that smile that you're wearing real?
