If I Could

If I could choose the way I die, It would be on my bed
Lying down with some nice girl, of course still in her twenties
If I could choose the way I live, I would do it my way
I’d do exactly what I want, party all night and sleep all day

If I could choose the way to raise just a little money
I’d turn all my passions into my full-time proper job
If I could choose the right time to leave for a vacation
I’d leave every time I want

Our lives don’t last forever
The future will be past
We can’t choose what is better
But we’re stubborn, we’re headstrong and we will never give up trying

If could choose my low fat diet, according to my doctor,
Pizza, Pasta, Sushi, Beer, twice a day smoke cigaweed
If I could change the line of our lives, it would be predictable:
Perfect health until ninety, then a huge party just before
The big rise up to the sky, with no pain and no regrets,
Just a toast to say goodbye

Our lives don’t last forever
The future will be past
We can’t choose what is better
But we’re stubborn, we’re headstrong and we will never give up trying

If I could choose the ones I pray to, rather than the common saints,
They would be our comic heroes that would easily guard the earth
And their churches would be good, and their teaching would be true,
If only people were like Me and You…

Our lives don’t last forever
The future will be past
We can’t choose what is better
But we’re stubborn, we’re headstrong and we will never give up trying
