    The past is just a memory
    The future isn't set
    Throw caution to the wind
    And live without regret
    Leave behind your past
    And feel the burden lift
    All that matters is right now
    The present is a gift

lyrics

Wise old man once said to me
Make the most of this life
They'll be times of struggle and moments of strife
But you gotta stand strong besides
A man like me, you wanna do your best
Be true to yourself, never mind the rest
Live humbly and treat others with grace
And seize the day with a smile on your face

Don't waste time, on shadows cast
Forgive yourself and forget the past
These days are ticking by so fast
Life is short, gotta make it last
The finest of all life’s flavours
Are the ones that are free to savour
Turn a blind eye to the world of greed
And only take what you really need

I'm gonna break free from this illusion
I'm gonna live every day like my last
I'm gonna dream like I'll live on forever
And I know, I know, I know you feel the same

The past is just a memory
The future isn't set
Throw caution to the wind
And live without regret
Leave behind your past
And feel the burden lift
All that matters is right now
The present is a gift

Trust your instinct, never be afraid
To swim against the mainstream currents
The judgement of others will pass with the wind
Don't ever listen if they claim you've sinned
Those that mind, don't matter
Those that matter, don't mind
Those that mind, don't matter
Those that matter, don't mind

I'm gonna break free from this illusion
I'm gonna live every day like my last
I'm gonna dream like I'll live on forever
And I know, I know, I know you feel the same

The past is just a memory
The future isn't set
Throw caution to the wind
And live without regret
Leave behind your past
And feel the burden lift
All that matters is right now
The present is a gift

True freedom, isn't the modern way
Our busy lives keep the moment at bay
We've all been sold a dream since birth
Wake up now to see your life’s true worth
Roll away from control
Unlock the secrets deep in your soul
Free from a world where illusion is rife
The shock of death shakes you back to life

Don't believe in fate, cos the future isn't set
From a life well lived, you'll have no regret
Forget those illusions of heaven in the sky
Find your happiness here before you die
Death is a friend walking by your side
Your eternal companion on this crazy ride
Embrace your own mortality
And step into reality

With the sun on my face
The shadows always fall behind
With death at my side
I am free
With the sun on my face
The shadows always fall behind
With death at my side
I am free

The past is just a memory
The future isn't set
Throw caution to the wind
And live without regret
Leave behind your past
And feel the burden lift
All that matters is right now
The present is a gift

Live your life, oh live your life
Oh live your life today
Leave your life, yeah leave your life
Yeah leave your life behind

We are free
