Someday , I hope , you’ll understand
that life’s not about a perfect plan
It’s ok to risk and fail and fall
and not take the beaten path at all
Someday, I hope , you’ll hear those voices
that will seek to guide and have much to say
but in the end I hope your own voice triumphs
and you’ll proudly announce – I did it my way.
Let the names they call you not bog you down
outlandish amidst the orderly around
Live and love with abandon , make mistakes day after day
there’s no escaping pain and regrets
but it’s better when you can say – I did it my way.
