A thousand lives

You only live once they say
But you know that isn’t true.
Second chances come our way
We get to love another day
Sometimes we get a clue.

We learn to give more than we take
And fix the things we break.
We learn to forgive instead of hate
And give more than our due.

You only live once they say
But that’s just so not true.
‘Cause I’m gonna live a thousand lives
And every one with you.
