13. The Future

Im like a flower commin up through a crack in the sidewalk
The circumstances were hopeless but there's always potential for progress
Sometimes you gotta fight even if you can't beat it
There's a chance to rise are you gonna stay seated
Are you gonna feel cheated by the world for the rest of your life
Forget smelling the roses, the least you can do is acknowledge them
Put aside the problems on your agenda in the A.M and the P.M

Today I took my headphones off and I listened to the sound on the street
I listened to the music in the sky, listened to the birds flyin by eh eh, i i
Listened to the music in a strangers eyes, listened to my own heart beat
Today I took my headphones off and I listened to the sound on the street
Amazing things are happening to me, amazing things are happening

The future aint what it used to be, the past aint never gonna be the same
The world is changed changed changed, the future aint what it used to be

There was a breath of fresh air that came through the window
That opened up when the door closed, now I go where the wind blows
Sometimes you gotta make a guess when you don't know
Sometimes you gotta step aside and let your own flower grow
Sometimes you gotta let life get you high to help deal with the lows

Today I turned my cell phone off and I talked to a man on the street
Had a conversation with the birds in the trees
and I had a conversation with me with me with me I say
Just checkin up, checkin in, what's up, what's happenin, how you been
it's been a long time, yeah it's been a while, so don't be a stranger
keep away from danger, stay outta harms way and be safe be safe be safe be safe

Cause the future aint what it used to be, the past aint never gonna be the same
The world is changed changed changed, the future aint what it used to be

Today I took my shades off and I let the Sun hit my eyes
Appreciated all the colors in the sky saw the world in a different light eh eh , i i
Took notice of the little things that all add up and equal my life my life my life eh
Today I took my shades off and I let a stranger look into my eyes
I let him see me with out my disguise
He smiled at me and asked for a minute to share his philosophy and he said

! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

The future aint what it used to be, the past aint never gonna be the same
gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be
The future aint what it used to be, the past aint never gonna be the same
gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be
The future aint what it used to be, the past aint never gonna be the same
gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be gonna be
The future aint what it used to be, the past aint never gonna be the same
