This Life That's Mine To Live
You can bend me, you can shake me
But try as you may you cannot break me
I'll just keep telling myself it will all be okay
Knock me down, hold me back- it's only a delay
Life's too short to let my spirit die
Though sometimes it seems all you've done is try
But I am here and I am strong
Even when the night starts to seem too long
Because in the morning's early haze
The pieces of my shattered heart fall back into place
So here I stand ready to fly from this limb
To still embrace this life that's mine alone to live
