You Can't Wait
You can't save time in a bottle,
No matter what that song may say.
It's time to start living Carpe Diem.
It's time for you to sieze the day.
You can't just watch the boats sail by,
While you but wait upon the shore.
When opportunity begins to knock,
It's time to open up that door.
You can't wait to turn the pages,
This new story won't write itself.
Your life is like a brand new book to read,
It's time to take it off the shelf.
You can't wait another season,
As you watch the leaves change and fall.
Out there is a new world that is waiting,
It's time for you to make the call.
