  • Wake up to the sunlight
    With your windows open
    Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
    Wear your red dress
    Use your good dishes
    Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
    Have what you want
    But want what you have
    And don't spend your life lookin' back

    [Chorus]
    Turn up the music
    Turn it up loud
    Take a few chances
    Let it all out
    You won't regret it
    Lookin' back from where you have been
    Cause it's not who you knew
    And it's not what you did
    It's how you live

    So go to the ballgames
    And go to the ballet
    And go see your folks more than just on the holidays
    Kiss all your children
    Dance with your wife
    Tell your husband you love him every night
    Don't run from the truth
    Cause you can't get away
    Just face it and you'll be okay

    [Chorus]

    Oh wherever you are and wherever you've been
    Now is the time to begin

    So give to the needy
    And pray for the grieving
    E'en when you don't think that you can
    Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
    So think of your fellow man
    Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
    Cause in the end there's nobody else

    [Chorus]

    Cause it's not who you knew
    And it's not what you did
    It's how you live Writer/s: CINDY LAVONNE MORGAN, CINDY MORGAN
