Your life aren't mine


Your life aren't mine
I'm going to tell you something
In life
Your feet aren't mine
Your way aren't mine
Your choice aren't mine

Open your mind
Don't rely on me
Don't wait for me

I'm telling you
Watch your life
Your life aren't mine
Know your life
About what you are going to do

Well they said the life can be beautiful
Don't you agree that's really true
But never mind
If you don't open your mind
Then just wait till you understand

Because you are a man of your words
Whether you know it or not
Your thinking aren't mine
Your expression aren't mine
I have no such a power to rule your life
Your power aren't mine

So I'm telling you
So listen
Your future plan aren't mine
Your strategics aren't mine
You aren't me

Stop act to be me

But they said it is safe for you to be someone else
When you truly not love yourself
Don't you agree that's really true
But never mind
If you don't open your mind
Then just wait till you understand

Because you are a man of your life
Whether you know it or not
You can tell me how you live
But I ain't take your way
Because I have mine
You can change me when you change yourself
This would be ever better

If you don't like me
Then won't you change yourself
Your personal aren't mine

But they said it is powerful
When you truly love yourself
Don't you agree that's really true
But never mind
If you don't open your mind
Just wait till you understand

Your perceptive aren't mine
You know I'm different
I'm a man of my words
I'm a man of my life
Whether I know it or not

You know you aren't me
Don't rely on me
Don't wait for me
Your life aren't mine

When you truly connect to your life
The whole world will show you
That you are you
