The Game Of Life

The sun is setting
And you still aren't content,
With how your life was spent
But your time here is up
Too bad you can't backup

The sun is setting
You didn't follow your dreams
Is it not what is seems?
You did as you were told
Your soul was what you sold.

The sun is setting
And you have to except
The atrocious concept
That your life is ending
No use in pretending

The sun is setting
You have to deal with it
Why don't you just admit
That you made a mistake
Was it worth the heartache?

The sun is setting
It's time to say goodbye
And look death in the eye.
It's fine to be afraid
Thank you for having played
