One Life

one life
This afternoon, I saw a video for the song, “One Life,” by Boyce Avenue and Friends.  There are a few reasons that I am sharing it here on my kindness blog.  (I have posted the link to watch the video at the end.)
  •  One of the girls that sings in it is Bea Miller, the extremely talented daughter of my good friend Kim.
  • All of the proceeds that are made from this song are going towards, Pencils of Promise, a group of individuals who are committed to supporting a world with greater educational opportunity for all.   http://www.pencilsofpromise.org/who-we-are/our-story .
  • The lyrics.  We only get one life to live so open your eyes, make good choices and don’t let it pass you by!
One Life
You lie awake while the world’s asleep
You made mistakes and you’re in too deep
But now’s the time
Alarm goes off but you feel too weak
Your soul’s too heavy for your feet
But now’s the time
Open your eyes
And know you’re free to come alive
You gotta live it while you can
We only get one life
Look to the sky
Don’t let it ever pass you by
You’ve gotta live it while you can
We only get one life
You’ve lost your faith in a life that’s cursed
You’ve cried so hard inside it hurts
But now’s the time
Outside the sun is coming up
Inside you think you’ve given up
But now’s the time
Open your eyes
And know you’re free to come alive
You gotta live it while you can
We only get one life
Look to the sky
Don’t let it ever pass you by
You’ve gotta live it while you can
We only get one lifeOne life
It’s time to stand up and fight
It’s time for making it right
We only get one life
One life
One life
And when it feels like a lie
I’ll be your reason to shine
We only get one life
Open your eyes and know you’re free to come alive
You gotta live it while you can
We only get one life
Look to the sky
Don’t ever let it pass you by
You’ve gotta live it while you can
We only get one lifeOne life
It’s time to stand up and fight
It’s time for making it right
We only get one life
One life
One life
And when it feels like a lie
I’ll be your reason shine
We only get one life
One life
