Lyrics

Choices and Crowded Streets

Written By: Matt Donald

Hush, hush.
Don't talk.
Don't say a word,
Or they'll hear us.
I've never been so sure of being confused.
They play, we lose.
And we grow tired.
We don't grow up.
And what begins as push,
Turns to shove.

1984, you were knocking at my door.
Before I was born,
I never leave you alone.
Just this once,
Leave the redundancy to me.
It's my own set of views,
My own set of views now.

Chorus

Choose your life,
It's better than fiction,
You know it's alright.
Choose tonight,
It's better than being discouraged.

Choose your life,
It's better than fiction,
You know it's alright.
Choose your life.

I'd rather be alone,
Than a lonely man's detective.
I'll throw away my cellphone,
And choose this process selective.

And just the other day,
I heard the world say,
The sky is feeling blue,
And it's falling on you.
To escape from this mess,
I'm expecting you to dress for rain.

Chorus

Choose your life,
It's better than fiction,
You know it's alright.
Choose tonight,
It's better than being discouraged.

Choose your life,
It's better than fiction,
You know it's alright.
Choose your life.

Choose.
Do it.
