​Life Is What You Make It

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Rock And Roll I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life (1974).

Here today and gone tomorrow,
Life is short most people say,
There's no way we can borrow,
Any time from yesterday,
There are joys and there are sorrows and there's one thing to understand,
We've got today and we've got tomorrow,
And we can make the best of them while we can.

Life is what you make of it,
What you take from it,
What you do with it.
You're gonna find something great in it before you're through with it, you know,
So don't sit around just to wait for it,
And think it'll happen some how, no,
You've got the life, go out and use it,
You're the only one,
You've got to choose it,
You've got the right,
So don't you refuse it now.

You've got the chance that you're gonna make it,
And it's the only one so you've got to take it,
Life can be what you want to make it now.

Where's the rhyme and what's the reason,
Which way are we meant to go,
Why the stars and why the seasons,
No one really seems to know,
Life it seems has many reasons and we may never understand,
But we've got today and we've got tomorrow,
And we can make the most of them while we can.

Life is what you make of it,
What you take from it,
What you do with it
You're gonna find something great in it before you're through with it, you know,
So don't sit around just to wait for it,
Think it'll happen some how, no,
You've got the life,
Go out and use it,
You're the only one,
You've got to choose it,
You've got the right,
So don't you refuse it now

You've got the chance that you're gonna make it,
And it's the only one so you've got to take it,
Life can be what you want to make it now.

You've got the life,
Go on and live it,
Give it everything you've got to give it,
Life can be the way you want to live it now
