do what you love

zero dollars made today
yet so much more satisfying was today than yesterday
contemplating a day off tomorrow
or maybe a day on
when you're doing what you love
does it really matter
do what you love and the money will come
do what you love
you'll always have more than enough
of the stuff that gets you through
no matter what you do
do what you love

waiting

waiting for something to happen
waiting for someone to come
testing my patience
every step of the way
have I made a mistake
or am I just sick and tired of
waiting for you to be ready
to make the commitment to be here
testing my patience
every step of the way
have I made a mistake
or am I just too aware
time's a precious commodity
doesn't seem to register for you
don't think I can wait
one second longer
when I feel like I've waited a lifetime
that's just too long
in a world where time waits for no one
won't be hanging around any longer
waiting on you..............

of course just when you're ready to bail is when that person walks through the door...........

try

worrying about it don't make it come
quite the opposite really
when you're in need of some
cold hard cash
to get the people off your back
who sometimes make our lives
a living hell
got to remember not to dwell
on all the stuff that counteracts the good
we should all try
we know we should
try to be a little better than the day before
try to give a little more
than what we're called upon for
and we just can't do that
with our minds on something else
worrying about the things
that can't be changed
this very second
so what I'll do right now is
try to be a little better than the day before
try to give a little more
than what I'm called upon for
in doing that I'll get a little more back
than I would've done
without the little extra effort
and with this little extra effort
put into every single day
this time next year
got a feeling I'll be able to say
the unimaginable, the things I long for
in the here and now
this time next year
they'll be so very near
