"LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE" [2014]


Sittin’ at a café

In the middle of the Marais

On a perfect, sunny Monday

I’m easin’ my mind

WIth a girl named Jeanne

Aw boy, she hang so fine

Everybody tells me I’m so crazy

For doing what I do

But I think you’re lazy

For just lettin’ life

Go and happen to you

 

Take on the reins

Follow your soul

You write the story, man

You’re in control

Change your own name

Drop out of school

Travel the world

Break all the rules

No one can do it for you

Only you can do you

No one can do it for you

Only you can do you

I swear it’s the truth

You gotta…

Live your own life

 

Sittin’ on a rock

In the middle of Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

I’m easin’ my mind

With a pack of French cigs

And a bottle of cheap white wine

Everybody tells me I’m so crazy

To blaze my own trail

But I think you’re lazy

For not taking chances

Are you afraid you’re gonna fail?

 

Take on the reins

Follow your soul

You write the story, man

You’re in control

Change your own name

Drop out of school

Travel the world

You're nobody's fool

No one can do it for you

Only you can do you

No one can do it for you

Only you can do you

I swear it’s the truth

You gotta…

Live your own life

 

You don’t have to notice

When they come around

The negative souls

Who exist to put you down

Just learn to let go

Of their hateful sounds

Keep your feet firmly planted

In the ground

And it’s gonna be all right
