Lyrics

Life is all about the the choices you make
Poor old Penny found out the hard way
She spent all her time trying to get by
Her big city life didn't work out right
Dependent on welfare because no one else was there
And no one cared when she was young and unaware
The choices that she made dug her deeper
Distracted by negativity forever
Held in a hole by dependents and debt
With no way out she decides there's nothing left

When to run or when to hide?
When to shoot or when to fight?
When it's time to decide
And you can't make up your mind
Embrace your choice
For the day will come when you won;t have one

Life is all about the choices you you make
Dave was determined to direct his life
Early on he was just another guy
Trying to get by with a dream in mind
Dave decided to prepare a plan
He was patient precise and in control of his life
The choices that Dave made created success
Money, wealth, love and happiness

Choice is yours

When to run or when to hide?
When to shoot or when to fight?
When it's time to decide
And you can't make up your mind
Embrace your choice
For the day will come when you won;t have one
