lyrics

Hey my good friend, where have you been?
It's been a long time since you've had a win
But life's too short to be living in the past
Come on lets have a drink and make it last

I know you've had hard times
Cause I've had them too
We've been beaten up, broken down, black and blue
We've seen fortunes come and then fade away
So bottoms up to better days

But don't live today like it's already gone
Forget about the past and just keep on keeping on
Put away all your sorrows and come out and play
Don't waste the light of tomorrow on today

I know it's hard when your living on your own
No one to hold you close when you're alone
No one to pick you up when you feel down
But there's still time to turn things around

This world is big and there's so much to see
Roads yet traveled and people to meet
Well good times come and the good times will go
But my friend this life is better than you know

But don't live today like it's already gone
Forget about the past and just keep on keeping on
Put away all your sorrows and come out and play
Don't waste the light of tomorrow on today
