After a dismal little post yesterday, I think y’all deserve something special. And what could be more special than one of my top three favorite songs of all time. Throughout my teenhood, this song was my world. It encapsulated growing up and all that it could be. I have an intense fear of death and this song for me is holding onto life. It’s having ambition. It’s having loved ones. It’s living and breathing and existing. Life may never ever give you everything you want no matter how much you try, but you have to try. Nothing lasts forever. So here you are standing in this vast world. What do you do with the time, this gift. What do you do? You try to rule the world. Everybody wants to…

Song 380- “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears

Welcome to your life
Theres no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you
Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

Its my own design
Its my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Theres a room where the light wont find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do Ill be right behind you

So glad weve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I cant stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it ?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world
