“Before it Begins”

This is life, he says as he grins
All of the answers, but you don’t know the right questions
And you’re working for the means, but you don’t know the ends
This is life, before it begins

Is this a dream that I just won’t recall
What am I thinking, am I thinking at all
And the future’s open wide, but it feels so small
Is this a dream that I just won’t recall

Is this life, is this life
This is life, this is life
This is life, this is life
Before it begins, I need to know
How does this end, which way do I go
If this is real, how do I show it to you so it’s true
So it’s true

This is life, before it begins
All of the answers, but you don’t know the right questions
