Lyrics and Music by James Martin


I think about my reason In Life, in Time, In You.
Why I meet certain people, I don’t have a clue.
All is for a purpose I will someday find.
As of right now, these questions boggle my mind.
I’m so lucky to have the friends I do.
Life is such a good thing, It’s meant for me and you.
Whenever you are troubled, you will find
all your worries will be gone in time.
I try to find the good in every single day,
But at times there are things that blow me away.
Puts me in a spell to where I feel like shit.
Always working for the better, I never will quit.
Bad things happen, but there’s a reason why,
Always getting stronger, ‘til the day I die.
Life is what I make it, has always been.
Karma has proven right, time and time again.
There are two sides to everything I see.
A positive and negative, there must always be.
The way I want to view is up to me, I know.
Whichever looks best, I will choose to go.
If I choose wrong, it will soon attack,
Get me in a fix, just to pay me back.
If I choose right, and back it up with hope,
Something good will come to me,
just when I need it most.
There’s one thing I’ll never know right,
The price a person has to pay for taking someone’s life.
When it comes to daily things, karma does prevail,
But when it comes to killing, my answers always fail.
Killing’s hardly good. We know it’s mostly bad.
No matter what the case, death is always sad.
Positive and negative exist in every night
Who lives that really knows about the after life?
I know about my reason I Live in Time, with You.
Why I meet certain people, I now have a clue.
All is for a purpose. I will someday find.
Until then I’ll use the positive portion of my mind.
