Don’t let no small frustration Ever bring you down No no no no Just take a situation And turn it all around With a new attitude everything can change Make it how you want it to be Stayin’ mad, why do that? Give yourself a break Laugh about it and you’ll see Life’s what you make it So let’s make it rock Life’s what you make it So come on come on (everybody now) Why be sad, broken hearted? There’s so much to do Yeah yeah yeah yeah Life is hard or It’s a party The choice is up to you With a new attitude everything can change Make it how you want it to be Stayin’ sad, why do that? Give yourself a break I know you wanna party with me

Life’s what you make it So let’s make it rock Life’s what you make it So come on come on Lets celebrate it Join in everyone You decide ‘Cause life’s… what you make it Things are looking up Any time you want All you gotta do is realize that It’s under your control So let the good times rock and roll Ow! Da da da do it now Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah OW! Alright Yeah yeah yeah Yeah yeah Life’s what you make it So let’s make it rock (let’s make it rock) Life’s what you make it So come on come on (everybody now) Let’s celebrate it Join in everyone You decide ‘Cause life’s… what you make it Life is what you make it

This song and the poem relate in many ways. The song is telling the listener not to stress the small stuff and live the life while you have the chance. The song tells us that with a new attitude you can have a better perspective on life. Life is what you make and this is what Lucinda believed. She believed that we should live life to the fullest and enjoy every second of it. You control your life so do what you can to appreciate it. Lucinda talked about losing hope and how being unhappy is a waste of your time. This song proves to us that if you forget about the sad things in life your troubles will go away and you will enjoy life.

Sometimes we fall down, can’t get back up We’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough How come we don’t say I love you enough Till it’s to late, it’s not too late Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come And we could make a feast from these crumbs And we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun So if your life flashed before you, What would you wish you would’ve done Yeah, we gotta start Looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given If this is all we got and we gotta start thinking If every second counts on a clock that’s ticking Gotta live like we’re dying We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to.

Turn it all around or to throw it all away We gotta tell them that we love them While we got the chance to say Gotta live like we’re dying And if your plane fell out of the skies Who would you call with your last goodbye Should be so careful who we live out our lives So when we long for absolution, There’ll no one on the line, yeah Yeah, we gotta start Looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given If this is all we got and we gotta start thinking If every second counts on a clock that’s ticking Gotta live like we’re dying We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to Turn it all around or to throw it all away We gotta tell them that we love them.

While we got the chance to say Gotta live like we’re dying Like we’re dying, oh, like we’re dying.. We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to Turn it all around or to throw it all away We gotta tell them that we love them While we got the chance to say Gotta live like we’re dying You never know a good thing till it’s gone You never see a crash till it’s head on Why do we think we’re right when we’re dead wrong You never know a good thing till it’s gone Yeah, we gotta start Looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given If this is all we got and we gotta start thinking If every second counts on a clock that’s ticking.

Gotta live like we’re dying We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to Turn it all around or to throw it all away We gotta tell them that we love them While we got the chance to say Gotta live like we’re dying Like we’re dying, oh, like we’re dying.. We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to Turn it all around or to throw it all away We gotta tell them that we love them While we got the chance to say Gotta live like we’re dying.. This song is similar to Lucindas life because she never let life slip, by she lived everyday like her last. Each day we should cherish the times we have with people and tell them that we love them.

This song tells us that there are only 86,400 seconds in a day to live the life you should. Each second counts and they way you live it is up to you. Lucinda kept that in mind throughout her life because she did all that she wanted to. When she died she was ok because she knew she lived her life to the fullest. She did all she wanted because she had the chance, she didn’t want it to slip her by. Lucinda loved her life and did what she wanted without regrets. In the end she realized “It takes life to love Life,” meaning Lucinda would want people to live each day as if you were dying.
