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...
