PostSubject: "My Way" - Frank Sinatra   Mon Nov 29, 2010 7:45 pm

This has to be my favourite song. The lyrics are so inspirational that if i feel that i have lived my life at least somewhat like this i can die happily.

And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend I'll say it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes there were times I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all
And I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Yes it was my way


Tell me what you think, the message in the song is so well put (it's also sung beautifully).

WoW! I havent heard this song in such a long time.

"I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing"

I really like that line. Of how people say that when we grow up we will look back at our younger years, the good memories and even the bad, and just laugh. It's like when you get into a humiliating situation and you're not able to laugh at it until much later.
I sure hope when I'm older I'll be able to do that. Be able to actually laugh at the bad times. (:
