Congratulations Graduate! Rock on with your Bad Self ♫

These lyrics by Brendan James speak volumes about throwing caution to the wind and taking that leap.  If I could sing a commencement address, this is what I would sing to you.  Find your passion.  Do the brave thing.  Take the road less traveled.   Good luck, young'uns.   Go get 'em.

Leave your worries, leave your fears,
Leave the doubt you're holding dear,
Leave them there, love, by the door,
They're no good anymore.

Tell your friends you'll see them later,
Tell your family they can wait,
Oh, only young once, only dream of,
the day that love will steal you away.

So run with me down these midnight streets,
We will take nothing for granted,
Nothing for granted.

Come with me, life is short and sweet,
We will take nothing for granted.
Nothing for granted.

Stop the seasons drifting by,
Stop believing there's no time,
Stop your heart from closing off,
I think you deserve it all.

Love your future, love your past,
Love your body, it's all you have,
Love your secrets bottled up,
But love them more when you give them up.

And run with me down these midnight streets,
We will take nothing for granted,
Nothing for granted.

Come with me life is short and sweet,
We will take nothing for granted,
Nothing for granted.

Gotta get out of your mind,
There's so many wonders to find,
So many words they could write across your early grave,
So come on and open your eyes,
I will be right by your side,
We will see love lies in everything.

Run with me down these midnight streets,
We will take nothing for granted,
Nothing for granted,
Nothing for granted ,
Nothing for granted.

Come with me life is short and sweet,
Oh, nothing for granted,
Nothing for granted.
