I stopped and asked myself-
"What do you want out of life?"
What expectations?
A home, family, or a wife?

What kind of income-
Do you really feel money counts?
Buying Utopia-
Exorbitantly large, the amounts.

What is the ideal life-
The thing that you'd like to have most?
A home in the desert?
The mountains, or on the West Coast?

Who is the perfect match-
The girl that you'd have for your own?
Maybe she don't exist-
And you'd fare much better alone.

After I'd thought awhile-
Thought of the pain in the past...
I guess I'm better off-
Making the life I have last.

I like this much Mr. Gun---I was thinking on this very thing today and wondering how much of my life I would wish away to make certain wishes come true. There was only one answer--NONE of it. Thanks for the confirmation here!

Tonight I received an email saying if I would forward the email to five people in five minutes I would receive my wish.
I didn't send it to anyone, I will live the life I have right now.
You brought up a good question and I like your answer.
