Story Of Your Life

(I. Hanson / Z. Malloy / J. Mraz)
Written at Fools Banquet 2008, recorded by To Have Heroes


Every story has a writer
Whose life has been inspired
by love or a desire
to get inside the mind
of the reader or at least
get to that next page

Every movie has a part
where they get to the heart
of the matter
foreshadowing what might be happening
whether or not
there's a trapdoor
in the floor of the stage

So I'm trying to read cuz I'm duing to see
Who I will be in the story of your life
Where will I be if you close the book tonight?
Am I the hero or the villain?
Is it a history or fiction?
Will I still be here in the end?
In the story of your life
in the story of your life

In the novel I'm writing
I decided I'm using the actuaal identities
instead misleading the people I love
cuz they're the ones who need it the most

Every chapter is another beginning
a beginning to guess if my character's in over his head
cuz of something he said
or maybe something he wrote

So I'm trying to read cuz I'm dying to see
Who I will be in the story of your life
Where will I be if you close the book tonight?
Am I the hero or the villain?
Is it a history or fiction?
Will I still be here in the end?
In the story of your life

Tell me, Juliet
Can we make it through this act without a tragedy?
Oh,let's get through this scene cuz I'm dying to see
If I will be in the story of your life
Where will I be if you close the book tonight?

Who will I be in the story of your life?
Where will I be if you hold the book tonight?
Who will I be, in the story of your life
In the story of your life
