It’s Never Too Late

We could shake this world
If you would only show us how
Your life is now
Would you teach your children to tell the truth
Would you take the high road if you could choose
Do you believe you’re a victim of a great compromise
‘Cause I believe you could change your mind and change our lives
(repeat chorus)
Would you teach your children to tell the truth
This is your time here to do what you will do.

– John Mellencamp
