Lyrics: 

James
We were always friends from our childhood days
And we made our plans
And we had to go our sep'rate ways
I went on the road
You pursued an education

James
Do you like your life
Can you find release
And will you ever change
Will you ever write your masterpiece?

Are you still in school
Living up to expectations?
James
You were so relied upon
Ev'rybody knows how hard you tried

Hey
Oh, look at what a job you've done
Carrying the weight of fam'ly pride

James
You've been well behaved, you've been working hard
But will you always stay
Someone else's dream of who you are?
Do what's good for you
Or you're not good for anybody
James

I went on the road
You pursued an education
James
How you gonna know for sure
Ev'rything was so well organized

Hey,
Oh, now ev'rything is so secure
And ev'rybody else is satisfied
James
Do you like your life
Can you find release
And will you ever change
When will you write your masterpiece?
Do what's good for you
Or you're not good for anybody
James
