Why Not?

She says I want to climb to the top of the mountain,
to see the view.
He says we can see it fine from right here,
what's gotten into you?
She says I want to go to Vegas,
and gamble away half my paycheck.
He says why waste the money?
We could use it to pay half our rent.
She says you gotta start living.
Go dance in the rain,
do something insane.
He says no it's time to grow up,
we can't do those things.
She says,
why not?
Why not?
Life's about being happy,
have you forgot?
Sometimes you just gotta let all your stress go.
Do something that goes against everything you know.
To start living,
you have to stop questioning everything.
When the only thing you need to ask,
is why not?
