What You Got Instead 06/29/2016 "Take a minute just to breathe and think of everything you wanted and what you got instead." Lyrics From: “Straight Ahead” by: David Cook Rarely do our lives turn out as expected. When I was four years old, I wanted to be a dolphin – not surprisingly, things didn’t work out. When I was 10 years old, I decided that I would be a missionary. While much more plausible than a dolphin, this didn’t work out either. When I got married at 18 years old, I thought it would last forever. It didn’t.
