my way lyrics – ahmad dhani

and now, the end is near,
and so i face the final curtain.
my friends, i’ll say it clear;
i’ll state my case of which i’m certain.

i’ve lived a life that’s full –
i’ve travelled each and every highway.
and more, much more than this,
i did it my way.

regrets? i’ve had a few,
but then again, too few to mention.
i did what i had to do
and saw it through without exemption.

i planned each charted course –
each careful step along the byway,
and more, much more than this,
i did it my way.

yes, there were times, i’m sure you knew,
when i bit off more than i could chew,
but through it all, when there was doubt,
i ate it up and spit it out.
i faced it all and i stood tall
and did it my way.

i’ve loved, i’ve laughed and cried,
i’ve had my fill – my share of losing.
but now, as tears subside,
i find it all so amusing.

to think i did all that,
and may i say, not in a shy way –
oh no. oh no, not me.
i did it my way.

for what is a man? what has he got?
if not himself – then he has naught.
to say the things he truly feels
and not the words of one who kneels.
the record shows i took the blows
and did it my way.

yes, it was my way.
