Or perhaps also pay the price for mistakes you made in the past.
It reminds me of this one :
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS (QUEEN)
IÂ´ve paid my dues, time after time,
IÂ´ve done my sentence but committed no crime.
And bad mistakes, IÂ´ve made a few,
IÂ´ve had my share of sand kicked in my face,
but IÂ´ve come through. And I need to go on and on...
...We are the champions, my friend,
and weÂ´ll keep on fighting till the end...
...No time for losers, Â´cause...of the world.
IÂ´ve taken my bows and my curtain calls,
youÂ´ve bought me fame and fortune
and everything that goes with it, I thank you all.
But itÂ´s been no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise,
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
and I ainÂ´t gonna lose...
