Life to Live Lyrics:



I'm getting lazy, my mind's getting hazy,
And time just keeps running away.

Things that I'd like to get harder to get to
Before the end of the day.

But pictures are painted and fiction related,
I'd like to think that I just may
Be the artist behind it or the poet to rhyme it
And share it with someone, some day.

But for now, I
I have my life to live.
Precious few gifts to give,
But my love to my lady and music that might help relieve.

I don't know where we get it, but we'll soon forget it.
With life goes rememberance, it seams.
And all of my lyrics, if no one can hear it,
I hope there's some semblance in dreams.

And someone might find it and some day rewrite it--
I hope someone some day just may
Be the artist to strum it or the poet to rhyme it
And share it with someone, some way,

'Cause for now I,
I have my life to live.
Precious few gifts to give,
But my love to my lady and music that might help believe.

And we all have our lives to live,
Precious few gifts to give--
And laughter and love should be ranked above what we achieve.

So give me the sunshine and some time to unwind
And sit with my feet in the water.
Strummin' my guitar and hummin' a few bars
Without words, for what do they matter?

And now and again, when a change in the wind
Moves us inside or off of the ocean,
The moments we should steal are when happy we feel
When simply no longer in motion.
