Live Your Life


What do you want?
'A life.'
What do you need?
'A life.'
What are you seeking?
'A life'.
Then what's keeping you from living?

And don't say 'things'.
Or a happiness someone else brings.

What do you want?
'A life.'
What do you need?
'A life.'
What are you seeking?
'A life'.
Then what's keeping you from living?

And don't say 'if'.
With wishes you could.
Or live your life 'if' someone understood.
So you could do as you please.

What do you want?
'A life.'
What do you need?
'A life.'
What are you seeking?
'A life'.
Then what's keeping you from living?

And don't say 'if'.
With wishes you could.
Or live your life 'if' someone understood.
So you could do as you please.

Get up and do it.
Live your life.
Get up and do it.
Live.
Get up and do it.
Live your life.
Get up and do it.
Live.

And don't say 'if'.
With wishes you could.
Or live your life 'if' someone understood.
So you could do as you please.

What do you want?
'A life.'
What do you need?
'A life.'
What are you seeking?
'A life'.
Then what's keeping you from living?

Get up and do it.
Live your life.
Get up and do it.
Live.
Get up and do it.
Live your life.
Get up and do it.
Live.
