The Gift Of Life



Take no failure - live no life in dreams
Always waiting for a change
Still you're longing for a world
That's not so cruel
Life on earth feels so insane

You can't stand you're always on your own
(You're hanging on a wire)
Why you never had no friends
Feel so sad
But you've got enough of all those tears
'Cause they're coming back each day
They're coming back till

You know - life is a gift
Don't go - try to believe
Trying - I wanna make you understand
You know - life is to live
Don't go - try to receive
Crying - still comes back till
You know - the gift of life

You're a winner in your fantasies
But in real life you're lost
You never try to fight
Depression rules your mind
No it never fades away
It never fades till


I know it's hard when you're on your own
I know it's cruel living all alone
Just reach out for a hand
There's always someone who understands
It's not as hard as it seems

Just try to receive
This is the game you must not leave
You only win if you want
(If you want)
I can see you're out of strength
You're incomplete
You must fight
Then you won't be your own defeat

Just try to hold on
Never give up
You'll find your way out
Right back to love

Give your life - existence
Give this fight - resistance
Live your life - subsistence
Leave this fight - out distance
