lyrics

I WANT TO LIVE

I want to live

Figuring out where it all comes from
Ignoring the beat of the drum
Looking for an answer I can give
Trying to understand my youth
Reading self-help books to find the truth
I didn’t forget about anything but to live

I want to live

I asked myself a thousand times
When will these bells cease to chime
The answer it is blowing in the wind
And it becomes a bit pathetic now
Even the doctors don’t know how
Can anybody give me some kind of hint
About how to live
Cause I want to live
I want to live

Now that the lights are being dimmed
It’s high time for some kind of hymn
A hymn to the beauty that sustains
So I summon up all my courage now
Open the curtains, take a bow
And join in song repeating the refrain
Cause I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
I want to live
