Live, live forever,
Live forever on, for me.
Live until you’re complete,
Until you’re what you want to be.

Live for the sun, for the moon,
Live for the stars and sky.
Live for yourself, anyone, anything,
And you’ll find that time will pass you by.

Live in the moment, not in the past,
Live and don’t be shy.
Live on a mountain, live next to the sea,
We can live in the sky.

Live for the joy of music,
Live for the joy of love.
Live for the joy of living.
All you need is love.

Live despite the pain.
Survive the thunder, outlast the rain.
Live through the tears, all the years,
And you’ll have more to gain.

Live for the sake of the pain.
Relish the thunder, sing in the rain.
The tears let you know that you can still grow,
Open your eyes and you’ll have the world to gain.

Open your eyes and take a good look,
Look at everything there is to live for.
Open your eyes, open them wide,
And there will always be more.
