Song For The Living

People live and die these days
Thinking there’s nothing wrong
The balance of life, a slippery slope
Don’t ya know it
Don’t you hear it
Does it take so long
This is a song for the living
It’s not our time to die
This is a song for the living
Oh baby please don’t cry

Sometimes I wonder what we’ve done,
I wonder where we’ve gone
Our lives seem so cheap and false
Don’t you feel it
Don’t you know it
Have you done no wrong
This is a song for the living
It’s not our time to die
This is a song for the living
Baby please don’t cry

Love and ignorance knows no bounds
But I see the truth in their eyes
There’s beauty everywhere
I can see it
I can taste it
I can feel this song
This is a song for the living
It’s not our time to die
This is a song for the living
Baby you and I
(Repeat last chorus x 2)

Scott Leslie Vero Beach, Florida

In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences. ... more
