Give To Live

I was driving 5 hours to get to a site today for work and was shuffling through the CD collection and came across Sammy Hagar's song, "Give to Live". The lyrics are absolutely spot on and really sum up life and what I think of it and how we should live our lives.

For those that have read some of my rants, I have an extensive experience with the emergency services and have seen probably the worst of the worst in life from homicides, suicides, accidents, etc. I have zero tolerance for suicide. I have zero tolerance for people who come to sites like this and blab on about how they've had enough and are leaving this world.  Life is what you make of it- you can't let what life has dealt you, get you down. There's loads of both free and fee-for-service help out there. Use it and start to live life and enjoy what's out there.

 

Anyway, the lyrics to Sammy's song are:

Oooh--

I can see that you've got fire in your eyes

And pain inside your heart

So many things have come and torn your world apart

Oh baby, baby, baby, don't give up, don't give up

don't give up

If you want love

If you want love, you've got to give a little

If you want love

If you want faith, you just believe a little

If you want love

If you want peace, turn your cheek a little

Ohhh, you've got to give

You've got to give

You've got to give.....to live



An empty hand reaching out for someone

An empty heart takes so little to fill

It's so much easier to push instead of pull

Oh baby, baby, baby

Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up

If you want love

If you want love, you've got to give a little

If you want love

If you want faith, you just believe a little

If you want love

If you want peace, turn your cheek a little

Ohhh, you've got to give

You've got to give

You've got to give....to live



Each man's a country in his own right

Oh, every body needs a friend

One friend, one God, one country

No man need defend

I believe in fate and destination

But so much of that lies in our own hands

If you know what you want, just go on out and get it

Oh baby, baby

Don't give up, don't give up

Yeah, yeah

If you want love



If you want love, you've got to give a little

If you want love

If you want faith, you just believe a little

If you want love

If you want peace, turn your cheek a little

You want love

You've got to give

If you want love

Give to live

You've got to give to live

Give to live

Give to live

If you want love

If you want love

If you want love

You've got to give

You've got to give

You've got to give
