Live to Love

Credits: 
Music and Lyrics: Pete Sears B.M.I.

The Rhythm of our lives flow by as the sun sets in the western sky
It's only up for us to say what's right or wrong and when to stay
We ride headlong into the fray, and we live to love another way
Sometimes I wish the rain would stay, or come back on some other day

Sometimes we slip and fall alone, cross the raging river stone by stone
We usually reap what we have sown; by and by the white bird has flown
Through the darkest night new hope is born, with each new day by the light of dawn
Fight the raging current till, we find our way by our own free will

Chorus:
Try not to lose faith in your fellow man, but if he knocks you down, take a stand
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, let's make the most of what's given to us
Never met a newborn I didn't like, and I hope they grow toward the light
But if they fall there’s only us to blame, the life they know is the life we gave to them

Take me to your place of rest; I'll give to you my very best
When you're feeling weary come to me, we'll dance together by the sea
The sanctity of life is blessed, as your hair flows down across your breast
All we want is life to be, all creatures on this earth to be free

Try to keep an open mind, let no man of your will deprive
Let your conscience be your guide, try to hate no man alive
To forgive is to release, a healing power and inner peace
When we fall short, blame no one, one for all and all for one

Chorus:
Try not to lose faith in your fellow man, but if he knocks you down, take a stand
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, let's make the most of what's given to us
Never met a newborn I didn't like, and I hope they grow toward the light
But if they fall there’s only us to blame, the life they know is the life we gave to them

To trim the lamps for those in need, takes courage, strength and harmony
Let's build a nest lest they should fall, a little from each means a lot for all
Up in the sky fly's the white-winged dove, stay kind and true to those you love
That poor old man in the gutter mud, could be an angel from above

Live in the moment come what may, let no man tell you what to say
Spread your light when skies are grey, and live to love another day
Respect all creatures great and small, there's never enough, but there's enough for all
When storm clouds gather, and you begin to fall, lean to the wind and stand up tall

Chorus:
Try not to lose faith in your fellow man, but if he knocks you down, take a stand
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, let's make the most of what's given to us
Never met a newborn I didn't like, and I hope they grow toward the light
But if they fall there’s only us to blame, the life they know is the life we gave to them

Spread your light when skies are grey, and live to love another day
Spread your light when skies are grey, and live to love another day
Spread your light when skies are grey, and live to love another day
Spread your light when skies are grey, and live to love another day
