We Live

I just love this song by the punk band, SuperChic[k], and no, this is not and endorsement of all their music. 



{Lyrics}

There's a cross on the side of the road
Where a mother lost her son
How could she know that the morning he left
Would be the last time, she'd trade
with him for a little more time
(so she could say she loved him one last time)
And hold him tight
But with life, we never know
when we're coming up to the end of the road
So what do we do then?
With tragedy around the bend?

We live, we love, we forgive
and never give up
'cause the days we are given
are gifts from above
and today we remember to live and to love

There's a man who waits for the tests
to see if the cancer has spread yet
And now he asks 'so why did I wait to live
'til it was time to die'?
'If I could have the time back, how I'd live!'
(Life is such a gift)
So how does the story end?
Well, this is your story and it all depends
So don't let it become true
Get out and do what you were meant to do

We live, we love, we forgive
and never give up
'cause the days we are given
are gifts from above
and today we remember to live and to love

Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The Weather in life outside is
storming
But what would it take for the clouds to break
For us to realize each day
Is a gift, somehow, someway
And get our heads up out of this
darkness
And spark this new mindset and
start on with life 'cause it ain't gone yet
And tragedy's a reminder to
take off the blinders and wake up
(to live the life)
We're supposed to take up
(moving forward)
With all our heads up
'cause life is worth living


We live, we love, we forgive
and never give up
'cause the days we are given
are gifts from above
and today we remember to live and to love
