Lyrics

Chet Baker

You can't change life. But life can change u.
In just an instant.ur life cud be taken away

[Chorus:]
Why do we.....live our lives
If we all.....gona diee
See I wish.....life wud last
But it goes....by so fast

[Verse 1 :]
God created you then he took you away
Out of all the people in the world, why dint he let you stay
You shouldn't have gone at such an early stage
If you stayed alive, everything wud av changed
When you died, I dint get to see you
So wen I die, I hope to god I get to meet you
Rest in peace meadow, we all thinkin about you
Heaven wouldn't be heaven if it was without you
I just want the answer to why she had to go
Woz it 'cause of life, and because its so low
Or woz it 'cause you were special and he couldnt let go
Please tell me, I just want to know
I asked for a sister, and he gave me one
You were born,5 mins later you life was gone
See, I believe in him now 'cause he answered my call
But life is life and were always gona fall

[Chorus:]
Why do we.....live our lives
If we all.....gona diee
See I wish.....life wud last
But it goes....by so fast

[Verse 2:]
You gotta live each day as if it is your last
'cause when you look at it,your life is goin by fast
You can't even go back to change the past
Not even to change wot put you in a plaster cast
No need to cherish luxuries,'cause they come and go
There's no need to look for tings that don't even show
Coz even the life you have can be borrowed
Coz you're not even guaranteed you're life tomorrow
Looking on the streets, all I see is greed
Thankin god that wasn't me, that I saw on da street
There's no one to hold on to and no one to pull you out
Somethings that have been done we can do without
Everythin we do in life is just in vain
Even a guy with the best life can still die in pain
So ill ask god agen and hope he answers my call
But life is life and were always gona fall

[Chorus: (same as above)]
[Verse 3:]
Life in this world is gettin worse and worse
You can tell by the lyrics I'm spittin on this verse
The world is covered by a plague as if it was a curse
Shit loadza people dyin and getin pulled away in a hearse
I'm holdin on to the life that god has gave me
But if anythin does happen, I hope he saves me
One day in life, the world is gona end
Don't act like you don't knw, please don't pretend
Were all gona get wiped out, it scares me for real
My friends and family gone, how do you think I feel?
People start to panic start riots and steal
They won't care nomore,maybe they'll even kill
See the life we live may not be da best
So we need to sort it out and lay it out to rest
So ill ask god agen, and hope he answers my call
But life is life and were always gona fall.

[Chorus: (same as above)]
