1. Live For Life

From the recording Live For Life

This is a song I wrote years ago but never recorded.  Over the years I changed some of the lyrics and added parts here and there.  I always wanted to record it but it sat on the back shelf, occasionally bringing it out to play with.  I finally got around to recording it in 2012 in my Tijeras studio and Brian Boggs played the harmonica part...Thanks Brian!  All other parts by John DeYoung.


Live For Life
Live for life, not so long lasting
Time is short, take time for basking
You and me, we make what have we
Imprisoned or free, time is passing
Live for the moment, live for today
Some live only minutes, some live for hours
Some live long lifetimes, some live for power
No one is immortal, no special favors
Live life in loving and peaceful endeavors
Live for the moment, live for today
