With just one life, I’ve got to live it
With just one heart, I’ve got to give it
With just one soul, this I know, I can’t let it go
Just two hands, I’ve got to use them, or I am going to lose them
Make the world a better place
Not just for one special face
Not for love or lust
Can’t leave anyone in the dust
Going to have to carry them all
Or we will fall
And when I say we
Know, that’s you and me
Him and her, he and she
All those great things we hope to be
Like the fruit of life falling off a giving tree
Haven’t you taken long enough? Won’t you open your eyes and see!
Just what this could be
Life filled with possibility
I’ve got just one heart
And I better use it, or I’m going to lose it
Going to lose it
I’ve got just one soul
And I better believe
Or what makes me, me, is going to leave
It’s been one lifetime, what more do you need to see?
The fruits of life won’t all fall to you from trees
Sometimes you need realize happiness comes in different degrees
Not always hot or cold, declined or sold
Maybe we’re just meant to be in-between
The morning sun and a moonlit dream
Picturesque perfection is known to deceive
Even the finest things aren’t always what they seem to be
I can give you one thing to believe in and it is me
To give life we must plant a seed
Can’t you recognize you have brothers and sisters in need?
If they were dying on the street, who would we be, not to feed?
Just a nobleman on his high horse looking down his nose in greed
We’ve got just one life; tell me what more do you need?
Dare be the man whose expectations you exceed
What length wouldn’t you go if I told you your loved ones didn’t have to bleed?
