Lyrics

To give is the reason I live To give all I can give In return for the life that I earn

I was born as a part of the plan With the heart of a man With a will to survive

And I believe Everything on this earth Having meaning and worth

Made of concrete and air Is to share and to feel Justify, I exist

To describe on the list Of someone With a place in the sun

Here I stand Reaching out for the sky Till the day that I die

I must give all I can When I go I'll go out empty hand

Leaving dust to the land Just the soul I have found Leaves the ground
