    Don’t you know.................................someone is dying
    Don’t you know.................................their love ones are crying
    who is to show..................................those that are denying
    who is to show..................................those that are never trying
    I wonder why....................................I’m striving to live
    I wonder why....................................I’m attempting to give
    who am I...........................................endeavoring to show my love
    who am I...........................................to the Almighty above
    can’t you see....................................we need to take the chance
    can’t you see....................................we need to take a stance
    love we need....................................to always strive,
    love we need....................................if we are to say we are alive
