Name of Song: Live as though you’re going to die

There is a way to living strong,
As though you’re going to die,
For those who really understand
that pain from always trying.

Imagine you’re told you’re dying,
Just a short time left to live,
Things take on a different feel
when you cease on thinking IF.

Preparing all your family,
For what’s in store for them,
The truth is you’ll be leaving soon,
And your family needs those gems.

Chorus
Forced to solve a sudden loss
It’s part of how you think,
Survival blends your thoughts as one,
Necessity is the link.
Live as though you’re going to die,
Necessity makes anew,
Now and future focus keeps you
on what you always knew.
______

Necessity links this power of life
to what you need to do,
It doesn’t see those negatives,
It only sees just you.

It only sees how can be done,
That life force reigns supreme,
Use as much as you desire
of your own necessity.

Invent a reason for living,
True or false, who cares,
Bringing love to one’s own self
stops blaming over there.

Chorus
Forced to solve a sudden loss
It’s part of how you think,
Survival blends your thoughts as one,
Necessity is the link.
Live as though you’re going to die,
Necessity makes anew,
Now and future focus keeps you
on what you always knew.

It doesn’t see those negatives,
It only sees just you.

It only sees how can be done,
Our life force reigns supreme,
