Name of Song: Playing with fire

You can give and give and give because it’s duty,
Or you can take and take and take, so nice to take,
You can love and love and love despite no answer,
This is a better way to handle what you have at stake.

We can all explain the reasons we stopped loving,
We can all explain how it wasn’t very fair,
We can all feel like we were used and abused forever,
Remaining forever in this state of unaware.

Chorus
You can jump up and be yourself, actually forever,
If you try to understand and be more kind,
You may often feel the threat of searing fire,
It’s just your past reminding what you left behind.

There are people who would rather have you hate more,
In fact they seem to think that everyone else is bad,
They are very busy destroying life and sinning lots,
They see themselves this way, it really very sad.

Chorus
You can jump up and be yourself, actually forever,
If you try to understand and be more kind,
You may often feel the threat of searing fire,
It’s just your past reminding what you left behind.

There are people who are always great to hang around with,
They seem to always find the rightness in those they meet,
It’s no secret why they make you feel so special,
They have a habit of being kind but yet discreet.

It’s important that we protect these types of people,
After all they are the ones who make life worth the fight,
It’s seems an endless game to destroy the good in all of us,
It’s just a few that make your life seem not alright.

Chorus
You can jump up and be yourself, actually forever,
If you try to understand and be more kind,
You may often feel the threat of searing fire,
It’s just your past reminding what you left behind.

There are purposes and goals worth continually going for,
You may have thought of one or two just as we speak,
To stay on your purpose no matter who you come in contact with,
Is a winning way to finally reach your peak. 

You can love your fellow man without too much effort,
You can even love your enemies just as much,
That doesn’t mean you lose your choice of who you hang with,
It means that those who stir your ire, can’t keep you stuck.

Chorus
You can jump up and be yourself, actually forever,
If you try to understand and be more kind,
You may often feel the threat of searing fire,
It’s just your past reminding what you left behind.
