Name of Song: What I want for you

Chorus
What I want for you is something very simple,
To live your life as though you’re never gonna die,
To love yourself as much as you try to love another,
To help yourself as much as you try to help someone else.

You’re very special and I want for you to deep down know that,
Not because I say so, but because you’ll come to know it’s true,
To know your love is just as big as those you envy,
Because among spirits the idea of who’s best does not prevail.

You are a credit to what you’ve done and who you’re being,
It’s such a habit of humans to think of things they shouldn’t have done,
But you can always take responsibility for things you now see,
Such is the goodness and innate rightness that lives in us.

I really want to see you strive for more than you’ve ever strived for,
It’s such a thrill to compete within your very self,
Be most kind to yourself as well as other people,
And keep on striving to be the best friend you’ve ever had.

Being an embodied spirit on Earth is quite a challenge,
As the only thing they see is what you’re in,
As a spirit you appear invisible to other bodies,
But when you die that lie dissolves and there you are.

Chorus
What I want for you is something very simple,
To live your life as though you’re never gonna die,
To love yourself as much as you try to love another,
To help yourself as much as you try to help someone else.
