Name of Song: You don’t have to die

I’ve pulled the plug on dying,
It’s been there oh so long,
Body urges that seem so strong
And make me feel I’m wrong.

My past is strewn with losses,
Of leaving myself behind,
So automatic, such waste of time,
Convinced it was sublime.

Sometimes hard to conceive of living,
Within my lonely view,
But it’s all I’ve got, it’s all I’ve had,
Sadly didn’t have a clue.

Chorus
Memories etched in loving,
Attached to my own being,
Leaving self in all I’ve loved,
Seemed so very freeing.
We all desire immortal,
Even though we are
Spirits simply lost in time,
Trying to move afar.

Dying is just decision,
One we all can make,
Because of overwhelm inside,
It’s often hard to take.

Winning over dying,
We seem to keep coming back,
Immortality striving for,
So we have another crack.

Chorus
Memories etched in loving,
Attached to my own being,
Leaving self in all I’ve loved,
Seemed so very freeing.
We all desire immortal,
Even though we are
Spirits simply lost in time,
Trying to move afar.
