Reason to Live

Sitting in an empty room
Filled with thoughts
Of gloom and doom
Things are gettin' outa hand

All alone with no one to call
I see the writing on the wall
It's kinda hard to understand
What I need is another band

And a reason to live, a reason to live
I'm looking for a reason to live
No where to run no where to hide
Even time is not on my side

Maybe it's just a dream
Like floating down a stream
And going
where it takes you

Then you wake up and it's real
You don't know how to feel
When somebody shakes you
Then you break up without a clue

And a reason to live, a reason to live
Everybody needs a reason to live
No where to run No where to hide
Even time is not on my side

My days have numbers
Like the ones on the clock
All I can hear is
tick tick tick tick, tock tock tock tock

Waiting for the end to come
Don't know where it's coming from
But I'll find
something to believe in

I forgive all of you
But most of all I forgive me too
I guess I'll just break even
There's a legacy I'm leavin'

With a reason to live a reason to live
Everybody needs a reason to live
No where to run No where to hide
Even time is not on my side

My sand castles are floating away
Drifting off into yesterday

reason to live, reason to live
You are my reason to live

Song Comments

MUSIC IS TRUTH
Richard brings some true country / americana vibe to us though a dark song there is hope a lingering inside of it. With Jon Statham singing this one strikes home instantly and brings a special storyline and message we all need, a reason to live, a reason to love and be loved. A plea and hope for us to do the best we can, forgive forget, move on and keep on happening despite the struggles. I forgive all of you The clincher here for me is these few lines, which are compelling and true "But most of all I forgive me too I guess I'll just break even There's a legacy I'm leavin'" That is what it is all about. Even though we fall short many times we have to forgive others and ourselves for our follies mistakes and offenses. Accept Adapt Adjust Do the best you can. Kudo's to Richard and his rootsy song sprinkled with hope inside the darkness he shares with us. we all just have to work out our own way to find a sense of being here and figuring out what it is all about in our days that we have, the runway gets shorter everyday so make the best of everyday and embrace the challenges and make everyday worth living. Cheers and much success to Richard
