Oh Life

Oh, Life
You can make me lie down
But I won’t go to sleep
You can make me cry out loud
But I’ll never weep
Take away all my possessions
There’s something that I’ll keep
Oh, Life,
The longer you make the nights,
The more I count the days
You can make my heart ache
But I won’t feel the pain
Drive me half crazy
But I won’t go insane
After all you try to put me through
I’ll still come out the same
Oh, Life,
The longer you make the nights,
The more I count the days.
You can make me go now,
But I’ll never leave
Bring on shame and blame and sorrow
But I’ll never grieve
You can raise every doubt and then some
I’ll still believe
Oh, Life,
The longer you make the nights
The more I count the days
I said, the longer you make my cold, dark nights,
The more I count the days
You can drag me through the darkness
And I still will see
Lock me up behind your prison bars
I’ll still be free
Even make me wish I was someone else
I’ll still be me
Oh, Life,
The longer you make the nights,
The more I count the days
Life,
Hey, Life
It’s about time
Get this…
(Music)
You can table every motion
But I won’t wait
Cast a frown on every notion
But I’ll not hesitate
To navigate your seven oceans
Himalayas of hate
Oh, Life, Oh, Life,
The longer you make the dark night,
Oh yeah,
I said, the longer you make the cold, dark night…
The more I kiss the sky and
Count the days, yeah
The more you try to keep me in the darkness
Hey, Hey!
The more I’m
Goin’ to Count – Count out loud, two, three, four…
The more I Count – you can count on me –
The longer you make the long, lonely night,
The more I
Count
The days.
