LIFE WILL NOT GO AWAY*

LIFE WILL NOT GO AWAY
Written by Melanie Safka and David Bruen

The other night I dream I died
Close friends mourned and loved one cried
I wanted to shout down from my dream and say
Life will not go away

You can die in battle, you can die in sleep
Even though you lose most everything
There’s always something you will keep
You can take my body but I will not die
Life will not go away

Li di di di di . . .
Life will not go way

You can’t take it with you but there is this little part
That goes and continues in the realm of the heart
So rejoice in living and let the music play
Life will not go away

Well you won’t take baggage when your time has come
Dreams go with you and deeds will be undone
So remember every promise and don’t be lead astray
Life will not go away

Li di di di di . . .
Life will not go away

I will leave the planet quieter than it was yesterday
Life will not go away

Li di di di di . . .
Life will not go away

Well you won’t take baggage when your time has come
Dreams go with you and deeds will be undone
So remember every promise and don’t be lead astray
I will leave the planet quieter than it was yesterday
Life will not go awayLIFE WILL NOT GO AWAY
