Lyrics
LIFE IS FOR LIVING

Hey now gonna look around me
Hey now there’s so much to see
Hey now life is for living
And I don’t want to miss a single thing

Sun comes in and the portable radio calls me up to meet the day
The blankets are heavy and the pillow is deep, so it takes a few minutes to get it straight
Here I am in my bed, my house, that’s my toe peeking out of the sheets
My arms reach up, my legs stretch down, here I am all in one piece

Chorus:

Hit the floor, I’m heading for the back door, out to see what I can see
Mom’s calling me in, I know I should go, but the world’s fascinating from the top of a tree
Look at a leaf fall, listen to a bird call, smell an apple blossoming
Whoop at the sky, let it know I’m here, right here where it’s happening

Chorus:

In the house Dad’s frowning at the world state, Mom is worrying about her weight
Sister’s glued to the telephone wondering if she’s got a Saturday date
They can’t see a leaf fall, they’ll never hear a bird call, they can’t smell an apple blossoming
Hey come on out, I wish you were here, right here where it’s happening

Chorus:

c 1993, Barbara Martin
