​Temporary Things

This song is by DeGarmo and Key and appears on the album Commander Sozo & The Charge Of The Light Brigade (1985).

What's that 'round my ankles?
Are they vines of worldliness
Binding up my soul
In a barren wilderness?
It's a day-to-day struggle
For pleasure and things
Often there's nothing
A treasure with wings

Things come to steal
To steal your heart away
Right before your eyes
Your light starts to fade
And you wonder what it is your living for

I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things

When I think back on the cross
And the man who gave His life
I want to live for more
Than things that rust or die
I don't want to struggle
For the things that pass away
I want to live my life
For the things that never fade

Things come to steal
To steal your heart away
Right before your eyes
Your light starts to fade
And you wonder what it is your living for

I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things

I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
I don't want to live for temporary things
