​Dying To Live

This song is by Jonny Lang and appears on the album Long Time Coming (2003).

You know I've heard it said there's beauty in distortion
By some people who withdraw to find their head
And they say that there is humor in misfortune
No, I wonder if they'll laugh when I am dead

Why am I fighting to live, if I'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see, when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give, when no one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live, If I'm just living to die?

You know some people say that values are subjective
But they're just speaking words, That someone else has said
And so they live and fight and kill with no objective
Sometimes it's hard to tell the living from the dead

Why am I fighting to live, if I'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see, when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give, when no one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live, If I'm just living to die?

You know I used to weave my words into confusion
And so I hope you'll understand me, when I'm trough
You know I used to live my life as an illusion
But reality will make my dream come true

So I'll keep fighting to live, Till there's no reason to fight
And I'll keep trying to see, Until the end is in sight
You know I'm trying to give, so come on give me a try
You know I'm dying to live until I'm ready to die...
