Something For Nothing

This song is by Lionsheart and appears on the album Pride In Tact (1994).

It's a strange way of making a living
When you're getting much less than you're giving
And you're losing much more than you're winning

Why do we do it?
I don't know
Why do we do it?

Art for art's sake, it don't pay
To be giving yourself away
It's for love, there's no money
What you get is something for nothing
Something for nothing, yeah

All the effort twice the pain
Even though there's nothing to gain
There's no choice but to do it again
And again and again

Why do we do it?
I don't know
Why do we do it?

Art for art's sake, it don't pay
To be giving yourself away
It's for love, there's no money
What you get is something for nothing
Something for nothing, yeah

If you're believing in this kind of dream
You may not know when it's over
You're given it all, all that you had
For the chance to be just that bit closer
This dream has a hold, you can't be told
That what you are doing is crazy
You'll never give in though you can't win
They tell you you're blind
That you're out of your mind
But you think you can never be wrong

Why do we do it?
I don't know
Why do we do it?

Art for art's sake, it don't pay
To be giving yourself away
It's for love, there's no money
What you get is something for...

Art for art's sake, it don't pay
To be giving yourself away
It's for love, there's no money
What we get is something for nothing
Something for nothing, yeah
Something for nothing
