Reasons For Livin'

This song is by The Boxmasters and appears on the album Modbilly (2009).

I like to drink and I like to smoke
I like women who like to sin
But I've got liver disease and a spot on my lung
And a sore on my lip now and then

I like it fast and I like it hard
I like to stand out on the edge of the hill
But my mind has gone slow and my body has gone soft
And my balance is losing its will

When it's no longer a given
That your heart won't quit trying
'Cause the reason it's living
Is the reason it's dying

This life ain't too forgiving
When it's time you are buying
And your reasons for living
Are the reason you're dying

I don't like to sleep and waste my time
I like the light to shine on me
But I'm getting tired and the time draws near
That light, they say will set you free

I love to play the game of life
I fight its wars like a bar room lord
But this machine that I'm playing with
I've asked more from than it can afford

When it's no longer a given
That your heart won't quit trying
'Cause the reason it's living
Is the reason it's dying

This life ain't too forgiving
When it's time you are buying
And your reasons for living
Are the reason you're dying

And your reasons for living
Are the reason you're dying
