Our lives are a simple story

Played by the hands of fate

And everything goes so wrong

The time you feel most great

Hey, but that's just the way time works

Nothing we can do

Its on of life's little quirks

Everyone knows its truth

Love is why we live

Sadness is why we die

That is just the way life works

There needn't be reason why

Hate is why we're lost

Love is why we're found

There's nothing I'd be without

Your voice's gentle sound

By my side.

Is there something wrong with us

Or is it just that we can't understand?

Our lives are just in an hourglass

Said to be important as each grain of sand

But what happens when that time runs out?

And it doesn't matter who lives?

Thats just the way life goes

That I'm positi-ive.

Love is why we live

Sadness is why we die

That is just the way life works

There needn't be reason why

Hate is why we're lost

Love is why we're found

There's nothing I'd be without

Your voice's gentle sound

By my side.

I thought I could be just as important

But I'm nothing compared to you.

The truth hurts, doesn't it?

When life is just plain cruel.

I can't remember the time before

I met you on that fateful day

If you love me so much

Why can't you say?

Love is why we're here on Earth

Hate is why there's death

We relish the life we continually have

With every passing second's breath

Happiness is why we keep moving on

Sadness increases our will

But whats the point of going on

When I love you still?

Love is why we live

Sadness is why we die

That is just the way life works

There needn't be reason why

Hate is why we're lost

Love is why we're found

There's nothing I'd be without

Your voice's gentle sound

By my side.
