The Gift
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 9-2013/1-2014

Life is much quicker than the river often flows
Love is like a mountain, quiet as it grows
Each must find a rhythm, equal to its rhyme
Each one has its moment and each has its time

Oh Life is to live...everyday
And Love is the Gift

--- Chorus ---
Thorn and blossom, flesh and blood
Take a little, give enough
To be touched, to be loved...and love
To be given life and love
-----------------
Now I can't stop dying, it's useless to try
This time I'm laughing, before I cry
All of grudges are just waving goodbye
All of a sudden, there's light in the sky

Oh Life is to live...everyday
And Love is the Gift

-Repeat Chorus-
-Repeat Intro-

Sometimes I'm looking, sometimes you see
One time I noticed, You looking back at me
Every so often, when I kiss you good night
I live and I give and I love our good life

Oh Life is to live...everyday
And Love is the Gift
And Love is the Gift
And Love is the Gift
