LIFE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          I.  see the man
              with newspaper in his shoes,
              stubble on his chin,
              and troubled avenues...
              to him the world
              is a place to lose.

   CHORUS A:  life,
              don't let me see you that way.
              put a looking glass
              behind every day
              to reflect
              the hidden sides.
              give me
              a billion eyes,
              a billion eyes.

         II.  crying now,
              he lives in his yesterdays,
              talkin' on the street
              to ev'ry empty space.
              to him the world
              is a lonely place.

        III.  senators,
              he says they don't belong.
              he's got strong beliefs,
              but noone goes along.
              he thinks he's right
              and they're all wrong.

              (repeat chorus A)

         IV.  burned his home
              with his fam'ly stuck inside.
              tried to kill himself,
              but something went awry.
              to him the world
              is a place to die.

   CHORUS B:  I said, life,
              don't let me see you that way.
              put a looking glass
              behind every day
              to reflect
              the hidden sides.
              give me
              a billion eyes.

     ENDING:  I said, life,
              don't let me see you that way.
              life,
              don't let me see you that way.
              don't let me see you that way-hey-hey.
              I said, li-i-ife,
              don't let me see you that way.
              don't let me see you that way.
