How long do I have to live?
How long do I have to give?
How long do I have to love?
No one knows for sure
So I keep on writing
I keep on singing
I keep on dreaming for a better deal
for the people of the USA and world
especially for the working poor
working two jobs or double shifts
just to make ends meet

The morning passes slowly at the local cafe
with Madonna music on the radio
with the sun now blazing over the mountain
and traffic zipping by on Route 25
All I can do is to meet the day
with an open mind and heart
considering my passing only in passing
keepin’ on writing and singing
striving to share my genuine self
to not be a phony, or manipulative
and not grasping at love
just letting it be

How long do I have to live?
How long do I have to give
How long do I have to love
No one can say
