Imitation of Life Lyrics

by Gregory Porter

What is love without the giving
Without love you're only living
An imitation
An imitation of life

Skies above in flaming colour
Without love they're so much duller
A false creation
An imitation of life

Would the song of the lark be just as sweet
Would the moon be as bright above
Every day would be grey and incomplete
Without the one you love

Lips that kiss and tell you clearly
Without this our lives are merely
An imitation
An imitation of life
