What the hell have we done
To get this far down?
Yeah take a look at us now
And what we've become
Seems like we're taking care of everybody else
But we forgot our own
A soldier, a beggin' man
Yeah another homeless child
Give us somethin' to live for
Somethin' we can hold on to
Somethin' to believe in
Like the love between me and you
Caught up in a game that I know we can win
To lose it all now - oh, what a sin
I'll keep my faith - no I'll never change
Give us somethin' to live for
Give us somethin' to live for
All of us took a left
When we should've gone right
Oh what happened to us brothers and sisters?
Now all we do is fight
Yeah face to face
And eye to eye
How do we mend this smokin' heart?
Give us somethin' to live for
Somethin' we can hold on to
Somethin' to believe in
Like the love between me and you
Caught up in a game that I know we can win
To lose it all now - oh, what a sin
I'll keep my faith - no I'll never change
Give us somethin' to live for
Give us somethin' to live for
We all need somethin' to believe in
Goin' down a dead end road
Like a freight train on the tracks
Lord - carryin' a heavy load
Oh and it's about to break us in half
Give us somethin' to live for
Somethin' we can hold on to
Somethin' to believe in
Like the love between me and you
Caught up in a game that I know we can win
To lose it all now - oh, what a sin
I'll keep my faith - no I'll never change
Give us somethin' to live for
Somethin' to live for
Gimme somethin' to live for
