"Something to live for" as written by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn....
It doesn't seem that long since hope was out of mind and I was just
Surviving for the day
Suddenly a combination came my way
Giving me the strength for come what may

[Chorus]
I've got something to live for
Got a reason to want more
Ain't going down
I intend to hang around
I've got something to live for
Got a reason to want more
Ain't going down
I intend to hang around

All the dreams I thought that I could never make
Fear is now a million miles away
The choice is mine, and I'm alive in heart and head
I swallow my protection everyday

[Chorus x 2]
