"Because You Live" as written by Andreas Carlsson, Chris Braide and Desmond Child....
Staring out at the rain with a heavy heart
Its the end of the world in my mind
Then your voice pulls me back
Like a wake-up call

I've been looking for the answer
Somewhere
I couldn't see that it was right there
But now I know, what I didn't know

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself
When nobody else can help
Because you live girl
My world
Has twice as many stars in the sky

It's all right.
I survived.
I'm alive again
Cause of you, made it through every storm
What is life? what's the use?
If you're killing time

I'm so glad I found an angel
Someone
Who was there when all my hopes fell
I want to fly looking your eyes

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself
When nobody else can help
Because you live girl
My world
Has twice as many stars in the sky

Because you live, I live

Because you live, there's a reason why
I carry on when I lose the fight
I want to give what you've given me
Always

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself
When nobody else can help
Because you live girl
My world
Has twice as many stars in the sky

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself
When nobody else can help
Because you live girl
My world
Has everything I need to survive
Because you live, I live
I live

    General Commenti'm so embarassed, i did not type any of that crap, and i'm not gay so dont think i am, please, i'm not gay, you've got to believe me. you see, my friend is gay, well, he's not really my friend just so you know, but he knows me, i mean i dont even talk to him that much, but anyway the point is i'm not gay, and he got my password and typed all that becuase he likes jesse mccartney, i certainly didnt write all that becuase i dont like jesse mccartney, and i'm not gay, i'm striaght i love girls, please dont think i'm gay becuase its just not true. alright, thats what happened, he just wanted to humiliate me in front of all the wonderful friends i have on the internet, and i'm not gay just so you know.

    General CommentThis song is so good. My friend dedicated it to me the other day. I know its him singing about A chick. but she did it any way. It was so cute lol. Coz she was going through a tough time then she met me and I made her happy again. And I give her confidence..
