"Something to Live For" as written by Willie Mitchell and Al L. Green....
I have almost everything a human could desire
Cars and houses, bear skin rugs to place before my fire
But there's somethin' missin'
Somethin' isn't there
It seems I'm never kissin' the one whom I could care for

I want somethin' to live for
Someone to make my life an adventurous dream
Oh, what wouldn't I give for
Someone who'd take my life and make it seem
Gay as they say it ought to be

Why can't I have love like that brought to me?
My eyes is watching the noon sun
Searching the promenades, seeking a clue
To the one who will always be my
Somethin' to live for
I want somethin' to live for
I want somethin' to live for
