"Life" as written by Kemar Mcgregor, Wyndel Edwards, C. Campbell, A. Martin, D. Johnson and G.rose....
One comes of it
Love it, love it
Let go of it
Love comes from it
We're not of this world for long

Faith and promise keep me honest
When starvation falls upon us
Daylight told me he would be

Gone with cold words
Spoke among hers
Wretched in the tongue of their world
We're not of that world at all
We will never be

Wouldn't it be fine to stand
Behind the words we say in the best of times
Oh, and you and I know all too well
About the hell in paradise
Right here on Earth

Keep it, use it
Build it, move it
Planes can touch our time will prove it
Watch us fly as loud we can
Let her heartbeat change what I am now

Wouldn't it be fine to stand
Behind the words we say
In the best of times
Oh, and you and I know all too well
About the hell in paradise
Right here on Earth

    General CommentI think the writing credits for this song are wrong. These same names also credited for a song called "Life" performed by Ricky Martin.

    I see the song itself as hope for a marriage; not letting the future for this couple be determined by the past that seems to haunt one of them - a parents' divorce, maybe?

    Daylight told me he would be
    Gone with cold words
    Spoke among hers
    Wretched in the tongue of their world
    We're not of that world at all
    We will never be


    I could envision this song as a wedding processional for someone.

    Keep it, use it
    Build it, move it
    Planes can touch our time will prove it
    Watch us fly as loud we can
    Let her heartbeat change what I am now

    Wouldn't it be fine to stand
    Behind the words we say
    In the best of times
    Oh, and you and I know all too well
    About the hell in paradise
    Right here on Earth


    Beautiful.

    Okay. So it kind of ends on an odd tone, but it's just a valid observation of the realities of the life so many create for themselves, when they enter into this bond of matrimony without really understanding all its implications.
