I was sad and lonely
You became my only reason for stayin' alive
And I was at the end of my rope
Getting drunk and smokin' dope
You gave me that thing called hope
And a reason for stayin' alive

And I was in my greatest
When you saw me latest
You gave me a reason for stayin' alive

If only for an evening
And then pretty soon you're leaving
You take with you my reason for stayin' alive

May your fields grow daffodils
Let me be your happy peace
Honey, you gave me a reason for stayin' alive
And when I'm old and dyin'
Will you be there cryin'?
Givin' me another reason for stayin' alive

If only for tomorrow
Then you fly away like a sparrow
May I kindly borrow a reason for stayin' alive?
I don't need anyone
