"Life Worth Livin'" as written by and Mike Heidorn Jay Farrar....
This song is sung for anyone that's listening
This song is for the broken-spirited man
This song is for anyone left standing
After the strain of a slow, sad end

It seems everybody wants what someone else has
There's sorrow enough for all
Just go in any bar and ask
With a beer in each hand and a smile in between
All around's a world grown mean

We've all had our ups and downs
It's been mostly down around here
Now this whole damn mess is becoming quite clear

Looks like we're all looking for a life worth livin'
That's why we drink ourselves to sleep
Yeah, we're all looking for a life worth livin'
That's why we pray for our souls to keep

There's nothing left now but broken pieces
Of one man's broken will to care
And in the end before all is said and done
How many others might follow him there?

This song is sung for anyone that's listening
This song is for the broken-spirited man
This song is for anyone left standing
After the strain of a slow, sad end

Midnight is comin' 'round
Still mostly down around here
Now this whole damn mess is becoming quite clear

    General CommentCan't believe no one else loves this song... so rare that a set of lyrics can so accurately describe what a person is feeling. This is the best song on No Depression.

    General CommentI love this song, too. "With a beer in each hand and a smile in between"--could possibly be one of the greatest song lines ever written. As far, as meaning, it's pretty self-explanatory, but encapsulates a certain feeling perfectly.
