Something that I hunger for, something you deny
You say I'm bad for you and, baby, so do I
Don't you know that all you gotta do
You could be a lover and, baby, this is

This is your life, don't break it, it's who you do it for
It's the pain and pleasure
This is your life, temptation, a victim of the law
We can talk about it, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
This is your life, this is your life

If you try to help someone, you get the evil eye
You say you suffocate, well, baby, so do I
Don't you know that all you gotta do
You could be a lover and, baby, this is

This is your life, don't hide it, don't try to mystify
How soft the flesh is
This is your life, get even, even if you die
Don't run for cover, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

This is your life, temptation, that's who you do it for
It's the pain and the pleasure
This is your life, temptation, a victim of the law
We can talk about it, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
This is your life

All work and no play, I won't survive
Late at night I need your company
What about me, what about you
This is your life

Define ourselves as something in space
Not enough for everyone, everyone
And as we speak, the enemy is the mind
I see the future coming for you

All the lonely days and the lonely nights
You've been searching for a love so right
It's a tragedy, just stayin' alive, stayin' alive
And all that

Jive talking, what you doing on your back
Jive talking, more rap, less crap
Times are bad, money is tight
Ain't too much heaven on a Saturday night

Tell me now how deep is your love
The heart is soft but the brain is tough
The enemy is the mind, don't let the future fall apart
This is my world too, just run to me

If you ever wanna mend that broken heart
I have seen those nights on Broadway too
Blaming it all, what about you
This is your life

This is your life, don't break it, it's who you do it for
It's the pain and pleasure
This is your life, don't hide it, don't try to mystify
How soft the flesh is

This is your life, temptation
This is your life
