Daryl Hall & John Oates – Survive lyrics

Whatever happened to you

The one that was so beautiful

I could count on you to make my life a little brighter

I always thought you were built to last

But I never saw anything fall apart so fast

You were born in freedom

To be a slave to your inhibitions

Inventing excuses and proving the right to back up your condition

But a soul like that aint tied too tight

And it's liable to scatter all over the night

Seasons change

Some people get old and die

Great cities are built up and torn down

But I see you're still alive

Seasons change

Some people get old and die

Great cities are built up and torn down

So how could you survive

I'm not asking for much

Only for time to stop

And history to go unrecorded

And people not to be people

People not to be people

People not to be people

People not to be people not to b
