Me, I'm just a singer, though I may be well-known
The truth is I'd be nothing without the power of a song
I've been blessed with fame and fortune, oh but in the end
A song's what I wish I could've been

Chorus
A song lives forever and never ever dies
Sings enemies together and touches so many lives
Words and melody will always be long after we're gone...
Oh, how I wish I could live the life of a song

I could mend the broke and wounded, I could prove that love is real
And take someone from China to a Carolina cotton field
I could comfort every soldier, hum all the homeless home
I could change the world if I was just a song

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental

There's an end for me, it's my destiny
But this song will carry on... and it's just three minutes long
Oh, how I wish I could live the life of a song
Oh, how I wish I could live the life of a song
