I've been lookin' at people
And how they change with the times
And lately, all I've been seein' are people
Throwin' love away and losing their minds

Maybe it's me who's gone crazy
'Cause I can't understand why
All these lovers keep hurtin' each other
When love is so hard to come by

So what's the glory in living?
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore?
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what's forever for?

I've been listenin' to people
And they say love is the key
And it's not my way to let them lead me astray
It's only that I want to believe

I see love hungry people
Tryin' their best to survive
While in their hands is a dying romance
And they're not even tryin' to keep it alive

So what's the glory in living?
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore?
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what's forever for?

So what's the glory in living?
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore?
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what's forever for?
