Marillion – Live Forever lyrics

(music: marillion lyrics: steve hogarth)

Well I gave up cocaine and I gave up smack
I gave up drinking alcohol and smoking crack
I gave up living on the never never
But I can't give up believing that I'm going to live forever

Well I gave up computer games, I gave up meat
I gave up watching tv in my favourite seat
I gave up wearing fur and I gave up wearing leather
But I can't give up believing that I'm going to live forever

Give it up, give it up
Don't you know you've got to lose?
The desires you were born with
And your talent to abuse
Give it up, give it up
There's a better life to live
Give it up, give it up
Give it all you've got to give

Well I gave up sugar and I gave up spice
I gave up everything that feels allright
Cause I feel that these addictions are a chain you have to sever
I'm addicted to believing that I'm going to live forever
