I've been looking at people and how they change with the times
And lately all I've been seeing are people
Throwing love away and losing their minds

Verse 2:
Maybe it's me who's gone crazy, Cause I can't understand why
All these lovers keep hurting each other,
When good love is so hard to come by

Chorus
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?

Verse 3:
I've been listening 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 wanted to believe

Chorus

I see love hungry people tryin' their best to survive,
When in their hands is a dying romance,
If 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?

    Chorus should read: So what's the glory in LEAVIN; also 4th verse should read: "I see love hungry people tryin' their best to survive when right there in their hands is a dying romance and they're not even trying to keep it alive".

    When life was so tough, this song kept me going. I wanted someone just to love me and thought i had it... Long road passed and i divorced. What's forever for? Hurt? No... Its the journey of life but this song makes me think.

    It makes no sense to throw away someone who truly loves you. There will never be a good reason to destroy true love.

    That people need love and that too many people give up on love and each other and it is hurting our society.
