Time is the only thing certain
When you're staring down your son
And your days will not be forgotten
If you live 'em as they come
When nobody wanna be just your best friend
Without competition, with nothing to hide
Watching your back doubles up your vision
Make no decisions with unsteady eyes
This world is not for me, my love
It's all for you, yeah
This world was never free for me
But it will be for you, listen true
When you fall get up again
I know that life might be hard to live
But it's not for me, my love
It's all for you
I tried to vanish into the shadows
I tried to get away from it all
I couldn't manage, imagine this life
With nothing to leave you at all, no
Then somebody picked me up with the quickness
Wrapped me in blankets of patience and love
Brought me back from a broken existence
I fell no resistance to rising above
This world is not for me, my love
It's all for you, I'll tell you true
This world was never free for me
But it will be for you, that's what I'll do
If you fall get up again
I know that life might be hard to live
But it's not for me anymore
It's all for you, yeah
You know it's not for me, oh no, no
Not for me, oh no, no
I know it's not for me, my love
It's just for you
No one wanna be a prisoner
In their home, ooh no, no. no
So you will never be living
One day on your own
This world is not for me, my love
I did it all for you
When I look back I wanna be sure
That I did it true, yeah
If you fall get up again
I know this life might be hard to live
So when you get some love you should give it back
It will come right back to you
This world is not for me, my love
It's all for you, yeah
No, no, not for me, oh no, no
This is not for me, oh no, no
This is not for me, oh no, no
This is not for me, oh no, no
And when you fall get up one more time
This life is yours for the taking, not mine
Don't be afraid where you came from
Oh man, you'll take it somewhere new
This world is not for me, my love
All for you
I know it's hard for you
If you fall get up again
I know that life can be hard to live
If you got love you should give love
Get back, love, take it home with you
It's not for me, my love
It's just for you
