Vic Taylor – For The Life Of Me lyrics

How can there be a song without the music?
How can there be a wave without the sea?
The lightning needs the thunder as a speaking voice
And i must have you for the life of me

How can there be a baby with no crying?
A future with no past can never be
A humming bird can't live unless its free to fly
And I must have you for the life of me

I know that sunshine follows rain
I know that pleasure follows pain
And I know that I must have you somehow
Every ship waits for the crew
And every rose waits for the dew
But I need you right now

How can there be an end with no beginning?
So run to me
I'm waiting helplessly
And break these shackles of impatience
Oh, make me live
And I must have you for the life of me
