Lift

I have to admit, I like my music and I often like to pay attention to the lyrics in certain (if not most) songs. The last few months have been relatively trying on me and this song came on the radio. It’s not a new song, it’s probably a couple of years old now. There are many good lines in it, but this bridge has to be my favourite part:

Lift yourself up above all the hurt, Don’t give in
Wipe your eyes and remember you’re better than this
Let them know that they took their best shot and they missed
C’mon and lift

Song for Guy

Seriously, what are the words to this song?

I thought I knew them for many a year… Well, I had narrowed it down to two choices (the first in the list), but finally deciding to search tonight brings many more choices…. So now I REALLY just don’t know anymore.

Which ones are right?

You decide….

Life…
is a terrible thing…
is a terrible thing…
is a terrible thing…

Life…
is a jungle of fear…
is a jungle of fear…
is a jungle of fear…

Life…
isn’t everything…
isn’t everything…
isn’t everything…

Life…
is a tentative thing…
is a tentative thing…
is a tentative thing…

Life…
Isn’t death everything…
Isn’t death everything…
Isn’t death everything…

I would seriously like peoples comments on this, especially comments related to original references.

I have many inspirational singer/song-writers….
