Dying To Live  Edgar Winter

You know I've h[G]eard it said there's b[D]eauty in disto[Em]rtion.  [C]
By some p[G]eople who've withd[D]rawn to find their h[Em]eads    [C]
Now they s[G]ay that there is h[D]umor in misfo[Em]rtune [C]
You know I wo[C]nder if they'll l[D]augh when I am d[G]ead


Why am I fi[C]ghting to l[G]ive if I 'm just l[Em]iving to fi[G]ght?
Why am I tr[C]ying to see[G] when there ain't [Em]nothing in s[D]ight?
Why am I tr[C]ying to gi[G]ve when no one g[Em]ives me a t[G]ry?
Why am I dy[C]ing to li[G]ve if I'm just li[Em]ving to di[G]e?

Hey, you know some pe[G]ople say that va[D]lues are subje[Em]ctive,  [C]
But they'[G]re just speaking w[D]ords that someone el[Em]se has s[C]aid.
And so they l[G]ive and fight and ki[D]ll with no obj[Em]ective. [C]
Sometimes it's ha[C]rd to tell the li[D]ving from the de[G]ad.


Why am I fi[C]ghting to l[G]ive if I 'm just l[Em]iving to fi[G]ght?
Why am I tr[C]ying to see[G] when there ain't [Em]nothing in s[D]ight?
Why am I tr[C]ying to gi[G]ve when no one g[Em]ives me a t[G]ry?
Why am I dy[C]ing to li[G]ve if I'm just li[Em]ving to di[G]e?

Yeah, you kno[G]w I used to weav[D]e my words into con[Em]fusion. [C]
And so I h[G]ope you'll underst[D]and me when I 'm thr[Em]ough    [C]
You know I us[G]ed to live my li[D]fe as an illu[Em]sion,   [C]
But reali[C]ty will ma[D]ke my dreams come t[G]rue.

So I'll keep fi[C]ghting to l[G]ive till there's no r[Em]eason to fi[G]ght
And I'll keep tr[C]ying to s[G]ee until the [Em]end is in si[D]ght
You know I'm tr[C]ying to gi[G]ve so c'mon g[Em]ive me a tr[G]y
You know I'[C]m dying t[G]o live until I'm [Em]ready to d[G]ie.
