Sammy Hagar – Give To Live

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Give/Get/Take/Receive/Send

From his 1987 album, I Never Said Goodbye. The song reached #23 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart on August 28, 1987.

Give To Live

Ooo I can see that you’ve got fire in your eyes
And pain inside your heart
So many things have come
And torn your world apart
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
If you want love
If you want love
You’ve got to give a little
If you want love
If you want faith
You just believe a little
If you want love
If you want peace
Turn your cheek a little
Oh you’ve got to give
You’ve got to give
You’ve got to give to live
An empty hand reaching out for someone
An empty heart takes so little to fill
It’s so much easier to push instead of pull
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
If you want love
If you want love
You’ve got to give a little
If you want love
If you want faith
You just believe a little
If you want love
If you want peace
Turn your cheek a little
Oh you’ve got to give
You’ve got to give
You’ve got to give to live
Each man’s a country in his own right
Oh everybody needs a friend
One friend one God one country
No man can defend
Yeah
I believe in faith and destination
But so much of that ties in our own hands
But if you know what you want
Just go on out and get it
Oh baby, baby just don’t give up no, no
Ah don’t give up, yeah, yeah
