Wrote this for one of my composers. His title and subject —which makes it easier for me to compose a lyric. CMA

Love To Live, Live To Love
Music by Darren McClure, lyrics by Charles M Anderson
___________Verse/Chorus

Guitar intro: (00:03-00:26)

Verse 1: (00:27-00:52)
(00:27-00:29) I don’t know why
(00:30-00:32) They whisper all around us
(00:33-00:35) They snicker and confound us
(00:36-00:38) If they could understand
(00:40-00:42) We are done with
(00:42-00:45) The gossip and off humor
(00:46-00:48) The smiles and small town rumors
(00:48-00:51) We need to go our way

Pre-Chorus: (00:53-01:04)
(00:53-00:58) We won’t have to worry anymore
(00:59-01:04) We’ll pack our bags, head on out the door

Chorus: (01:05-01:40)
(01:05-01:08) If we love to live, live to love
01:08-01:11) Take our cues from above
(01:12-01:16) And flee to where we’re no longer bound, I know we can
(01:17-01:20) Leave behind this one horse town
(01:20-01:23) Leave behind the pain and sorrow
(01:24-01:28) As we face a new tomorrow, I know
(01:29-01:34) We’ll take to flight to the sky like a pair of doves
(01:35-01:40) We can love to live, live to love

(Musical break)

Verse 2: (00:27-00:52)
(00:27-00:29) They don’t know us
(00:30-00:32) Though we’ve lived here all our lives
(00:33-00:35) Though the knives are in their eyes
(00:36-00:38) But they can’t see our plan
(00:40-00:42) Live our lives free
(00:42-00:45) Of prejudice and small minds
(00:46-00:48) Their shuttered hearts that confine
(00:48-00:51) We’re gonna break away

Pre-Chorus: (00:53-01:04)
(00:53-00:58) Collect our stuff, load our pickup truck
(00:59-01:04) We’ve had enough, wish ‘em all good luck

Chorus: (01:05-01:40)
(01:05-01:08) If we love to live, live to love
01:08-01:11) Take our cues from above
(01:12-01:16) And flee to where we’re no longer bound, I know we can
(01:17-01:20) Leave behind this one horse town
(01:20-01:23) Leave behind the pain and sorrow
(01:24-01:28) As we face a new tomorrow, I know
(01:29-01:34) We’ll take our flight to the sky like a pair of doves
(01:35-01:40) We can love to live, live to love

Post Chorus: (01:44-01:48)
(01:44-01:46) Love to live, live to love

Outro: (01:49-02:22)
Love to live, live to love (repeatedly, fading)
