I Want To Live On

For any Country or cause my life i would not give
And why should i since i want to live
In time for as long as i possibly can
And die in my sleep without pain as a very old man
Though time has left me feeling weary and looking bald and gray
And the clock on my life ever does tick away
Why should i wish to die since death i do fear
And every new dawn to it brings me more near
I know that from memory i will be quick to fade
Since out of acts of extreme bravery heroines and heroes are made
The great gift of life the only gift i possess
It is far more important than fame, wealth and success
And since the fact all humans are mortals and fact never lie
I want to live on why should i wish to die?
