  • 04:49 Story Lyrics
    Love Will Keep Us Alive

    LOVE WILL KEEP US ALIVE

    I was standing
    All alone against the world outside
    You were searching
    For a place to hide

    Lost and lonely
    Now you've given me the will to survive
    When we're hungry, love will keep us alive

    Don't you worry
    Sometimes you've just gotta let it ride
    The world is changing
    Right before your eyes
    Now I've found you
    There's no more emptiness inside
    When we're hungry, love will keep us alive

    I would die for you
    Climb the highest mountain
    Baby, there's nothing I wouldn't do

    I was standing
    All alone against the world outside
    You were searching
    For a place to hide
    Lost and lonely
    Now you've given me the will to survive
    When we're hungry, love will keep us alive
    When we're hungry, love will keep us alive
    When we're hungry, love will keep us alive
