[Verse 1]
I give you everything, everything you need
All that I have, everything you see
I carry it all with me

This is your life
These are your days
So take them and run while you can
While you've still got time

[Verse 2]
The colour of your eyes, the feeling of your skin
The beating of your heart, the soul within you
Love can never be parted

This is your life
These are your days (Your days)
So make them the best you can
While you've still got time
While you've still got time

[Verse 3]
Over the words you said, or have never spoken
The days we had, more than I could ever have wanted

This is your life
These are your days (Your days)
So make them the best while you can
While you've still got time
While you've still got time

You're all I've got left to live for, time
You can't take it all with you, time
It's all I've got left to live for
