Keep goin'
Live 4 love...

30,000 feet and still counting (Live 4 love)
The attack on my plane is steadily mounting (Live 4 love)
Feel like I could die from the heart-a-pounding (Live 4 love)
How can I live 4 love?

Calling live 4 love, live 4 love
Calling live 4 love, ooh, live 4 love

Kicked out of my home at 17 (Live 4 love)
And bounced back and forth like flick on a screen (Live 4 love)
Don't nobody know the trouble I've seen (Live 4 love)
How can I live 4 love?

I'm calling live 4 love, ooh, live 4 love
Calling live 4 love, ooh, live 4 love
Live 4 love
Live 4 love, live 4 love, live

My mission, so they said, was just 2 drop the bombs
Don't think about the families, the babies or the moms
Just like I got no conscience, just like I got no qualms
Just like I don't live 4 love
Live 4 love

So here my target is approaching
The angel on my shoulder starts coaching
Is it the angel of death?
Haaaa, I take a deep breath
How can I die, how can I die, how can I die 4 love?

Maybe I was better off staying n school (Live 4 love)
But everybody said flying planes was cool (Live 4 love)
It's so easy 2 say when they're goin' thru (Live 4 love)
How can I live 4 love? (Live 4 love)

I'm calling live 4 love, live 4 love
I'm calling live 4 love, ooh, live 4 love
Livin' 4 love, livin' 4 love, livin' 4 love (Love)
Livin' 4 love, livin' 4 love, livin' 4 love (Love)
Live 4 love, live 4 love

Live 4 love, live 4 love
Calling live 4 love, 4 love, live 4 love

Damn! I got hit, but I could still complete the mission (Live 4 love)
I flash upon my own father long ago wishin' (Live 4 love)
B4 he died that I would always try, always try 2 live 4 love
2day I'm n another place, I have another face
My name has been changed 2 protect my new race
The choice U make is vital
So at the end of my recital I say U got 2 live 4 love

Live 4 love
Steady, steady (Live, live)
Live 4 love (Live, live)
Live 4 love
