Can I keep it up?
Can I keep it down?
Can I live without dying?
Can I dance all around?


I don’t know
I spend my days
In a hurry
Filled with trouble
Filled with worry


I don’t know
If I know how to live
If I know how to try
If I know how to die


But one thing’s for sure
If I can’t learn
How to give
Life becomes nothing
But a sieve


I don’t know
How to make my life complete
When strain and strife
Are so replete
