This Is Your Life

 Something that I hunger for
 Something you deny
 You say I'm bad for you
 And baby so do I
 Don't you know that all you gotta do
 You could be a lover
 And baby this is
 This is your life
 Don't break it
 It's who you do it for
 It's the pain and pleasure
 This is your life
 Temptation
 A victim of the law
 We can talk about it
 Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
 This is your life
 This is your life
 If you try to help someone
 You get the evil eye
 You say you suffocate
 Well baby so do I
 Don't you know that all you gotta do
 You could be a lover
 And baby this is
 This is your life
 Don't hide it
 Don't try to mystify
 How soft the flesh is
 This is your life
 Get even, even if you die
 Don't run for cover
 Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
 This is your life
 Temptation
 That's who you do it for
 It's the pain and the pleasure
 This is your life
 Temptation
 A victim of the law
 We can talk about it
 Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
 This is your life
 Define ourselves
 As something in space
 Not enough for everyone
 Everyone and as we speak
 The enemy is the mind
 I see the future coming for you
 All the lonely days and the lonely nights
 You've been searching for a love so right
 It's a tragedy just stayin' alive
 Stayin' alive
 And all that
 Jive talking
 What you doing on your back
 Jive talking
 More rap less crap
 Times are bad, money is tight
 Ain't too much heaven on
 A Saturday night
 Tell me now how deep is your love
 The heart is soft
 But the brain is tough
 The enemy is the mind
 Don't let the future fall apart
 This is my world too, just run to me
 If you ever wanna mend that broken heart
 I have seen those nights on Broadway too
 Blaming it all
 What about you
 This is your life
 This is your life
 Don't hide it
 Don't try to mystify
 How soft the flesh is
 This is your life
 It's who you do it for
 It's the pain and pleasure
 This is your life
 Temptation
 This is your life
