We’re all born to die…he said
we’re all born to die.
We’re not born to live…he screamed
we’re not born to live!
But live we shall until we die
and live we shall until that time
But we’re not born to live…proclaimed
he who’d had his time.
We’re all born to live…she said
we’re all born to live
and to another life we’ll give…she said
and another then shall live
and when death has gripped then …she said
when death has asked its toll
then we’ll have lived a life…she said
a life that had grown old.
We’re all born to die…he cried
and the tears ran from his eyes
we’re all born to live…she smiled
as she took from him his life.
