Life Is For The Intrepid

Life is for the intrepid
it has been said
This must be true
I wasn't one who always knew

I was timid and shy
afraid to speak my mind
was quick to cry
when people were unkind

guess I was blind
but now have opened my eyes to see
I can be all I was meant to be

The world has grown cold
no one to care for the old
they're out for riches and gold
you have to be bold

its a dog eat dog world they say
only the strong survive today
for Life is for the brave
with your own soul to save

I looked for a friendly face in the crowds
but all I could see were clouds
had to make my way in time
to struggle to have what's mine
you have to be brave today
there are those who would steal it all away

life is for the Intrepid is true till you are dead
it you want to be free and seek liberty
you must fight for what you believe
we must carry on and be strong

keep the one's we love close to us
Be audacious, but never heartless
Have love in your heart to give
and live and let live
love and let love
and give all you can give
