Adore

  • Lyrics
  • If only I didn't want the world
    I wouldn't make you feel so sad
    I'm sure my shame would be gone
    Is it human to adore life?

    If only I'd hidden my lust
    And starved a little bit more
    If only I didn't ask for more
    Is it human to adore life?

    I adore life

    If only I'd lived beyond regret
    I wouldn't feel guilt for what I take
    Is it human to ask for more?
    Is it human to adore life?

    I know evil when I see it
    I know good and I just do it
    If I hadn't been so starved
    Is it human to adore life?

    I understand the urgency of life
    In the distance there is truth which cuts like a knife
    Maybe I will die maybe tomorrow so I need to say

    I adore life

    If only I had been more shy
    And hid every tear I cried
    If only I didn't wish to die
    Is it human to adore life?

    If only I didn't care so much
    For the feel of your cold, cold touch
    In every bed I leave behind
    Is it human to adore life?

    I understand the urgency of life
    In the distance there is truth which cuts like a knife
    Maybe I will die maybe tomorrow so I need to say

    I adore life

    I adore life
    Do you adore life?Writer/s: CAMILLE BERTHOMIER, YOLANDER HASSAN AYSE, GERALDINE MILTON FAY, GEMMA LOUISE THOMPSON
