Lifes too short - by Sam Oates

Hold me close,
Don?t let me go,
that?s what you said,
And now I know.

That I?????.. Won?t stop????.
Feeling this way
And I?????.. Won?t stop????.
Feeling this great.
Cos life?s to short to give upon,
Life?s to short but just hold on,

I?m like a river through the mountain here?s my waterfall,
I?m like a rock down river as I crumble and crawl.
I?m like a man on the edge who gambles it all,
I?m like a bird flying high who?s seen the end.

You?ve used me know,
And tossed me away,
Out of you life,
Like a piece of waste.

But I?????.. Won?t stop????.
Feeling this way
And I?????.. Won?t stop????.
Feeling this great.
Cos life?s to short to give upon,
Life?s to short but just hold on,

I?m like a river through the mountain here?s my waterfall,
I?m like a rock down river as I crumble and crawl.
I?m like a man on the edge who gambles it all,
I?m like a bird flying high who?s seen the end.
I?m like a river through the mountain here?s my waterfall,
I?m like a rock down river as I crumble and crawl.
I?m like a man on the edge who gambles it all,
I?m like a bird flying high who?s seen the end.

Cos life?s to short to give upon,
Life?s to short but just hold on,

I like the lyrics, very optimistic towards life and living in general... I'm also digging the part after the chorus .. the continued use of the beginning of the "I'm like a" lines is quite powerfull. Good Job.

In conclusion, I'm gay.
