don’t end your life for money, it’s not real,
though you have begged and borrowed, and you were just about to steal,
it’s only made-up numbers with false power and appeal,
don’t end your life for money, it’s not real..

don’t end your life for love, it’s everywhere,
as common as the water and as plentiful as air,
though your heart may be broken, please do not despair,
don’t end your life for love, it’s everywhere..
+++ his family boxed and hauled his things away,
+++ & that apartment’s still empty today,
+++ 3 collection letters came in Monday’s mail,
+++ but those are bills he doesn’t have to pay..

don’t end your life for sorrow, it will pass,
sadness is as constant as the rustling of the grass,
& when your glass seems empty, it’s still one hell of a glass,
don’t end your life for sorrow, it will pass..
+++ his family threw most of his stuff away,
+++ & that apartment’s still empty today,
+++ 3 parking tickets on his windshield, it’s easy now to say:
+++ I guess he never planned to pay them anyway..

so don’t end your life for money, it’s a lie,
not for love, there’s love enough to fill a desert sky,
and not for sorrow, sorrow’s just a shadow passing by,
don’t end your life for love before you have to die…
