Something to Live For by Billy Strayhorn - arranged by Elaine Dame and Jim Cox


I want something to live for
I want someone to make my life an adventurous dream
Oh, what wouldn't I give for
Someone to take my life and make it seem
Gay as they say it ought to be
Oh, why can't I have love like that brought to me?

My eye is watching the noon crowd
Is searching the promenade seeking a clue
To the one who will someday be my
Something to live for.


from You're My Thrill, released December 1, 2014
