B.B. King - I Like To Live The Love Lyrics




My song is a serious matter
It reflects what I feel
If I say I love you, I mean it
'Cause in my song
Every line is for real

Every man or woman
Enjoys going home
To a peaceful situation
To give love and receive love
Without any complications

Whether my tune is short or long
Whether my lyrics are weak or strong

I like to live the love
That I sing about in my song
I like to live the love
That I sing about in my song

Music is love
And my love is music
In perfect harmony
So when I sing
I have sung all about
The love of you and me

I never got angry with my guitar
'Cause when I strike a chord
It gives me what I wanna hear
So I'm finding out that
We are quite like my song together, my dear

Outside answers
Should always be forbidden
Problems should be solved
And never hidden

I like to live the love
That I sing about in my song
I like to live the love
That I sing about in my song

    Yes, love is worth singing about in a song. Especially as long as you love yourself and those around you will love you back. That means in order one to receive love, one has to give love.

  4. Mark Upton

    True Blues from the hair to the shoes....... rest in power BB. I just hate that I was so young and never got to see this legend in person.
