Surviving The Life - Neil Diamond

Words and Music by Neil Diamond

Surviving the life, got some highs, got some lows,
but the wise man, he knows what it's really about.
When you're doin' without, surviving the life.

Providing the soul, it ain't easy to do
when you got to get through any way that you can.
Join the fam'ly of man providing the soul.

Pass the plate that serves it,
ev'ry heart deserves it; you and me, we do.
Life ain't easy, but it ain't that bad.
Sing the song that tells it, praise the man that sells it;
you're alive, you might as well be glad.

Revealing the heart, you know that some people try
but it's hard to get by without giving a thing.
You only get what you bring, revealing the heart.

Pass the plate that serves it,
ev'ry heart deserves it'; you and me, we do.
Life ain't easy, but it ain't that bad.
Sing the song that tell it, praise the man that sells it;
you're alive, you might as well be glad.

Providing the soul, revealing the heart, surviving the life.
