I Want You To Live Lyrics - George Canyon

Review The Song (10)



When she got the news
The phone hit the floor
She fell to her knees,
And cried his name

He had just kissed her lips,
And both of the kids
Their lives will never be the same

The end of her hardest day
The only words she could say were,
I want you to live,
I want you to love,
I want to go back to the way it was,
To hear you say my name again,
I want to see your smile again
I want you to live

It takes all of her strength
sponsored links
To go through his things
It feels like she's holding him again
The letters he wrote, books that he'd read
And some of his shirts still had his scent
The picture in Florida
She holds to her heart and cries out loud

I want you to live,
I want you to love,
I want to go back to the way it was,
To hear you say my name again,
I want to see your smile again,

Lying awake in the middle of the night
Trying not to let the kids hear her cry
She prays for an answer, some little of sign
And closes her eyes
And swears she hears him say,

I want you to live,
I want you to love
I want you to go on and not give up
I want you to live,
I want you to try,
I want you to know that I'm alright

I want you to fall in love again
I want to see you smile again
And again,
I want you to live

Brother | Reviewer: Starr | 11/21/2007

I love this song.. It's really sad though.. Because I know this COULD happen to him. I like to think that he's strong enough that it won't though..:) Besides if something did happen to him.. he wouldn't want me to cry.. big brother would want me to smile..

I want you to go on and not give up
I want you to live,
I want you to try,
I want you to know that I'm alright

He told me that for as long as I can remember... And before he left he said "It doesn't matter what you think about how I am... I want you to KNOW that I'm ok.. If something does happen.. he isn't gone... he's happy.. Not the other way around..:)

I love this song.. it's sad because my older brother is in iraq... but I believe he'll be strong and he'll be okay. And I know that if something did happen to him.. he'd want me to smile anyway..
I want you to go on and not give up
I want you to live,
I want you to try,
I want you to know that I'm alright

He's been telling me that for as long as I can remember.. If something does happen to him.. don't think that he's gone.. think that he's happy.. better than the other way around.. :)



A gift. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/23/2007

This song is an amazing gift to all people grieving the loss of someone special. 3 years ago my best friend lost her dad and our entire community has been shattered but when we hear this song, it helps us to move on. We know that the one wish for all those that have passed on is that their loved ones that they left behind would continue to live their lives, continue to smile, laugh and love.
We will ALWAYS grieve, but the message in this song makes it easier.



Different perspective | Reviewer: anonymous | 10/3/2007

I just heard this song as it was playing and the chorus words are exactly what I feel.. the only difference is my marriage is falling apart ...in a way it's own death. These words are what I wish for ... the only difference is he's right here and alive. Hoping he will smile.. laugh... live again!



It felt like he was singing my mom's story | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/28/2007

I was just driving along listeneing to the radio and not quite listening when something made me tune in to the song. By the end of the song I was in my driveway and crying. It felt like he was telling about what happened to my family this past June. My dad died of a massive heart attack while out fishing by himself. He was expected back for supper, instead my mom got a visit from the police, saying they had 'found him in the water'. He was gone before he hit the water and had felt no pain. It has been a very difficult time these past weeks, but this song has made me happy, strange as it sounds. I believe thigns happen for a reason and so did this song and I wish I knew who the writer of it was so I could thank them. I am grateful this song is out there for others like me. THANK YOU!!!



I Love This Song | Reviewer: Brittany | 9/28/2007

I love this song, the first time i heard it, it made me cry and think about all the families whos loved ones are fighting in the war and the pain that their families must be going through :(



Love it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/26/2007

It is so touching. The first time I heard it I had tears in my eyes. It has been almost 2 years since my dad has died and I miss him soo much. It brings back memories.



I don't understand... | Reviewer: Cara | 8/29/2007

This song made me feel so depressed. I realise that a lot of people feel that this song is uplifting and inspirational, but to me, who's dad has just left for Kandahar, i feel that it reminds me of something that could happen that I would never want to happen. My dad means the world to me, and this song just keeps reminding me that he could be gone. And yes, it also reminds me to continue to live my life if that happens, but my life would be much better if he survives and also without the worry that this song causes.



I want you to live | Reviewer: Ashley | 8/8/2007

This is one of the best songs i have ever heard and it reminds me of my grandpa who past away a few weeks ago.



great song!! | Reviewer: Martha | 5/28/2007

This song touches me when I listen to it. It dosn't make me cry.
