Keep yourself alive (live at the Rainbow) - Lyrics

Take off
I was told a million times
Of all the troubles in my way
Tried to grow a little wiser
Little better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I'd still be where I started
Bread and butter for a smile
Well I sold a million mirrors
In a shopping alley way
But I never saw my face
In any window any day
Now they say your folks are telling you
Be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied
Stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
It'll take you all your time and money
To keep me satisfied

Well I've loved a million women
In a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners
Brought to me on silver trays
Give me everything I need
To feed my body and my soul
And I'll grow a little bigger
Maybe that can be my goal
I was told a million times
Of all the people in my way
How I had to keep on trying
And get better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I'd still be where I started
Same as when I started

Keep yourself alive, come on
Keep yourself alive
It'll take you all your time and money
Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
It'll take you all your time and money
Honey, you'll survive

Do you think you're better every day?
No, I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave

Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Come on, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
