Sage Lyrics

1. Dying to Live (Edgar Winter)

Why am I fighting to live if I’m just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see when there ain’t nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give when no one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live if I’m just living to die?

2. Man in the Mirror (Michael Jackson)

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

3. No, I Regret Nothing (Edith Piaf – English translation)

No, nothing at all,
No, I regret nothing
Because my life, because my joys
Today, I begin with you

4. If I Ain’t Got You (Alicia Keys)

Some people think that the physical things define what’s within
And I’ve been there before, and that life’s a bore
So full of the superficial

5. Turn! Turn! Turn! (The Byrds)

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

6. Together Again (Janet Jackson)

Everywhere I go, every smile I see
I know you are there smilin’ back at me
Dancin in moonlight I know you are free
‘Cause I can see your star shinin’ down on me

7. Reflections of My Life (Marmalade)

The world is
A bad place
A bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh, but I don’t want to die

8. Unconditional Love (Tupac Shakur)

In this game the lesson’s in your eyes to see
Though things change, the future’s still inside of me
We must remember that tomorrow comes after the dark
So you will always be in my heart, with unconditional love

9. We Are The World (U.S.A. for Africa)

There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

10. Lose Yourself (Eminem)

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

11. Just the Way You Are (Billy Joel)

Don’t go trying some new fashion
Don’t change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

12. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Elton John)

So goodbye yellow brick road
Where the dogs of society howl
You can’t plant me in your penthouse
I’m going back to my plough

13. Woman (John Lennon)

Woman, I can hardly express,
My mixed emotion at my thoughtlessness,
After all I’m forever in your debt

14. Return to Innocence (Enigma)

If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny

15. My Way (Frank Sinatra)

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I can chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

16. Audition (Emma Stone)

She lived in her liquor
And died with a flicker
I’ll always remember the flame

17. Killing Me Softly (Roberta Flack)

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on
Strumming my pain with his fingers

18. All Fired Up (Pat Benatar)

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an’ learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

19. I’ll Stand By You (The Pretenders)

When you’re standing at the cross roads,
And don’t know which path to choose,
Let me come along, ’cause even if you’re wrong,
I’ll stand by you.

20. Still the Same (Bob Seger)

You always won every time you placed a bet
You’re still damn good
No one’s gotten to you yet
Every time they were sure they had you caught
You were quicker than they thought
You’d just turn your back and walk

21. City of Stars (Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling)

To look in somebody’s eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send them reeling
A voice that says I’ll be here
And you’ll be alright
I don’t care if I know
Just where I will go
‘Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling

22. A Life Uncommon (Jewel)

And lend your voices only
To sounds of freedom
No longer lend your strength
To that which you wish
To be free from
Fill your lives
With love and bravery
And you shall lead
A life uncommon

23. Wild Heart of the Young (Karla Bonoff)

If I thought about all the loves I knew
I know they’d all fade except for you
And someday you’ll see how much you taught me
I loved you like I’ll never love another
With the wild heart of the young
But it took until now to uncover
Oh, if I’d only known it then
