Live For Life Lyrics

Artist: Tony Bennett

Live For Life
Tony Bennett
Written by Norman Gimbel and Francis Albert Lai

This version did not chart but
In 1967 Jack Jones took it to # 99
Title song from the film starring Yves Montand and Candice Bergen which was a follow-up to
director Claude Lelouche's "A Man and A woman"

Come with me, my love, and seize this day and live it, live it fully, live it fast
Never thinking once about tomorrow till tomorrow's been and gone and past
We'll pour the wine and fill the cup of joy and drink a drink as if it were the last
Live, just live for life

In Paree today and Amsterdam tomorrow, sixty minutes through the skies
Fly with me to see the setting summer sun and stay with me to see it rise
Then say to those who say "to live this way is mad", then mad we'd rather be than wise
Live, just live for life

If you let me I will lead you
Through the myst'ry and wonder
Of a world you've never known before
Share the splendors to be shared
Magic places to explore
There the dangers to be dared
Life is all of this and more
This and more

Yesterday's a mem'ry gone for good forever while tomorrow is a guess
What is real is what is here and now, the here and now is all that we possess
So take my hand and we will taste the moment if for just the moment's happiness
Live, just live for life

Live, just live for life
Live, just live for life
Live, just live for life

Ferranti & Teicher did a rendition of this great tune also. It does take me back in time...

This lyrics, as sung by Johnny Mathis, is missing the last part...

Wasn't there a version with beautiful strings and a female vocal that was related to the winter olympics (Grenoble)?

Percy Faith, probably.

I have the LP rendition by Ferranti & Teicher,It is, in my opinion the best. It really captures the spirit of Live for Life.

On the CD "COLLAGE" by Karrin Allyson
the last cut is "live For Life." This is a great rendition with vocals and small combo. Emotionally stirring.

I´d like to get lyrics of that song sung by Johnny Mathis. Guess it´s the full version.

Yes, the rendition by Karrin Allyson is the best I've ever heard. This "Collage" album is her finest so far. She has improved with each album and now has reached 'classic' status.

This song, in the sixties, was first introduced by Jack Jones. It has impressed me by the clever use of "aliteração" - in portuguese means repetition of similar sounds. See the last part: Yesterday's a mem...
FOR GOOD FOREVER...WHAT IS REAL IS WHAT IS HERE...taste the moment IF FOR just a moment's happiness...
