LyricsEdit

It used to feel like a fairy tale
Now it seems we were just pretending
We'd fix our world
Then on our way to a happy ending

Then it turned out life
Was far less like a bedtime story
Than a tragedy
With no big reveal of the hero's glory

And it seems we weren't prepared
For a game that wasn't fair

Do we just go home?
Can we follow through?
When all hope is gone,
There is one thing we can do

Let's just live!
Day by day and not be conquered by our sorrows
The past can't hold us down
We must break free
Inside we're torn apart
But time will mend our hearts
Move onward not there yet
So let's just live![3]

Can we get back to a happy place?
We've suffered so much pain and sorrow
After yesterday is there any way
We can trust tomorrow?
Will we go through life
Filled with strife like it's torn and tattered
Can we keep this up
When we all know that every hope has shattered?

And the lesson isn't new
That some dreams just can't come true

When it finally falls
And the battle's through
When our faith is gone
And there's nothing left to lose

Let's just live
Day by day and not be conquered by our sorrows
The past can't hold us down
We must break free
Inside we're torn apart
But time will mend our hearts
Move onward not there yet so let's just live

When it feels like there's nothing
Worth living for
Everything is broken
The light's not there anymore
And the story
Takes an unexpected turn
A friend is suddenly gone
We can cry our lives away
But if they were here they'd say
Go forward you must keep moving on

Let's just live
Just one day let's forget our problems
Let's fall in love with life
And just be free
The sun will never fade
The night won't steal our day
Let's laugh and dance and love and let's just live


TriviaEdit

  • Jeff Williams wrote the original concept for "Let's Just Live" during Volume 2 to accompany the Beacon Dance story arc, but the song was denied until Williams pitched it for the Volume 4 Opening.[4]
  • The first letters of the words "Move onward, not there yet" spell out "Monty".
    • Jeff Williams held a contest for fans to discover this Easter egg and try to be the first to contact him about it. The reward was a copy of the Volume 4 Soundtrack CD.[5] The winner was Sean Stevens, which was announced on February 28, 2017.[6]
