"I'd die for you," that's easy to say We have a list of people that we would take A bullet for them, a bullet for you A bullet for everybody in this room But I don't seem to see many bullets coming through See many bullets coming through Metaphorically, I'm the man But literally, I don't know what I'd do "I'd live for you, " and that's hard to do Even harder to say when you know it's not true Even harder to write when you know that tonight There were people back home who tried talking to you But then you ignored them still All these questions they're for real like Who would you live for? Who would you die for? And would you ever ****?
the italicized is my favorite section and, I think, the most important. Oftentimes we think that theoretically we're great people but our actions, both big and small, don't match up- or we're made to believe we're horrible people but our actions are the actions of a decent human being and a good friend. However, no matter what we think we'd do in these grand situations, what matters is the decisions we actually make.
