For the July song challenge. I've never really done a song before, but plenty of poetry. Hopefully the tune in my head will carry across. The beat is kind of a slow country/western acoustical guitar.

It's only two verses with three refrains.
I'm not sure how lengthy a song should be.
Comments are always welcome. =)

================================================

I stay where I am, For as long as I can,
Some people ask me Why do I do I do it?
Why do I stay, when the times are rough
The money is tight and the job gets tough
Why do I stay, when the rewards seem so few?
Why do I try? what else could I do?

(Refrain....beat picks up for the refrain)
Love, I suppose.
Love is what I need
Love is what I give
Love is what I get
At the end of the day, what makes it all worth it?
Love, I suppose

(beat slows down again)
The years speed up and the fighting slows down
The job gets easier the more I do it
The key to survivin', along with not quittin'
Is one simple thing, and its all I'll ever need

(Refrain....beat picks up for the refrain)
Love, I suppose.
Love is what I need
Love is what I give
Love is what I get
At the end of the day, what makes it all worth it?
Love, I suppose

(Repeat Refrain....beat picks up for the refrain)
Love, I suppose.
Love is what I need
Love is what I give
Love is what I get
At the end of the day, what makes it all worth it?
Love, I suppose
