I thought love was more or less a giving thing. Seems the more I gave, the less I got.
Some are born who never need them, Others still who never read them, signs.
Pride is the chief cause in the decline in the number of husbands and wives.
`I am,` I said To no one there, And no one heard at all.
Don`t need to say please to no man for a happy tune.
This is my job. Someone much greater than me gave me that job. He said, `You, you with that stupid look on your face - go out and sing until I tell you to stop.` I haven`t heard the word yet so I`m just going to keep doing it.
I already have `Sweet Caroline.` Most of these people haven`t heard `Hell Yeah` or `Man of God,` but I see them and they`re listening, and that`s really all I want.
Somehow it`s dawning on me that I`m a more mature individual and I`m not a kid writing `Cherry, Cherry` anymore.
I want to know what marathon runners do. Because I do the same thing. I run a two-hour marathon every time onstage. So I have my electrolytes kept at a certain level, and I do my carb-loading after the shows for the next night.
I never expected that I would be doing this for as long as I`ve been doing it. So looking back and seeing that it`s been over 40 years since the first hits makes you think, `Is there a time that you stop?` But I don`t think I`m ever going to stop. It`s the only challenge I have left in my life.
I`m not there to entertain people. We`re there to do something together.
"It`s very difficult for me to say `I love you` but to sing `I love you` for me is easier."
