Live and Let Die Lyrics

Play "Live and Let Die"
on Amazon Music

When you were young
and your heart was an open book
You used to say live and let live
you know you did
you know you did
you know you did
But if this ever changin' world
in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry
Say live and let...

    Its a song about how good things come and go and you just have to expect that move on

    When you are young you think you can just strive for good life without hurting other peoples chances to do the same.

    But as you grow older, you realise that in reality (due to limited amount of resources etc) what you gain is always away from other people and you are in fact competing for things. For example if one gets a job that means he/she got it OVER all the other people that didn't get so lucky.

    So no, this song is not about killing. The message is that in order to get where you want, you have to stop feeling bad for the other people that tried and failed and be happy for your own success.
