Lyrics

SO DO I VIE

Not every eager arrow
Let loose makes mark

Most tumble sadly downward
Some close but off

So do I vie for you, my love
So do I vie for you, my love

We living are the winners
First sperm to egg

A contest many entered
One swam home best

So do I vie for you, my love
So do I vie for you, my love

To make our planet pregnant
Stars fall to Earth

Few touch the terra firma
Most die in flame

So do I vie for you, my love
So do I vie for you, my love
