Joe Cocker

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you now 
You got someone to blame 
You say...

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night 
One love
We get to share it
 Leaves you baby if you 
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth 
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without 

Well it's...
Too late
 Tonight 
To drag the past out into the light 
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to 
 Carry each other  Carry each other 
One...

Have you come here for forgiveness 
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus 
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing 
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we 
Hurt each other 
Then we do it again 

You say
Love is a temple 
Love a higher law
Love is a temple 
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter 
But then you make me crawl 
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood 
One life
You got to do what you should 
One life
With each other  Sisters  Brothers 
One life
But we're not the same
We get to 
 Carry each other  Carry each other 
One...life
One
