"A Reason to Live" is a fan song by the internet artist JT Music (formerly known as JT Machinima) for the video game The Last of Us. The song comes from the perspective of Joel and how he'll do anything to ensure his and Ellie's survival. Joel even goes on to say how he values Ellie's safety even more than his own despite normally being indifferent at best to others.

LyricsEdit

Take a deep breath then let go
Of the life that you had known
On the first step out that door, you've started to walk down one dark road
Infection across the globe
Don't lose a grip on that hope
Think fast or you won't last long
Even when you're grown up you don't stop growing
Crazy demented faces
Nature is making changes
Ain't nothing but traces of civilization left in these forsaken places
Putting all I got at stake and praying to God it's not all wasted
Trust me you never wanna wake up
If you don't have a dream worth chasing

Our time is running out
And we got nothing else
The only thing that keeps us human is each other now
Thought I could stick it out
When I was by myself
But you have given me a reason not to shut you out
There's a fire inside her
And it's made her a fighter
I will let the world burn if it means I'll survive
But the thing I'll put first is the girl by my side

Lost one too many good friends
Can't even keep track of 'em
Swept out like dust in the wind
Looks like you're the last of 'em
Even when you've had enough
I'm always gonna be there to back you up
And I'll do what it takes to keep you safe
Because I couldn't care less about the rest of 'em
Infected ones had better run
Because if they mess with us I'll step on 'em
And then quickly wreck what's left of 'em
Looking like someone dissected 'em, yep
Fresh trail of flesh and blood
And infected guts left in the mud
That we've left behind
Now that's peace of mind
If they want a fight, then we'll give 'em one
Now let them come!

Our time is running out
And we got nothing else
The only thing that keeps us human is each other now
Thought I could stick it out
When I was by myself
But you have given me a reason not to shut you out
There's a fire inside her
And it's made her a fighter
I will let the world burn if it means I'll survive
But the thing I'll put first is the girl by my side

A partner's only good for getting you killed
But I've been dead half my life
She is my reason to live
Even with the world crumbling down around us
We did something wrong
That you can trust me on
With all the rotten drama, hunger, war and money gone
Everything we've built this whole entire country on
Problems that we caused
Now look what we're running from
All these broken hearts
But we keep 'em covered up
Cause even if you're weak
You gotta keep on looking tough
Fighting off the fungus is getting hard enough
But I can never wash my hands of all the wrong I've done

Our time is running out
And we got nothing else
The only thing that keeps us human is each other now
Thought I could stick it out
When I was by myself
But you have given me a reason not to shut you out
There's a fire inside her
And it's made her a fighter
I will let the world burn if it means I'll survive
But the thing I'll put first is the girl by my side

But the thing I'll put first is the girl by my side
But the thing I'll put first is the girl by my side
