Something to Live For

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella at Duke's Place (1965) and on the compilation album First Lady of Song (1993).

I have almost everything a human could desire
Cars and houses, bear skin rugs to lie before my fire
But there's something missing, something isn't there
It seems I'm never kissing the one whom I could care for

I want something to live for
Someone to make my life an adventurous dream
Oh, what wouldn't I give for
Someone who'd take my life and make it seem gay
As they say it ought to be

Why can't I have love like that brought to me?
My eye is watching the noon crowds
Searching the prom nights, seeking a clue
To the one who will someday be my something to live for
I want something to live for
