To give is the reason I live To give all I can give In return for the life that I earn. I was born as a part of the plan With the heart of a man With a will to survive. And I believe Everything on this earth Having meaning and worth. To describe on the list Of someone With a place in the sun. Here I stand Reaching out for the sky Till the day that I die. I must give all I can When I go I'll go out empty hand. Leaving dust to the land Just the soul I have found Leaves the ground.

Valli's debut solo album was a gathering together of various single releases and a few new recordings. Before the release of Valli's second solo album, a single was released in July 1967 with the A-side "I Make a Fool of Myself", a record that reached number 18. Timeless, Valli's second solo album release was more coherent and Valli took more time in recording it. Timeless contains one Top 40 hit, "To Give (The Reason I Live)"

Album: Jersey Beat - The Music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Original Release Date: 2007-06-04. Genre: Rock I can give in return.

The Four Seasons are an American rock and pop band that became internationally successful in the 1960s and 1970s. Since 1970, they have also been known at times as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. In 1960, the band known as The Four Lovers evolved into the Four Seasons, with Frankie Valli as the lead singer, Bob Gaudio (formerly of the Royal Teens) on keyboards and tenor vocals, Tommy DeVito on lead guitar and baritone vocals, and Nick Massi on electric bass and bass vocals.

Frankie Valli Romancing the 60´s. Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. Now Frankie salutes the decade that made him a star with his first new studio album in 15 years. After Can’t Take My Eyes Off You came two more Top 40 solo hits: I Make a Fool of Myself and To Give (the Reason I Live). But unlike many lead singers who achieve solo success, leave their groups and never look back, Frankie stayed with the Four Seasons, producing hits in two parallel careers. While Frankie flourished solo, the Four Seasons stayed in the Top 40 with C’mon Marianne, Watch the Flowers Grow and a remake of Will You Love Me Tomorrow.
