"Wake up" she said, "Look it's a beautiful day."
Downstairs to the kitchen door, and then away
Into the light, morning moves the world on
Morning passes the time, and morning is gone
Born today some years ago, and had a happy childhood
Then I fell in love and out, so nothing's changed
Lived a life that saw me grow, into someone, I hope, is good
And yet without a doubt, I'm still the same
*Just my Life Story, minute by second, a story
That goes on forever, with each breath that I take
This is my Life Story, celebrating my story
Are smiles and tears and friends and birthday cakes
"Get up" she said, "Hurry or you might be late"
Everyday we hurry off to keep our dates
Time rushes by, there's no time to ask why
Still, we work to beat the clock, to never stop for goodbyes
Maybe I should stop awhile, to see the world around me
Discover how some things move on
And some things never change
Ever since I was a child, I've felt that life is funny
It will twist and turn from dusk to dawn, yet stay the same
So my Life Story, is self-explanatory
Won't you please start from page one, and do go on
Till I am done, till I am done, till I am done
In the 90's this song Life Story from his first Album (1974) above was used in a Television commercial and become a song that struck a chord about nostalgic childhood. Even as I was listening to this song it certainly brings back sweet memories of my childhood and prompted me to post this meaningful lyrics.
Meantime, enjoy the music (background) and have a great week!
