The Life

Words and Music by Brian Fife



I can never comprehend the beginning or the end,
And everything that's in between looks like nothing I've ever seen.
The ghosts that haunt me from the past,
Never thought that they could last this long.

And wouldn't you think that by this time I would be
A little further down the road, a little lighter in this load I bear.

After several bouts with honesty
and books hell bent on curing me,
I think that I can safely say
it may take longer than a day,
To find out what is wrong inside.
Meanwhile can I be satisfied with what is right?

Chorus
And if I could go back in time, I wouldn't change a thing.
Even when there's no reason or rhyme,
who knows what tomorrow may bring?
As long as I've got love on my side,
This is the life for me, for me.
There is a canyon deep and wide;
I can't get to the other side.
I think I'll stay here for awhile,
gaze at the colors stretched for miles.
Didn't think that this would be the way it is;
I'll wait and see what is to come. (Chorus)

And wouldn't you think that by this time
I would be a little further down the road,
a little lighter in this load I bear? (Chorus)
