Jackson, Alan - Song For The Life Lyrics




Well I don't drink as much as I used to
Lately, it just ain't my style
And the hard times don't hurt like they ought to
They pass quicker, like when I was a child

And somehow I've learned how to listen
For a sound like the sun going down
In the magic the morning is bringing
There's a song for the life I have found
It keeps my feet on the ground

And the midsummer days sit so heavy
But don't they flow like the breeze through your mind
When nothing appears in a hurry
To make up for someone's lost time

And somehow I've learned how to listen
For a sound like the sun going down
In the magic the morning is bringing
There's a song for the life I have found
It keeps my feet on the ground

And somehow I've learned how to listen
For a sound like the breeze dying down
In the magic the morning is bringing
There's a song for the friend I have found
She keeps my feet on the ground

She keeps my feet on the ground.

    Song For The Life
    Alan Jackson

    Well I don't drink as much as I used to
    Lately it just ain't my style
    And the hard times don't hurt like they ought to
    They pass quicker like when I was a child
    And somehow I've learned how to listen
    For a sound like the sun going down
    In the magic the morning is bringing
    There's a song for the life I have found
    It keeps my feet on the ground
    And the midsummer days sit so heavy
    But don't they flow like the breeze through your mind
    When nothing appears in a hurry
    To make up for someone's lost time
    And somehow I've learned how to listen
    For a sound like the sun going down
    In the magic the morning is bringing
    There's a song for the life I have found
    It keeps my feet on the ground
    And somehow I've learned how to listen
    For a sound like the breeze dying down
    In the magic the morning is bringing
    There's a song for the friend I have found
    She keeps my feet on the ground
    She keeps my feet on the ground

    I've see you on a few threads. You're desperate to troll when you find a comment from a year or two and throw your 2 cents at it. Find a better way to pass your time.
