THE LIFE OF A SONG
(Written by Jason Matthews and Rebecca Lynn Howard)

Me I’m just a singer, though I may be well known
The truth is I’d be nothing without the power of a song
I’ve been blessed with fame and fortune, oh but in the end
A song’s what I wish I could have been

Chorus:
A song lives forever and never ever dies
Sings enemies together, touches so many lives
Words and melody will always be long after we are gone
Oh, how I wish I could live the life of a song

I could mend the broken wounded, I could prove that love is real
And take someone from China to a Carolina cotton field
I could comfort every solider, hum all the homeless home
I could change the world if I was just a song

(repeat chorus)

(instrumental)

There’s an end for me, it’s my destiny but this song will carry on
And it’s just three minutes long
Oh, how I wish I could live the life of a song
Oh, how I wish I could live the life of a song
