Life's Been Kind (Memory to Wear)

(Tracy Stark)
Hey - Weren’t you an old friend
Just the other day
What’s it been? Like 20 years - or more?

I remember you were so nice
I think I even kissed you once or twice
And with all I’ve forgotten
You, I can remember just the same

And I know - sometimes I look back
Cause sometimes life’s been kind
And you know - the train’s still on the track
Well maybe it don’t move as fast anymore
But it’s still on time

Oh, and I have fought some wars
I’m getting these lines on my face
But I can tell you now that it’s ok
They’ve earned their rightful place

And sometimes someone touches you so
And you got a new memory to wear
And no one knows exactly what you’ve been through
But we can tell you’ve been somewhere

And sometimes I look back
Cause sometimes life’s been kind
And you know - the train’s still on the track
Well maybe it don’t move as fast anymore
But it’s still on time

And here I reassess this hand that I’ve been dealt
And yes I’ve crawled on my knees and I got myself dirty
Just to see how it felt

But I can still hold my back straight and keep myself strong
And hope I don’t spend this life I’ve chosen
Wondering if it’s right - or if it’s wrong

And sometimes I look back
Cause sometimes life’s been kind
And you know - the train’s still on the track
Well maybe it don’t move as fast anymore
Maybe it don’t move like it did once before
Maybe it don’t move so fast anymore

But sometimes life’s been kind
