Lyrics

So I raise my glass to the good things in life
I am not here for long, but there’s time for a song
And some wine.

I have lived, I have loved
I have laughed, I have cried
I have tried to give my life some meaning
I have tried to make it all make sense
I have made the journey up the mountain
And the descents.

I have won, I have lost
I have learned to my cost
That I’ve crossed and burned too many bridges
If I could go back perhaps I would
Then again, I don’t take good advice when maybe I should.

But I lift my glass to the good things in life
I am not here for long, but there’s time for song
And some wine.

And when time runs away,
I will look back and say
That the good things in life were all mine.
