Life Goes On Lyrics

by Terri Clark

Back in 1994
I fell head over heals for the boy next door
I prayed every night and day
That God would turn his head my way

Graduation he moved on
Broke my heart like a country song
Must have cried two rivers long

Oh, but life goes on and before too long
You figure out you're right where you belong
It's sad and it's sweet but if you're lucky
It keeps going on and on and on

Then came 1999
My heart broke for the second time
Left me cryin' on the steps
Burned me down like a cigarette

Just like that and he was gone
My heart sunk like a ten pound stone
Hand no right to do me wrong

Oh, but life goes on and before too long
You figure out you're right where you belong
It's sad and it's sweet but if you're lucky
It keeps going on and on and on

My mama always said
That they'll be lesson that you learn
You don't need to know 'em all right now

But I'm learning as I go
And the more I learn I know
The less I want to know anyhow

I finally found my whole world
Little boy and a little girl
Got me a man with a heart of gold
It all came back a hundred fold

And I watch the gravel kickin' up
As he pull in the drive in his pick-up truck
I just smile and my good luck

Oh, and life goes on and before too long
You figure out you're right where you belong
It's sad and it's sweet but if you're luck
It keeps going on and on and on
On and on and on
