Lifetime Lyrics

by Kris Allen

I wake up, put my poker face on
It's roughly the same hand I was dealt yesterday
I stand up and stare out at the skyline
It's roughly the same town that I saw yesterday

Living doesn't come first try
It takes a lifetime getting it right

It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
To find my place in the world symphony
To become the melody
The man I know I could be

It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime

I wake up and bandage these scars
The scars on my heart
That prove that I'm still alive
Yeah, I'm still alive

Living doesn't come first try
It takes a lifetime getting it right

It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
To find my place in the world symphony
To become the melody
The man I know I could be
The man I know I could be
The man I know I could be

It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime, yeah, yeah

It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
To find my place in the world symphony
To become the melody
The man I know I could be

It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime
To become the melody
The man I know I could be

It takes a lifetime
It takes a lifetime
