Sounds Like Life To Me Lyrics

by Darryl Worley

Got a call last night from an old friends wife, said I hate to bother you
But Johnny Ray fell off the wagon, he's been gone all afternoon
Well, I know my buddy so I drove to Scullys and found him at the bar
Said, hey man what's goin' on? He said I don't know where to start

Sarah's old car startin' to fall apart and the washer quit last week
We had to put mama in the nursing home and the baby's cuttin' teeth
I didn't get much work this week and I got bills to pay
I said I know this ain't what you wanna hear but it's what I'm gonna say

Sounds like life to me, it ain't no fantasy
It's just a common case of everyday reality
Man, I know it's tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you're caught up in some tragedy
It sounds like life to me

Well, his face turned red and he shook his head
He said you don't understand
Three kids and a wife depend on me and I'm just one man
Top it off we just found out that Sarah's two months late
I said hey bartender set us up a round, we gotta celebrate

Sounds like life to me, ain't no destiny
Yeah, the only thing for certain is uncertainty
You gotta hold on tight, just enjoy the ride
Get used to all this unpredictability
Sounds like life

Man, I know it's tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you're caught up in some tragedy
Sounds like life to me, sounds like life to me
Sounds like life, sounds like life to me
Sounds like life to me
