Time flies faster with every birthday. Before you know it, you're at a pivotal moment in your life, such as the events this song talks about. Every day is precious, make them count!

Lyrics

           A LIFETIME AIN'T THAT LONG

Our son was out on the Chessapeake

He was standing on the deck in white

I was so choked up, I could barely speak

His Navy ship sailing out of sight

He's the kid that love cartoons, football and his toy cars

He grew up way too soon

Time flew like a shooting star

And I'll think about it now and then

And wonder where the time has gone

Cause when it's all said and done

A LIFETIME AIN'T THAT LONG

Later on that same year

We all gathered when Daddy died

And I'm still looking for those tears

The ones I never cried

He was a hard man his whole life

A farmer from the Bible Belt

I didn't take time to say goodbye

And I'm tryin' to forgive myself

Cause I never told him that I loved him

Now that chance is gone

Cause when it's all said and done

A LIFETIME AIN'T THAT LONG

If you've got something you need to do

If you've got something you need to say

Now's the time to get it done

Before the time gets away

Now I'm noticing the little things

A gentle breeze and the setting sun

The tender kiss my wife brings

That says I'm still the one

All our years have been a blur

And we're still hangin' tough

A lifetime spent loving her 

Won't be long enough

So we're busy makin' memories

Before our time is gone

Cause when it' all said and done

A LIFETIME AIN'T THAT LONG
