david m. bailey: Music & Lyrics

In My Life

(david m. bailey)
david m. bailey
in my life there’ve been too many chances to cry
in my life I have waited too long to learn to fly
in my life
I’ve watched a thousand wells go dry
but you came to me and I am free

in my life I’ve spent too many nights all alone
in my life I’ve never found a star to wish upon
in my life
I’ve watched a thousand hearts turn to stone
but you came to me and I am free

in my life there were too many good-bys I had to say
in my life I’ve watched too many friends drift away
in my life
nothing ever seemed to stay the same
but you came to me and I am free

and I don’t know how you did it
you’ve got magic in your eyes
when you look at me somehow I see the feelings I disguise
the chains have fallen ‘round my feet
and it’s hard to understand
but I know that I am free now
and I’ll never go back again

in my life even darkness has a way of looking bright
in my life I’m no longer afraid of the night
in my life
there’s no dream that is too far out of sight
‘cause you came to me and I am free
