LIFETIME OF SONG
Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

How great is the need for the toys of mankind
If you learn how to feed from the joys you can find?
When a smile and a wink and a snippet of song
Is good trade for a drink and a place to belong?

What gift can I find in return for this prize?
All the genuine kindness I see in your eyes?
I can learn of your dreams and this much I can do
For this moment, it seems, I can give them to you

I WILL FASHION A RHYME WITH A TWIST OF MY TONGUE
I WILL TURN BACK THE TIME TO WHEN ALL THINGS WERE YOUNG
I WILL GIVE TO THIS EARTH, OF MY SELF, RIGHT OR WRONG
FOR YOUR KINDNESS IS WORTH MY LIFETIME OF SONG

I’ll confront all your fears so for you they will die
I can cry all the tears that you tough boys won’t cry
All the words you can’t speak will be my common speech
All the answers you seek, I can help you to reach

This vow that I make, for my lifetime will stay
For the music you take, you can give what you may
A green paper eagle, or a smile when we part
All tender is legal when sent from the heart!
