Life Happened To Us - Song Lyrics

Life Happened To Us - Copyright 2006 Charles Sjolander
Life Happened To Us

Written 1998

Verse 1:
she's older now though childish it seems
I remember how she was the girl of my dreams
those dreams have grown though some have died
if we had known would we still have tried

Refrain:
life happened to us as it often does
and the pictures fade into what once was
we played simple games your hand in mine
whispered names from a distant time

Verse 2:
I start at the end with a man I know
he was my best friend but that was long ago
I remember him like a familiar song 
when the light is dim and the night is long

Refrain.

Verse 3:
the cast has changed through the years I write
but the soul remained safe but out of sight
I venture here in the distant past 
sometimes you appear but only the smile will last

Refrain.
