Lyrics

TOUCHED BY LIFE

By Gregory W. Irish

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY I MET A PRETTY GIRL

SHE WAS MY VERY FIRST LOVE AND THIS TOOK ME FOR A WHIRL.

WE SPENT THE SUMMER TOGETHER.  SHE WORE HER HEART ON HER SLEEVE.

SO IT REALLY BROKE MY HEART WHEN SHE,    SAID SHE HAD TO LEAVE.

 

:CHORUS:  LIFE HAPPENS OR SO THEY SAY… IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY…

LIFE’S SIMPLE IT’S JUST NOT EASY SO IT SEEMS…

I’VE BEEN TOUCHED BY LIFE.

 

ABOUT THIRTY YEARS AGO, MY WIFE AND I HAD A BABY BOY.

SPENDING TIME WITH HIM AND PLAYING GAMES BROUGHT US SO MUCH JOY.

BUT AS HE REACHED HIS TEENS, HIS ATTITUDE BEGAN TO CHANGE.

HIS MOODS WOULD TRAVEL UP AND DOWN THROUGH A VERY WIDE RANGE.

 

:CHORUS:  LIFE HAPPENS OR SO THEY SAY… IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY…

LIFE’S SIMPLE IT’S JUST NOT EASY SO IT SEEMS…

I’VE BEEN TOUCHED BY LIFE.

 

EARLY IN NINETEEN NINETY SIX MY FATHER PASSED AWAY.

I MISS HIM VERY MUCH, AND I MISS HIM MORE EVERY DAY.

IT WAS DUE TO AN ILLNESS BUT IT WAS NOT HIS TIME TO GO.

NEAR THE END WE WEREN’T TOO CLOSE BUT STILL I MISS HIM SO.

 

:CHORUS:  LIFE HAPPENS OR SO THEY SAY… IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY…

LIFE’S SIMPLE IT’S JUST NOT EASY SO IT SEEMS…

I’VE BEEN TOUCHED BY LIFE.

 

A CHILD WAS BROUGHT INTO THIS WORLD, BY OUR SON’S GIRLFRIEND.

THIS BROUGHT US SO MUCH HAPPINESS YOU WOULD NEVER THINK IT’D END.

SHE HAD A GENETIC DISORDER, IT WAS KNOWN AS SMA.

IT WAS ONLY NINE MONTHS LATER THAT GOD TOOK HER AWAY.

 

:CHORUS:  LIFE HAPPENS OR SO THEY SAY… IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY…

LIFE’S SIMPLE IT’S JUST NOT EASY SO IT SEEMS…

I’VE BEEN TOUCHED BY LIFE.

 

:CHORUS:  LIFE HAPPENS OR SO THEY SAY… IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY…

LIFE’S SIMPLE IT’S JUST NOT EASY SO IT SEEMS…

I’VE BEEN TOUCHED BY LIFE.

I’VE BEEN TOUCHED BY LIFE.
