That’s Life

I’ve been the king and I’ve played the clown
That’s life
I’ve been the verb and I’ve been the noun
That’s life
When you’re on the top you don’t know it
When you’re at the bottom well you just don’t show it
I’ve been right side up and upside down
That’s life
I’ve been loved and I’ve been thrown out
That’s life
I’ve known hope and I’ve known doubt
That’s life
I’ve seen beauty and I’ve seen hate
I’ve been early and I’ve been too late
I learned more from a whisper than a shout
That’s life
I’ve been the winner and I lost it all
That’s life
I seen men rise and I seen ‘em crawl
That’s life
I’ve seen the mighty fall down hard
Seen a loser play a winning card
I learned to stand and I learned to fall
That’s life
I’ve been a puppet and a puppeteer
That’s life
I’ve been convicted and I got off clear
That’s life
Seen the rich who have no taste
I’ve seen the best just go to waste
I’ve known peace and I’ve known fear
That’s life
I’ve been a lover and I’ve been loved too
That’s life
I’ve longed for the old and embraced the new
That’s life
Made mistakes and I got it right
I’ve slept all day and blazed all night
I’ve heard the lies seen ‘em all come true
That’s life
