Intro
You ever think about life if you didn’t exist anymore
How would it be
If there wasn’t rain wouldn't be no sunshine
If there wasn't pain wouldn’t be no fun time
Every day I pray cause we just get one life
To get me thru the day even if it's tough times
Hear me out

Verse 1
Yeah I know I’m thankful for a lot of things
I never thought I would have accomplish this in my wildest dreams
We take for granted the hand that we hold, get dealt with
And shoot for stars but I know this part of me selfish
Was blessed with mom and dad had grandmas there from day one
Now both my grandmas gone and still I keep my faith up
I see my family grow while uncles, aunties pass away
And watch the sick get healed recover now they back today
Yea it’s a never ending cycle
Cause one minute you living then the next minute you might go
Huh, I look at life from a different view
Give it my all and treat it good until it's sick of you
When it's my time to go I’m going out with no regrets
And check my bucket list I'll make sure that it's full of checks
At night before I sleep I kiss my kids upon their cheeks
Cause tomorrow's never promised just remember me.

(Chorus)
As I lay me down to sleep
I close my eyes and start to think
And if I die before I wake
Just know, just know, just know
That this life has been good to me


Verse 2
Yea and I am so grateful for every second
For every chance and for every moment that's ever hectic
Respects my motto until I die and I know I’ll rep it
And every man was created equal with imperfections
So it ain’t right to point the finger
I struggled thru my sour days now Karma's made it sweeter
I count my blessings daily so that makes me a believer
In Jesus Christ I sacrifice and I’m prepared to lead ya
Thru the ruff roads up the steep hills
When your luck goes all your problems seem real
In your pit falls and your trouble times
When you’re out lost searching for another sign
Yea I be that light that lead you to the right direction
And keep you safe at times when you are feeling misdirected
Believe at night before I sleep I kiss my kids upon their cheeks
Cause tomorrow’s never promised just remember me

(Chorus)
As I lay me Down to sleep
I close my eyes and start to think
And if I die before I wake
Just know, just know, just know
That this life has been good to me


(Bridge)
This life has been good to me x 3

(Chorus)
As I lay me Down to sleep
I close my eyes and start to think
And if I die before I wake
Just know, just know, just know
That this life has been good to me
