Mary Gauthier – Lifetime lyrics

I called my mama yesterday
To wish her happy birthday
She said, Babe, your mama's getting old.
And I'm glad to be alive today.
You know, I'm 10 years cancer free
And I thank the good Lord everyday
But Marie's got it bad,
And honey, Patsy's passed away

She Said
A lifetime ain't no time at all
A lifetime ain't no time at all

As I listened to my mama's voice
I felt a chill pass right thru
I've seen the virus take the boys
I got friends that been sick too
I told her bout how Michael died
With his friends around him everyday
How we all took turns there by his side
And we helped him disappear that way.

A lifetime ain't no time at all.
A lifetime ain't no time at all.

Mama said well ain't we a mess,
Child we're full of life
And scared of death.
It must be hell to watch your friends die young,
But honey getting old now there's some fun
Life'd mean nothing if we didn't die
Laughter empty if we didn't cry
It's all the way it's supposed to be
It moves fast it's hard to see

Cause a lifetime ain't no time at all
Cause a lifetime ain't no time at all.
A lifetime ain't no time at all.
