Smokie Norful – Life's Not Promised lyrics

Life is not promised to anyone
There'll be a way
I've got somethin' I wanna say

I need to ask you some things
About what life has offered you
The ice, the cars, those things
It really don't mean a thing

What does it mean to gain the world
And in the end lose your soul (Soul! )
I think I outta let you know
That these things don't last for life

Life's not promised to anyone
Live today and love someone
Don't live life so critical
Make up for your miracle

Life's not promised to anyone
Live today and love someone
Don't live life so critical
Make room your miracle

Show me something greater than love
And I'll show you the greatest mistake
Cause love can't be explained
You gotta give it everyday

Family's all we have
And the Lord is truly all we need
If it had not been for him
Tell me where would we be

[Chorus x3]

There's just something about the love of Christ
Cause I know you give eternal life
You will never, never, never, never know
A love like this
So I'm crying out
Life is my promise

Life... Your life is my promise
Life, life, life...


Life is not promised
You gotta live today


Love of diamonds and fancy cars
They don't compare to love that Christ brings
