Tom T. Hall – One Of The Mysteries Of Life lyrics

If I were you, I wouldn't waste my time
You can't answer all the questions in your mind
Love is love and you can't make it right
It's one of the mysteries of life

How can you know love when no one ever knew
It's the mother of all happiness and father of the blues
Love puts sunshine in your days, then steals your sleep at night
It's one of the mysteries of life

Maybe you should take it day by day
If you hold love too loosely, it will fly away
If you hold love too tightly, it will die
It's one of the mysteries of life
