John Klemmer – All I Ever Wanted Was My Life lyrics

Time to hear the ocean
Time to see the sky
Time to close my eyes
Just to feel
Just be real

A chance to learn and grow
A place that I call home
A woman and child my own
Just for me
Just be free

A star to reach for
So little yet much more
Something I can really hold on to

A love I take with me
A hand to lead me

All I ever wanted was my life
All I ever wanted was my life
All I ever wanted was my life

Time to work and play
Time to think and grow
Time to search and know
Who I am
If I can

A chance to find my soul
To understand my role

All I ever wanted was my life...
Was my life... was my life
