Pat James - "Let Me Live Long Enough"



Let me live long enough to take back the time I've wasted
Let me do the things that I was meant to do
Let me fill myself on the things in life up to now  I've only tasted
For once to my heart let me be true

Too many years I have spent behind this hammer
Killing myself to send the boss' kids to school
How'd I ever let myself get so used to this wage I'm earning
If things don't change, then I'm the guilty fool

Let me live long enough to take back the time I've wasted
Let me do the things that I was meant to do
Let me fill myself on the things in life up to now I've only tasted
For once to my heart let me be true

Too many songs I have sung for too few people
I realize not everyone can be a star
All I ever wanted was to make a living playing my kind of music
To have it heard somewhere outside this damned ol' bar

Let me live long enough to take back the time I've wasted
Let me do the things that I was meant to do
Let me fill myself on the things in life up to now I've only tasted
For once to my heart let me be true

Oh Lord for once to my heart let me be true.
