Lyrics

Time Of My Life

Verse 1
A whisper in the dark
Is gently preying on my mind
"It's time to put your
House in order, make amends
You're running out of
Borrowed time"
Reminiscing crazy days
The whisky, women
Wine and song
But we learned from
Our own mistakes
We know now
Youth is wasted on the young

Chorus
I’
ve had the
Time of my life, with you
We shared the good times
And the bad times too
When life was tough
We got each other through
Forever, you have been
My friend
I spent the springtime
Of my life with you
The summer, autumn
And winter too
If I could go back in time
With you
We’d make the same
Mistakes again

Oh ~~ same mistakes again
Oh ~~ same mistakes again

Verse 3
A whisper in the dark
Is gently preying on my mind
Still many dreams
To fulfill with you
My sweet love
I’m running out of
Borrowed time
Blissful love
Was late in coming
But just to hold you
In the morning light
Precious love
To simply be with you
I swear to God
It’s been the highlight
Of my life

Chorus
I’ve had the
Time of my life with you
We shared good times
And the bad times too
And when life was tough
We got each other through
Forever, you have been
My friend
I spent the twilight
Of my life with you
The summer, autumn
Winter too
I wish I could go back
In time with you
And we could do it
All over again
yeah yeah

Outro
I’ve had the time of my life
The time of my life
The time of my life
With you
I’ve had the time of my life
So darling don’t you cry
To live on in a loved one’s heart
Is not to die

Sweet darling
I’ve had the time of my life

Time Of My Life

(And I’m gonna do it all again!)
                                           

This song came about via a newspaper quote.
A father at his son's funeral said "to live on in the hearts of the ones who love you,
is not to die."
I tweaked it a bit and used it for the end of this song, leaving me with the beginning and the middle parts to write.
I'd never written a song that way round before!
Oh and full credit to
Pablo - he added the best bit (the last line) - I lOVE it!
