this was my life lyrics – celtic thunder

i have loved, and i have lived
and i have had my wild romances
i’ve taken all that life can give
and taken my fair share of chances

it’s been a good life
far from the high life
and i thank god that this was my life

i’ve known just how it is to win
and i have felt the pain of losing
some paths i chose would end in tears
but they were all of my own choosing

it’s been a good life
far from the high life
and i thank god that this was my life

i’ve known contentment
in a woman’s arms
and felt the warmth of her devotion
and i’ve known heartache
and a dark despair
that was as deep as any ocean

but we get the strength to carry on
and build a life of our own making
we thank the lord for each new day
and for every breath that we are taking

it’s a good life
far from the high life
and i thank god that this was my life

i’ve known contentment
in a woman’s arms
and felt the warmth of her devotion
and i’ve known heartache
and a dark despair
that was as deep as any ocean

and looking back on all the years
the loves, the sweetness, and the sorrow
have made me what i am today
and i’d do it all again tomorrow

it’s been a good life
far from the high life
and i thank god that this was my life

we can’t deny life
how it flies by, life
and i thank god that this was my life
it’s a good life
far from the high life
and i thank god that this was my life
