Life Is A Game Lyrics

Life Is A Game by Leila Vey

©2008, Music & Lyrics by Leila Vey

Promises of friendship, of a happy family,
Candles and roses, dancing in his arms so happily,
Picket fences, Sunday picnics
By the woodland stream.
Love looks so sweet in every young girl’s dreams. But…

Chorus:
Sometimes it’s not all you hoped that it would be,
So you gotta find the blessings in every little thing you see,
And if you’re feeling down ‘cuz nothing stays the same.
Just remember Mama told you that this life is just a game.

Little bundle smiling, full of promise, full of light.
Will he grow up happy? Oh, his future looks so bright.
Cap and gown and wedding plans
And a career to beat the band.
But children often come all set with other plans.
(Chorus)

When I was young I dreamed of writing music all day long,
And finding someone who would like to sing my heartfelt song,
Hear my tunes on silver screen
And attend the big awards.
It would just be nice to see some open doors. And you know…

Sometimes it is all you hoped that it would be.
Still, you’ve gotta find the blessings in every little thing you see.
And if you’re overwhelmed ‘cuz nothing stays the same,
Just remember Mama told you that this life is just a game.

Finale:
Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
Don’t let it get you down or you’ll be singing the blues.
You’ve gotta juggle what comes, smile, and lay no blame.
Just remember Mama told you that this life is just a game.
Just remember Mama told you that this life is just a game.
Just a game… Just play the game!
