Thank You for a Life Lyrics

Song by Kris Kristofferson

Thank you for a life that I’d call happy
Overlooking all that we’ve been through
When it comes to loving I’ve been lucky
Everything I am, I owe to you

Thank you for the little girls you gave me
Thank you for them bouncing baby boys
Thank you for the sadness that you saved me from the madness, baby
All I’m crying now are tears of joy

Thank you for that burning sun that’s rising
Golden in the air that smells so sweet
Thank you for that empty far horizon
That opens to a new eternity

You know I’m grateful for the freedom
And the chances
And every little piece of sweetness
That I’ve known

And I’m grateful for the justice
And the mercy
And all the truth and beauty
I’ve been shown

So thank you for a life that I’d call happy
Overlooking all that we’ve been through
When it comes to loving I’ve been lucky
Everything I am, I owe to you
