Real Life

Version:

I still see the kid in me
Building castles by the sea
And skipping rocks across those ocean waves
Still building buoy rafts
And sailing on the Kachemak
And running wild across Alaskan plains

And all my yesterdays
Don't seem so long ago now
And all those early years
Will always seem like home somehow

And it was real life
And it was real good
It was a place I took for granted
'Cause I just never understood
And there was real pain
There were real tears
But the way my Mama loved me
Somehow carried all those years
It was real life
Oh it was real life

I still see the kid in jeans
But now he's standing next to me
Never thought that I'd have boys to raise
I don't have it figured out
It still feels like playing house
And it's something I am learning everyday

And all of my today's
Seem like they're rushing by so fast
And every time I look around
I pray that it will last

And it's real life
And it's real good
And sometimes I take it all for granted
Even though I never should
And there is real pain
And there are real tears
But the way my baby loves me
Somehow carries all these years
And this is real life

When I'm old and turning gray
And my boys have moved away
When it's time for me to say goodbye
I hope I leave a legacy
I hope that God is proud of me
I hope that I leave something good behind

And all my yesterdays
Are flashing right before my eyes
And I'm standing in God's presence
When I finally realize

This is real life
This is real good
It's a place I took for granted
'Cause I just never understood
And there'll be no pain
And there'll be no tears
'Cause the way my Father loves me
Makes me grateful I am here
This is real life
This is real good
It's a place I took for granted
'Cause I just never understood
There'll be no pain
There'll be no tears
'Cause the way that You have loved me
Is the reason I am here
This is real life
Oh this is real life
Oh this is real life
This is real life
