HERE TODAY AND GONE TOMORROW

I came to you in dark despair
I needed someone who would care.
You held me close against your heart
I felt a warmth right from the start.

Then one day He took you away
Why did it happen, who can say?
Now all that there is left for me
Is just a precious memory.

That's life, that's life!
You take the joy, you take the sorrow!
That's life, that's life!
You're here today and gone tomorrow!


My life has crumbled since you've gone
But somehow I must carry on.
The pain I feel I can't describe.
I can't forget you, though I've tried.

Each night I say a little prayer
That when He takes me you'll be there.
Together once again we'll be
I'll live again my memory.

That's life, that's life!
You take the joy, you take the sorrow!
That's life, that's life!
You're here today and gone tomorrow!

That's life! that's life!
You take the joy, you take the sorrow!
That's life! that's life!
You're here today and gone tomorrow!
