The lyrics

Verse 1
Woke up this morning with a thought that ran right through my head.
Life is short and time is sweet, and I wanna spend it all with you!Verse 2
I sat alone so many days, I slept alone so many nights
I thought that love was nearly out of sight, but then you caught my eyeChorus
Won’t be here for very long so I’m gonna sing this in my song
Life’s been better since you’ve come around and you have changed my soundBridge
Time together spent with you, you’re my song and my dream come true
Holdin’ hands baby, walkin’ down the road, we’ll take one day at a timeChorus 2
People come and people go, sometimes fast and sometimes slow
Life’s been better since you’ve come around and you have changed my sound
Life’s been better since you’ve come around and you have changed my sound

Dave would like to thank his sponsor, Stringjoy!

Here is what Dave Powers has to say about Stringjoy:

“I’ve had the privilege of talking with Stringjoy’s owner, Scott. What a cool guy! He’s a good business man, REALLY cares about customer service, and wants guitar/bass players to be stoked about the sound of their strings. He and his team work hard at it and the strings are made in the U.S.A., which makes me very happy!

If you’re looking for a new string company, give Stringjoy a shot! They also have picks, cables, and an assortment of other mischief! It’s a HUGE privilege for me to be a part of the Stringjoy Family of Artists!”
