For The Life Of Me
Paul Williams

For the life of me
I will never understand
Why shoot-'em-ups are popular
And making love's been banned
That's a sad mistake that I would not make
For the life or me

When it's almost dawn
And we're talking with our eyes
Loving with the lights on
To watch our passion rise
Love will fill my cup
I can keep this up
For the life of me

Once upon a time should be in the future
Storytellers keep it in the past
Dreaming's what improves us
Motivates and moves us
You won t be my first love
But you might be my last

It's a sinners world
And I won't say that it's right
But Lord, we do look better
When the sun goes down at night
And I would not trade the mistakes I've made
For the life of me

Once upon a time should be in the future
Storytellers keep it in the past
Dreaming's what improves us
Motivates and moves us
You won't be my first love
But you might be my last
