Lyrics

Blessing or a Curse

Written By: Linley Gai West

I used to laugh at those content to just survive
Happy with convention barely knowing they’re alive.
I was content to rest in autumn sunshine mild
Looking back on seasons past, forgot my life lived so fast.

Standing in life’s lineup you’d always be the one
Accepting serendipity ‘cause certainty’s no fun.
Take a little gamble, life’s just a poker game
Win or lose you find yourself richer for the pain.

Then the spirit rises from within
To take a chance on life once again

Blessing or a curse
Not content to let it ride
Risking all I leave behind
Just because you’re on my mind
My blessing or my curse.

I found your spirit not afraid to ask for more
More love and laughter, ne’er mind what’s in life’s store.
Take another gamble - life just a game of chance
Win or lose we find ourselves enchanted by the dance.

Then the spirit rises from within
To take a chance on life once again

Blessing or a curse
Not content to let it ride
Risking all I leave behind
Just because you’re on my mind
My blessing or my curse.
.

Bridge
When we’re old we’ll look back
With hindsight’s wisdom strong ….
Judge us right or wrong….
Its our life-time story …..

Let the spirit rise from within
To take a chance on life once again

Blessing or a curse
Not content to let it ride
Risking all I leave behind
Just because you’re on my mind
My blessing or my curse.

Blessing or a curse
I’m not content to let it ride
Now I’m risking all I leave behind
Its just because you’re on my mind
My blessing or my curse.
