Darryl Worley - Sounds Like Life To Me Lyrics




Got a call last night from an old friend’s wife
Said I hate to bother you
Johnny Ray fell off the wagon
He’s been gone all afternoon
I know my buddy so I drove to Skully’s
And found him at the bar
I say hey man, what’s going on
He said I don’t know where to start

Sarah’s old car’s about to fall apart
And the washer quit last week
We had to put momma in the nursing home
And the baby’s cutting teeth
I didn’t get much work this week
And I got bills to pay
I said I know this ain’t what you wanna hear
But it’s what I’m gonna say

[Chorus]
Sounds like life to me it ain’t no fantasy
It’s just a common case of everyday reality
Man I know it’s tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you’re caught up in some tragedy
It sounds like life to me

Well his face turned red and he shook his head
He said you don’t understand
Three kids and a wife depend on me
And I’m just one man
To top it off I just found out
That Sarah’s 2 months late
I said hey bartender set us up a round
We need to celebrate

[Chorus]
Sounds like life to me plain old destiny
Yeah the only thing for certain is uncertainty
You gotta hold on tight just enjoy the ride
Get used to all this unpredictability
Sounds like life

Man I know its tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you’re caught up in some tragedy
Sounds like life to me
Sounds like life

    Been there, done that. Drinking don't really help; but sometimes it can make it a little easier to put up with. You just got to pull up your boots and find a way to keep on going. Never give up hope. As one of my old bosses once told me sooner or later some luck will find its way to you.

  36. Strazdas

    You know when i was young i liked this song, but now that i grow more exprience i keep realizing how much bullshit it is. It doesnt sound like life, it sounds like a horrible life that happens when you are not smart enough to figure out how to live properly.

  37. Cheyenne Nicole

  51. Zach D

    My theme song right now. My truck fell apart, had to go belly up and lease a new one which I hate the idea of doing. My neighbor that I pay to care for our road is a prick and I had to buy a snowblower, I've got a leaking pipe which I have to shut down and only use cold water in my bathroom, and we are in a cold spell so I'm burning more oil and pellets than ever. Plus the wife is 20 weeks pregnant. I've got a 2 year old little girl to keep fed, warm, and happy. It feels like I got crapped on just before Christmas and the crap storm ain't stopping. I'm the sole provider for my family and I feel like I'm failing.

  52. donald deaver

    Yeah I really needed to hear this song

  53. Josh Holmes
