Lyrics

There Have Been Times - Words and Music (c) David Dana 2006

Verse 1:

There have been times i've searched inside my mind
There have been times that i've tried
There have been times that i've consoled myself
Hoping that my dreams would come alive...alive

Chorus:

But I feel compelled to see
What else my life will throw at me
So if anyone's up there
Please come and show me
Something positive
For a change

Verse 2:

There have been times my best wasn't good enough
There have been times that i've felt lost
There have been times where I have missed my chance
And ended up with something else instead...instead (to chorus)

Middle 8:

You see I've lost some things
I've won some too
Don't let the setbacks worry you
Life's a game of cards
You'll succeed in time...in time (to chorus x 2)
