Song Description

Someone has lived and lived well, with dreams coming true and dreams shattering into pieces. This person has taken stock, realized what is good in life, and has been fortunate enough to find new love later in life.

Story Behind the Song

I wanted to write a song someone like Kenny Rogers could sing.

Lyrics

I'VE BEEN FAR AND WIDE, TRAVELED HERE AND THERE
MANY YEARS WERE GOOD AS GOLD, SOME WERE FAIR
I'VE HAD DREAMS THAT ALL CAME TRUE THEN FLEW AWAY
I'VE REFLECTED ON ALL THE MOMENTS SPENT
WITH GOOD FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES THAT HAVE MEANT
THE WHOLE WORLD TO MY EXISTENCE DAY TO DAY

I HAVE MADE MISTAKES
THAT I LONGED WOULD PASS
DROPPING SHATTERED DREAMS
THAT WERE SHARP AS GLASS
BUT IN BROKEN DREAMS
THE SUN REFLECTS ANEW

I'VE PICKED ME UP
MET THE BRAND NEW DAY
SHINING UP WHAT'S LEFT
SWEPT THE PAST AWAY
AND I'VE GOT ENOUGH THAT'S GOOD
TO SEE ME THROUGH

LIKE A GLASS OF WINE HALF FULL OF YEARS
WE KEEP DRINKING LIFE THEN WE SHED SOME TEARS
WHEN TWO THIRDS OF IT'S GONE DOWN WHILE WE'RE AT PLAY
MEETING YOU HAS GONE AND MADE ME REALIZE
THAT MY HEART'S REFLECTION IN YOUR EYES
MAKES ME GRATEFUL TO FIND LOVE LATE IN THE DAY

I HAVE MADE MISTAKES
THAT I LONGED WOULD PASS
DROPPING SHATTERED DREAMS
THAT WERE SHARP AS GLASS
BUT SOMETIMES A NEW DREAM
COMES OUT OF THE BLUE

I HAVE GOTTEN UP
MET THE BRAND NEW DAY
SHINING UP WHAT'S LEFT
SWEPT THE PAST AWAY
AND I'VE GOT ENOUGH THAT'S GOOD
TO SEE ME THROUGH

I'LL TURN MY HEAD AROUND
FACE THE DAWN AGAIN
'NOTHER SUNRISE ON THE WAY
'CAUSE I GOT YOU NOW
IN MY LIFE FOR GOOD
AND I KNOW YOU'RE HERE TO STAY
LET'S MAKE THE MOST OF WHAT
WE'VE GOT LEFT TO SHARE
HAND AND HAND WE'LL BE OKAY

I HAVE MADE MISTAKES
THAT I LONGED WOULD PASS
DROPPING SHATTERED DREAMS
THAT WERE SHARP AS GLASS
BUT SOMETIMES A NEW DREAM
COMES OUT OF THE BLUE

SECOND CHANCES COME
WITH A BRAND NEW DAY
SHINING DOWN ON LOVE
THAT IS HERE TO STAY
'CAUSE WE'VE GOT ENOUGH THAT'S GOOD
TO SEE US THROUGH
YES WE'VE GOT ENOUGH THAT'S GOOD
TO SEE US THROUGH
