LIFE'S TOO SHORT
Copyright 2001 - MickTerry.com

6/8
It's not hard to look down on someone
when you just can't see eye to eye.
But it's hard to look down on someone
when all you can see is their thigh.

    LIFE'S TOO SHORT
    to be stuck on the little things.
    LIFE'S TOO SHORT
    to be petty, to be small.
    LIFE'S TOO SHORT
    to be stuck on the little things.
    Time to get on top of it all.

You can paint yourself in a corner
or expand to the open sky.
You can paint your world as you wanna,
with whatever palette you try.

    CHORUS

        You may think you've got your shortcomings
        when you get the short end of the stick.
        But it's all up to you, standing tall in your shoes,
        when the short straw is all that you pick.

You can sail beyond the horizon
or just sink in your own small slip.
You can sail where you set your sights on,
enjoy every mile of the trip.

    CHORUS

That's enough of this moment of candor.
That's enough of this shot at a roast,
lest somebody be brought up for slander
'cause smoking had stunted his growth.

Written for & dedicated to Jeff Sturman   (1944-2002),
someone of not quite too great a physical stature,
who was a talented artist, a prize-winning sailor,
and an addicted cigarette smoker.
Cigarettes cut his life too short.

To other time song lyrics:   PATIENCE
TURNING OLD
UNDER A ROCK
THE OTHER WAY
FILLING THE TUB
DRIVE THIS SLOW
EXCUSES, EXCUSES
LATE FOR HIS OWN LIFE
PEOPLE THINK I'M HORNY
WHY WAIT? PROCRASTINATE
WHEELCHAIR IN SAN FRANCISCO
DOES SHE KNOW WHAT SHE IS DOING?
To the TOP
