Lifeline

Elderly Relatives

LIFELINE

You carried me, home in your arms

You loved me so much, and you kept me from harm

You washed me and fed me, the years how they flew

And now you need my help, and I’ll care for you!

 

Cho:  There’s a lifeline that ties me to you

Life rolls like a wheel through whatever we do

Through all of the hard times and anger we feel

The love that we have, well it helps us to heal,

Love’s a lifeline that pulls us all through!

 

You’ve no where to go, and you don’t like to lean

At the old people’s home, they’re packed in like sardines,

So the baby can sleep in the crib one more year

Put the kids in together, there’s room for you here!

 

Chorus:  There’s a lifeline that ties me to you

Overnight power runs out the holes in our shoes

When the looking glass flips, there’s no wrong or right

Do the best we can and hold hands in the fight

Love’s a lifeline that pulls us all through!

Instrumental Chorus

 

Most of the time now, you’re clear as a bell

But the body you’re using’s not working so well

And I know we get crazy when our patience is gone

Hey, ain’t it amazing, how we hold on,

 

Chorus:  To that lifeline that ties me to you

Life rolls like a wheel through whatever we do

Through all of the hard times and anger we feel

The love that we have, well it helps us to heal

Love’s a lifeline that pulls us all through!

Love’s a lifeline that pulls us all,

Through!
