Life is a book or a burden




Verse 1:

Child, it takes some time
till you know who you are
Child, years will just fly by
You’ll be lost and you’ll be fou


Life is a book or a burden
God fills the pages we turn them
Keep on walking when it’s hurting
Cause time can heal wounds when it’s burning

Verse 2:
We all long in our heart
For a place to call home
Time is a fleeting friend
And clocks are always ticking on

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is so pretty. The light instrumentation is a wonderful backing for your lovely vocal. Such incredible lyrics. I love this!

Nice track, well performed and with good instrumentation. Little amount of lyrics but very effective!

I like the sentiment, I love watching other people's children grow up and guess where they are headed. Pretty song, and I especially like the lines "it takes some time to know who you are", and I think it's important to see that in yourself and others.

Nice R&B sound (for me anyway), nicely orchestrated, well put together.

I like the added strings, I guess violin, could be cello (which I love, haven't played mine in like 2 years now... wow, time files! ... so many things to do and keep up with).
