From the album Free Downloads !!!


“A tough old man once broke some news to me about himself that he knew I
would find very hard. The words he chose will ring in my head forever...

It was from those words of his that this song was born, and everywhere it goes

it continues to touch the hearts of those who hear it”



The song received 10th place in the Australian songwriters Awards and went to the Australian National Top 30.

It is now my pleasure to release it internationally…



Thanks for taking the time to listen!!







Lyrics

YOU WIN SOME , YOU LOSE SOME

VERSE ONE

The old man don’t feel old at all, with shoulders straight he stands up tall
He says “Now I don’t wanna go , but Lord my steps are gettin' slow........
There’s still some things I wanna do, and I won’t sit here feelin' blue
I‘ve got this thing, won’t go away, but it’s alright, and I’ve gotta say.......

CHORUS

You win some, you lose some , what's done can’t be undone
And who are we to say it isn’t fair...
There’s a plan made for everything, you learn to live what life brings,
And all I know’s they’re waitin’ for me there....”

VERSE TWO

Now I see him out there walkin’, and it makes me wanna cry,
And I wonder if, we’ll ever get to know the reasons why....
‘ Cause in his mind it’s easy, he takes each day the same
I guess he’ll always be there and I’ll hear him say again....

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And in our rush and worries, we need to stop awhile,
We need to take each other’s hands , we need to share a smile,
‘Cause life don’t last forever, and we all should take the time
To learn to love what's round us, ‘cause one day we’re gonna find,
Gonna find ...

CHORUS

You win some, you lose some , what's done can’t be undone
And who are we to say it isn’t fair...
There’s a plan made for everything, you learn to live what life brings,
And all I know’s they’re waitin’ for me there,
And all I know’s they’re waitin’ for me there....
And yes, I know they’re waitin’ for me there.....
