Lyrics

A HUNDRED YEARS
Sammy Horner

Now every life lived fully is a life that errors much
We crave the things that hurt us
With eyes and taste and touch
But life is for the living
And the risks are heaven sent
May you live a hundred years and one more to repent
May you live a hundred years, may you live a hundred years
May you live a hundred years and one more to repent

It's not how you've been knocked down
It's the getting up again
A lesson learned is worth the cost
If next time you abstain
Then tell it to your children
A lesson learned and kent
May you live a hundred years and one more to repent

Tho’ shadows linger at our door
They're given form by light
The glorious sun shall rise each morn
In spite how long the night
And every trial that we face won't win with our consent
May you live a hundred years and one more to repent
