Verse 1: When I was kid I used to cry
Look to my dad and ask him why.
Why do things have to end or die?
Dad just smiled said its the best part of being alive.

Chorus: Cause pain will hurt a little while.
But close your eyes and baby smile.
And darlin’ when you open them the sun will shine a brighter shine.
And if it don’t just give it time.
Cause appreciating what lives and dies.
Is the best part of being alive.

Verse2: So I wiped my tears away.
And I woke up to a better day.
And to now I can truly say.
To appreciate what lives and dies is the best part of being alive.

Chorus: Cause pain will hurt a little while.
But close your eyes and baby smile.
And darlin’ when you open them the sun will shine a brighter shine.
And if it don’t just give it time.
Cause appreciating what lives and dies.
Is the best part of being alive.

Verse 3: Well I guess all good things have to go.
This me and my daddy know.
Folks may curse and say, "what a shame."
But I think about my dad again.
And then it just don’t seem that bad at all.
So I’ll leave all that mourning up to ya’ll.

Chorus: Cause pain will hurt a little while.
But close your eyes and baby smile.
And darlin’ when you open them the sun will shine a brighter shine.
And if it don’t just give it time.
Cause appreciating what lives and dies.
Is the best part of being alive.

Verse 4: Oh, that's what me and my daddy know.
Yeah that all good things have to go…
