My Life - Iris DeMent

My life, it don't count for nothing
when I look at this world I feel so small
My life, it's only a season
a passing September that no one will recall

But I gave joy to my mother and I made my lover smile
and I can give comfort to my friends when they're hurting
and I can make it seem better for a while

My life, it's half the way traveled
and still I have not found my way out of this night
My life, it's tangled in wishes
and so many things that just never turned out right

But I gave joy to my mother and I made my lover smile
and I can give comfort to my friends when they're hurting
and I can make it seem better for a while
