I have kept this secret
From myself for far too long
The truth is, I'm confused
about where I belong
I'm not a mother or a wife
And I'm living such a complicated life
And this is the life I know

My life is full
in some of the most important ways
the entity, in the core
at the end of everyday
I lock the door, turn out the lights
And I climb in bed
And it's all alright
cuz this is the life I know

I cut the grass
take out the trash
and fill the gas
In this house
I am the mom, and the dad
What tomorrow brings
I do not know
yes, I know it's unconventional
But, It's the life I know

We all have a secret pain
We all have a tender place
We were born to learn more
and no I'm not meant to live alone
and this is the life I know

Yes, this is the life I know

All my friends
are having families of their own
I'm still waiting for
the perfect one to come
almost four decades in
if I'm blessed, then I've got five more to go
And this is the Life I know

Sometime it hurts like hell
but I walk away with a song
and a story to tell
and this is the life I know
Yes, this is the life I know

And this is the Life I know
