Lyrics

Just One Life
© 2016 Sol Knopf

He plays checkers Every Sunday in the park I've seen him there
Today he's alone He waves to me and points to an empty chair
Offers me his hand And says, “My name is Jack”.
What ya do for a living...young man?

I said “I'm a singer”, haven't made the big time though I've tried
It's been tough, but somehow the music gets me by
I would have sold my soul for a record to go gold
Or for thousands on their feet to sing my songs
Jack tapped my arm, and said...

Chorus
If you touch just one life it won't stop right there
Like a pebble thrown in the pond
The waves of good will ripple on
Then circle round to hearts everywhere
That's right....If you touch just one life

He said I was 20, full of myself 'till they sent me to Vietnam
Man I got captured, felt pain and fear I still don't understand
But I fought through tears on muddy knees Prayin God would bring me home
I promised him I'd do all that I can well, here I am

CHORUS

bridge
So now I lend a helping hand to those who need lifting up
I try hard to forgive those who hurt me so much
'Cause If we each touch just one life
To heal the wounds in this whole world
Just think of the good everyone could do tonight

Like a pebble thrown in the pond
The waves of good will ripple on
Then circle back to the one who tossed it there
That's right
If you touch just one life.
If you touch just one life.
