  • In another time and place
    Grandma would kiss my face
    Wish I could go back there again
    I'd climb up in my grandpa's lap
    I'd lay down and take a nap
    That old man and me were best friends

    And one day I turned around
    Leaves are fallin', fallin' down
    Those fields were bare and brown and they were gone

    Long gone like bluebonnets in the spring
    We're only here for a little while
    It's beautiful and bittersweet
    So make the most of every mile
    So pack light and love heavy
    Give it all your heart and soul, so in the end
    You won't regret one thing
    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring.

    There's so much I can't explain
    Such as gravity and pain
    Still I remain, blindfolded and full of faith
    I kissed my angel girl goodbye
    Still can't help but wonder why
    But I believe I'll see her again someday

    So, hold 'em tender, hold 'em tight
    Pray every mornin', day, and night
    That God will help you raise them right
    And don't you blink, don't blink

    'Cause like bluebonnets in the spring
    We're only here for a little while
    It's beautiful and bittersweet
    So make the most of every mile
    So pack light and love heavy
    Give it all your heart and soul
    So in the end you won't regret one thing
    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring

    Life can be filled full of sorrow
    Time is something you can't borrow
    So love like there's no tomorrow
    Because today could the day

    Like bluebonnets in the spring
    We're only here for a little while
    It's beautiful and bittersweet
    So make the most of every mile
    So pack light and love heavy
    Give it all your heart and soul, so in the end
    You won't regret one thing
    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring

    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring
