  • I wake up, put my poker face on
    It's roughly the same hand
    I was dealt yesterday
    I stand up and stare out at the skyline
    It's roughly the same town
    That I saw yesterday

    Living doesn't come first try
    It takes a lifetime getting it right
    It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
    To find my place in the world symphony
    To become the melody
    The man I know I could be

    It takes a lifetime
    It takes a lifetime

    I wake up and bandage these scars
    The scars on my heart
    That prove that I'm still alive
    Yeah, I'm still alive
    Living doesn't come first try
    It takes a lifetime getting it right

    It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
    To find my place in the world symphony
    To become the melody
    The man I know I could be
    The man I know I could be
    The man I know I could be

    It takes a lifetime
    It takes a lifetime
    It takes a lifetime
    Yeah, yeah

    It takes a lifetime to learn how to sing
    To find my place in the world symphony
    To become the melody
    The man I know I could be

    It takes a lifetime
    It takes a lifetime Writer/s: ALEX COWAN, JAMES DAY, LAURENCE THOMAS ALLEN
