Ray Conniff – Here Today And Gone Tomorrow Lyrics

I came to you in dark despair
I needed someone who would care
You held me close against your heart
I felt the warmth right from the start

Then one day he took you away
Why did it happen, who can say?
Now all that there is left for me
Is just a precious memory

That’s life, that’s life
You take the joy, you take the sorrow
That’s life, that’s life
You’re here today and gone tomorrow

My life has crumbled since you’ve gone
But somehow I must carry on

The pain I feel I can’t describe
I can’t forget you though I’ve tried

Each night I say a little prayer
That when he takes me you’ll be there
Together once again we’ll be
I’ll live again by memory

That’s life, that’s life
You take the joy, you take the sorrow
That’s life, that’s life
You’re here today and gone tomorrow

That’s life, that’s life
You take the joy, you take the sorrow
That’s life, that’s life
You’re here today and gone tomorrow
