Life Ain't Always Beautiful

Sometimes a song really reaches inside and touches you. It takes everything that is rolling around and condenses it cleanly into a melodious 3-minutes. Even though you didn't author it yourself, it becomes "yours". This is my latest...

Life Ain't Always Beautiful
by Gary Allan

Life ain't always beautiful.
Sometimes it's just plain hard.
Life can knock you down,
It can break your heart.


Life ain't always beautiful.
You think you're on your way.
And it's just a dead end road,
At the end of the day.

But the struggles make you stronger,
And the changes make you wise.
And happiness has it's own way,
Of takin' it's sweet time.

No, life ain't always beautiful.
Tears will fall sometimes.
Life ain't always beautiful,
But it's a beautiful ride.

Life ain't always beautiful.
Some days, I miss your smile.
I get tired of walkin' all,
These lonely miles.

And I wish for just one minute,
I could see your pretty face.
Guess I can dream,
But life don't work that way.

But the struggles make me stronger,
And the changes make me wise.
And happiness has it's own way,
Of takin' it's sweet time.

No, life ain't always beautiful.
But I know I'll be fine.
Hey, life ain't always beautiful,
But it's a beautiful ride.
What a beautiful ride.

I know that my time will come and I will be a mother. The journey that has brought me to today has been filled with happiness, laughter and heartache; none of which I regret. I've always believed that in order to truly experience joy and happiness you need to know the hurt of heartache. The happiness and heartache has brought new people into my life, strengthened existing relationships and brought a new sense of love to my marriage. All in all, it's been a beautiful ride.
