Lyrics

Sittin' here tonight,
By the fire light,
It reminds me I already have more than I should.

I don't need fame, no one to know my name,
at the end of the day,
Lord, I pray, I have a life that's good.

Two arms around me, heaven to ground me,
and a family that always calls me home,

Four wheels to get there, enough love to share
and a sweet sweet sweet song

At the end of the day,
Lord I pray
I have a life that's good.

Sometimes I'm hard on me.
When dreams don't come easy,
I wanna look back and say,
I did all that I could,

Yeah, at the end of the day, Lord I pray,
I have a life that's good.

Two arms around me, heaven to ground me,
and a family that always calls me home,

Four wheels to get there, enough love to share
and a sweet sweet sweet song

(Repeat 2x)

At the end of the day, Lord I pray
I have a life that's good
