Original Song – “Times Of Our Lives”

Times Of Our Lives is a reflective and introspective little song about this journey we travel through life – leading us down a long and winding path to the eventual discovery of a gentle patience and acceptance of all that life offers us, an appreciation for what each day brings, a reassuring peace of mind, and the love and light of God in Christ. Our experiences of sharing this pathway called life are often a mixed bag of happiness, sadness, good times and bad – all moments to be experienced and treasured for what they have to teach us – for, “These are the times of our lives, Watchin’ the days passin’ me by, Just like clouds in the sky, As they drift by and by…”

I recorded my original song “Times Of Our Lives” in two takes as demos on Set 10 in 1997, and it speaks of living each day one by one, “These are the best of times, These are the worst of times, But they’re the only times, We’ll ever have, we’ll ever have…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
