Song Lyrics:

Life’s About The Little Things
I remember as a child the love that filled my home
All the pictures on the walls held happy memories of their own
And I would run through the golden autumn leaves...
Shrieking with delight
That simple sound lit up my parent’s eyes
Back then I didn’t know
It’s the little things in life that make it whole

Life’s about the little things, That love and laughter bring
It’s the everyday, the ordinary happenings
They’ll make you smile, They make life worthwhile
They’re the little things, Yeah the little things

I can smell the coffee that she’s making me...
And she’s singing out of tune cause she knows that I can hear
I love that she can be herself with me...
It takes my breath away
She’s my sunshine even when it rains
Now I know -It’s the little things in life that make it whole

Life’s about the little things That love and laughter bring
It’s the everyday, the ordinary happenings
They’ll make you smile They make life worthwhile
They’re the little things Yeah the little things

It’s holding hands, it’s a kiss goodnight
Sunday morning pillow fights
Chasing rainbows, sharing all our dreams .....
It’s the warm sunlight on your face
The peaceful ending of the day
The laughter of a child or a newborn baby’s cry ....

I see the twinkle in his eye, he dunks his biscuit in her tea
There’s a sweetness in her smile as she pretends she doesn’t see
They’ve been holding hands for all these years
Watching sunsets fade, knowing what the others ‘bout to say...
Yeah they know...
It’s the little things that make their love whole
Life’s about the little things
That love and laughter bring
It’s the everyday, the ordinary happenings
They’ll make you smile
They make life worthwhile
They’re the little things
If you look for it
You’ll find that special gift
In the little things
