I sat up,
Late last night,
Tryin' to find an answer for pain.
I started to smoke,
But then I decided,
That was part of this problem with pain.
I started drinkin',
But then I started thinkin',
What somebody, Said to me.
She said, "If you spend your lifetime,
Cuttin' your lifeline,
Where in the world will you be?"

(Chorus Refrain)
Lifetimes/Lifelines. Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ee.

I came home,
Late last night, Just to find myself all alone.
I turned on T.V., But it didn't grab me,
So I turned my radio on.
Someone was playin', And someone was sayin',
"Com'on, And listen to me!"
"If you spend your lifetime, Cuttin' your lifeline,
Where in the world will you be?"
Lifetimes/Lifelines. Ooo-oo-oo-oo-ee.

(Bridge)
I came home,
Late last night,
And wrote down the words to this song.
I was so tired,
Imagination fired,
And the chorus came along.
Now I aint' no teacher.
I'm certainly no preacher,
But baby won't you listen to me?
If you spend your lifetime, Cuttin' your lifeline,
Where in the world will you be?
Lifetimes/Lifelines. Ooo-oo-oo-oo-eee.

The melody was fun to sing. It has crescendos I enjoy. And philosophy. I always enjoy philosophy.

It has a refrain-type chorus, a single line ending each stanza.

The arrangement could be reworked, going to the bridge directly from Verse 1, repeating the bridge after Verse 2.
