Do It All Again

Music and words by Kyle Dillingham

She turned and kissed me in the rain
I missed the bus; I took a train
I wondered how I’d catch the plane
I ran a mile; I felt the pain
The taxi driver in the mirror
Says one more hour to there from here
Why should I leave? Is that a tear?
The answer well it’s surely clear

I’ve never been anywhere
That I didn’t want to be
I’ve never seen anything
That I didn’t want to see
I’ve traveled so far away
And each time I wished I’d stayed
God grant me this that I pray
Just one more day, please send it my way
So I can do it all again

I’ve danced until I fell in love
That evening came from up above
I’ve laughed until I cried and still
It seems I’ve never had my fill
And I’ve been swimming in the night
The lake was cold; I held her tight
We talked until the morning light
Then I watched the robin take her flight

Cause I’ve never done anything
That I didn’t want to do
I’m blessed by each open door
That I’ve ever wandered through
Each moment has changed my life
Like the day I met my wife
And even counting the bad, or when I was sad
It’s the best life I’ve had
And I would do it all again

My soul collects the right and wrong
My spirit’s weak; my flesh is strong
But thank God when you see me
You see the sum of all three

Cold water upon my face
Nothing else that can replace…
Warm sunshine; I close my eyes
Under Oklahoma skies
I think of the plans I made
Like the time I wished I’d stayed
And then I found one more day
Just like I’d pray, God sent it my way
So I could do it all again
So I could do it all again
So I could do it all again
Now I can do it all again
