Changing lanes

a song i wrote a while back, i just entered it into a contest, so i thought i would post it here too..enjoy

a year ago she never would have known the turn her life would take
how could things be so different then they were then
a bump in the road her marriage was over
alone with her babies, afraid of what might become
how is she ever gonna make it

she picks up the phone and calls her momma
momma says chin up girl, time to change lanes
shes changing lanes lettin life take her in a new direction
shes changing lanes doing the best that she can

she takes hold of her life, regains control
staying strong for her children is the best way she knows
picking herself up is harderthen anything shes done
sometimes life is so hard

she picks up the phone and calls her momma
momma says chin up girl, time to change lanes
shes changing lanes, lettin life take her in a new direction
shes changing lanes doing the best that she can

shools not as easy as she remembers
real life sometimes gets inthe way of her studies
screaming kids and bills to pay
it all pays off when she has her independance
making a life her children can be proud of
the time for her to shine has come, she has changed lanes

Have you sent these lyrics into to possibles song writers? Let me look up some stuff for you, because it has the very good makings of a country song. :-)
