Song of the Day
February 21, 2017
Once again I wake up alone on the wrong side of my bed
And once again you begin your dancing nakedly on the right side of my head
It's for a lack of better words that I can hardly speak my soul
And I'm feeling what I'm feeling when I'm feeling when it's time to lose control, my love

And once again we're off to war
But I can't agree with what we're fighting for
And that's not all because every time she smiles I see her soul
When I smile - what a wonderful life

It's true I used to try, but then I gave up
I learned it doesn't really matter what I do ain't enough to
Appease or to please, all my well meaning deeds
Seem to all go up in smoke

And every time I look into these smoke filled skies
I wonder what she's doing, why I volunteered to die
But tonight I will fight for my life
So I might see my wife again

I explained to her that I'd be back
When I gave my word that the fighting wouldn't last
But despite my pact, I know that every breath I draw might be my last
And I smile, it's been a wonderful life

God damn, another summer in the city and
I've never seen a girl look so pretty as
You when you smile, oh, you're wild for a while
I was hoping I might see you again

And I know that everyone is willing to go
And I find I'll turn it all and leave on a dime
If I leave tonight, screw what's right
I can make it home by dawn

And I was told, "Boy, prepare for war"
But they failed to mention what I'd be fighting for
So I fight for this: the fact that as I pass away I'll feel her kiss
And I'll smile - what a wonderful life
Me, oh my, what a wonderful life
Oh, to die for such a wonderful life!
