A Wonderful Life

Album: Painkillers (2016)
  • Most of this life's been a drag of a high
    And lows like a blow in a paid thrown title fight
    Most of my sins were born in a kiss on a night like this
    Calling all lonely hearts

    Don't you want a life like we saw on the picture show?
    So come on, give me something, come on, keep me up all night
    You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy
    I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
    I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life

    My love seems that it goes from a dream
    To a crash and a roll, just shaking up everyone
    Maybe there's more than the treasures we secure
    That become heavy chains, to sink us in tidal waves

    And all I could do is take you from the circus show
    So come on give me something, come on keep me up all night

    You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy
    I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
    I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life

    And all my nights they always end the same (with the blacktop, blacktop)
    Coming from behind
    It's just the age-old game from the living dead buzzing in my head
    They keep me up all night

    You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy
    I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
    I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life
    (All my sins were born in a kiss on a night like this calling all lonely hearts)
