  • (Jo Dee Messina/Mark Selby)
    I used to think that life was all about the joneses
    Trying to find a way to just keep up some how
    I had to have it, do it, be it, had to own it
    A little secret that I finally figured out
    We spend so much time climbing up the ladder
    And then we're missing all the things that really matter

    I've got my two feet on the ground
    Breathin' in and breathin' out
    Oh yeah
    Life is good
    I'm gonna grab on to today
    Live every minute in the way I know I should
    Life is good
    I like to move, I like to run, I like to get it done
    Or I can stay home on the couch and watch tv
    Give me sunshine, give me rain, it makes no difference to me
    It's all the same, all the same to me
    Call me simple, call me crazy
    I believe that it's all in what we make yah

    Repeat [Chorus:]
    Call me simple, call me crazy
    I believe that it's all in what we make yah

    Repeat [Chorus:] (out) Writer/s: JO DEE MESSINA, MARK O. SELBY
