Reality

Album: Hemingway's Whiskey (2010)
Charted: 62
  • For me it's a beach bar
    Or on a boat underneath the stars
    Or with my band up on a stage
    For a while everything's okay

    For some it's a fast car
    Moonshine in a mason jar
    And everybody has their way
    Somehow to escape

    Reality, yeah, sometimes life
    Ain't all that it's cracked up to be
    So let's take a chance and live this fantasy
    'Cause everybody needs to break free from reality

    Yeah, some days it's a bitch, it's a bummer
    We need a rock and roll show in the summer
    To let the music take us away
    Take our minds to a better place

    Where we feel that sense of freedom
    Leave our worries behind, we don't need 'em
    All we need is a sunny day and an old tailgate
    And we'll escape

    Reality, yeah, sometimes life
    Ain't all that it's cracked up to be
    So let's take a chance and live this fantasy
    'Cause everybody needs to break free from reality

    Everybody raise your hands and voice tonight
    Set your soul free, let's take a carpet ride
    We'll leave it all behind

    Reality, yeah, sometimes life
    Ain't all that it's cracked up to be
    So let's take a chance and live this fantasy
    'Cause everybody needs to break free from reality

    Come on everybody, break free
    Come on everybody, break free Writer/s: BRETT JAMES, KENNETH CHESNEY
