So Called Life

Album: Where I Come From (2011)
  • Every mornin' when I get up
    Jet fuel in a coffee cup
    Lord knows I ain't givin' up
    Gonna take on the world today

    Sometimes it's green, green grass
    Other times it kicks my ass
    Half-full, half-empty glass
    Don't matter either way

    I'm gonna live the life that I'm gonna live
    It ain't what I thought it was
    But it is what it is, baby

    This ain't no rodeo
    No dog and pony show
    Ain't no roller-coaster ride.
    Ain't no highway
    Sure ain't no river, baby
    It's just my so called,
    Just my so called life

    Some days I own this town
    Other days it shoots me down
    As long as I'm still hangin' 'round
    I'm holdin' on to hope

    Faith is a powerful thing
    Chasin' after the big brass ring
    Might be a pocket full of jing-a-ling
    But there's one thing that I know

    Ya just gotta keep keepin' on doin' like ya do
    You look around when it's said and done
    And realize that it's true, baby

    This ain't no rodeo
    No dog and pony show
    Ain't no roller-coaster ride.
    Ain't no highway
    Sure ain't no river, baby
    It's just my so called,
    Just my so called life

    My so called

    This ain't no rodeo
    No dog and pony show
    Ain't no roller-coaster ride, yeah!
    Ain't no highway
    Sure ain't no river, baby
    It's just my so called,
    Just my so called life
