The Good Life

Album: Blurred Lines (2013)
  • In my hometown,
    There is no street with my name, no crown
    I am no king and the kids they don't know my name
    It's like nothing has changed
    Life takes you up and down
    And life spins you all around
    The good life, I know I made it the good life
    I know I've made it with you

    In my hometown,
    My friends are saying "What happened to you?"
    "We thought you made it,
    And you'd be driving Bentley's
    And living the good life for us all"
    My father says "When will you make it?"
    My mother says "He'll learn to fake it"
    But I'm not you and you're not me
    But I'm as good as I can be baby

    Life takes you up and down,
    And life spins you all around
    The good life, I know I made it the good life
    I know I've made it
    And life takes you up and down,
    And life spins you all around
    The good life, I know I made it the good life
    I know I've made it with you

    Oh I know that this the good life
    I can see
    Oh I know that this the good life
    Oh I know that this the good life
    I can see
    I wanna live

    And I say, I know I made it the good life
    Open your eyes
    Your friends, your lover, your soul, your mind
    It's, it's right there baby
    All the time it goes like

    Life takes you up and down,
    And life spins you all around
    The good life, I know I made it the good life
    I know I've made it
    And life takes you up and down,
    And life spins you all around
    The good life, I know I made it the good life
    I know I've made it with you
    Oh I know that this the good life
    I can see it baby
    I know that this the good life
    I wanna live the good life
    Oh I know that this the good life
    I can see it baby
    Now I see it baby
    I wanna live the good life Writer/s: SEAN K. HALL, CHRISTOPHER STEWART, ROBIN THICKE
