Beautiful Life

Charted: 8
  • She sees the world through TV screens
    All of her friends in magazines
    But everyday she lives a broken dream, yeah
    Making her own reality
    There's lots of make-up on her face
    To cover up an empty space
    But there's a lot behind those big blue eyes
    She just don't realize

    Everybody's gone and lost their mind
    It's just the days we live in
    Most of the time

    Get up off the dark
    Open up your eyes
    You'll discover there's a world outside (world outside)
    To fix a broken heart
    You have to try
    Pick it up, pick it up
    It's a beautiful life
    Beautiful life, beautiful life
    It's a beautiful life, beautiful life

    He got his fortune on the plate
    But all that money won't change fate
    He's got 6 zeroes but no one to share it with
    No friends, no girl, no one in the world

    Everybody's gone and lost their mind
    It's just the days we live in
    Most of the time, yeah

    Get up off the dark (get up off the dark)
    Open up your eyes (open up your eyes)
    You'll discover there's a world outside (World outside)
    To fix a broken heart (To fix a broken heart)
    You have to try
    Pick it up, pick it up
    It's a beautiful life
    Beautiful life, beautiful life.
    It's a beautiful life, beautiful life (beautiful life)

    We are not so different, you and I
    'Cause everybody's got a place to hide
    But it's just the things we live in (things we live in), hmm
    Most of the time

    Get up off the dark (get up off the dark)
    Open up your eyes
    You'll discover there's a world outside (there's a world outside)
    To fix a broken heart (to fix a broken heart)
    You have to try
    Pick it up, pick it up
    It's a beautiful life (beautiful life)
    Beautiful life, beautiful life, beautiful life
    It's a beautiful life (here's a beautiful life)
    Beautiful life, oh ooh, beautiful life, beautiful life Writer/s: Blair Dreelan, Jo Lawrence, Jo Perry, Jon Lilygreen, Jon Macguire, BLAIR LEE JOEY DREELAN, JOHN LILYGREEN, JOHN MAGUIRE, JOSEPH MARK LAWRENCE
