PostSubject: A Wonderful Life lyrics   Thu Dec 10, 2015 5:06 pm

Anyone want to give it a try?

Latest version:

Most of this life's been a drag of a high
and lows like a blow in a paid thrown title fight.
Most of my sins were born in a kiss on a night like this
Calling all lonely hearts.

Don't you want a life like we saw on the picture show?
So come on give me something, come on keep me up all night
You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy.
I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life

My love seems like it goes from a dream
to a crash and a roll, just shaking up everyone
Maybe there's more than the treasures we secure
that become heavy chains, to sink us in tidal waves

And all I could do is take you from the circus show.
So come on give me something, come on keep me up all night.

You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy.
I want a life on fire, going mad with desire.
I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life.

And all my nights they always end the same (with the blacktop, blacktop)
coming from behind.
It's just the age-old game from the living dead buzzing in my head,
they keep me all night.

You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy.
I want a life on fire, going mad with desire.
I don't wanna survive, I want a wonderful life.
(All my sins were born in a kiss on a night like this calling all lonely hearts)
I want a wonderful life.

And lows like a blow in a paid thrown title fight
Most of my sins were born in a kiss on a night like this
Calling all lonely hearts

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

Don't you want like a life like we saw on the picture show? (whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh)
So come on give me something and come on keep me up all night

You say, my baby, yeah all this time in between drives me crazy
I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
I don't want to survive, I want a wonderful life

I want a wonderful life

Modern love seems that it goes from a dream
To a crash and a roll, just shaking up everyone
Maybe there's more than the treasures we secure
That become heavy chains to sink us in tidal waves

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

And all I could do is take you from the circus show (whoa oh oh oh oh)
So come on give me something and come on keep me up all night

You say, my baby, yeah all this time in between drives me crazy
I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
I don't want to survive, I want a wonderful life

And all my nights, they always end the same
(With the blacktop, blacktop) Coming from behind
It's just the age old game from the living dead
Buzzin' in my head, they keep me up all night

You say, my baby, all this time in between drives me crazy
I want a life on fire, going mad with desire
I don't want to survive, I want a wonderful life

(All our sins are born in a kiss on a night like this, calling all lonely hearts)

I want a wonderful life

(All our sins are born in a kiss on a night like this, calling all lonely hearts)

I want a wonderful life

I hear: They keep me "UP" all night.

So come on give me something "AND" come on keep me up all night.

My love seems "AND" it goes from a dream (I clearly hear the word "and").
