lyrics

A BEAUTIFUL LIFE by Greetings and Goodbyes

verse 1
we made some plans for the future, but they didn’t work out
we tried to live in the fast lane, but we had some doubt
oh would we just become so much like everyone?
we didn’t want to know
we thought, “let’s create our own world, a place that we’ll make home”

chorus 1
so we’re building a beautiful life,
we’re building a beautiful life
it’s clever and charming, lovely and darling, full of wonder and delight
what a life

verse 2
we bought a house in the city, on a tree-lined street
we dreamed of how we would make it a whimsical retreat
we said, “let’s paint it white to make the rooms look bright, and sand the wooden floors”
we knew this house would be better than all the ones before

chorus 2
‘cuz we’re building a beautiful life,
we’re building a beautiful life
it’s clever and charming, lovely and darling, full of wonder and delight
what a life

bridge
let’s raise up the curtains to a greater height
let’s put out the pillows with the purple stripes
let’s play all our records late into the night
let’s have a wonderful life
let’s dress up in style for the gathering
we’ll play the piano and the tambourine
we’ll tell all our stories late into the night
let’s have a wonderful life

chorus 3
we’re building a beautiful life,
we’re building a beautiful life
it’s clever and charming, lovely and darling, full of wonder and delight
it’s sweetly orchestrated, something we created,
sculpted like a work of art
it’s finely decorated, carefully curated,
please don’t let it fall apart
what a life, what a life, what a life, oh-oh-oh-oh
what a life, what a life, what a life, oh-oh-oh-oh
