lyrics

LIFE OF SUCCESS by Greetings and Goodbyes

verse 1
I’ve tried the advice, I’ve done all the steps
I followed the plan, for a life of success
you gotta make good grades at the grammar school
to go to a college where you’ll be approved
you get a new job making money fast
and then you’re on the perfect path

chorus 1
but I gave all my best for a life of success
and I traded in my soul, climbing the ladders chasing gold
but I’m still not impressed with a life of success
‘cuz the things that I really need, that life has never given to me

verse 2
I watch what I eat, get eight hours of sleep
wake up and exercise, but I don’t feel satisfied
I should get a promotion with higher pay
buy a bigger house with designer taste
take a vacation if I’m feeling stressed,
the experts all suggest

chorus 2
but I gave all my best for a life of success
and I traded in my soul, climbing the ladders chasing gold
but I’m still not impressed with a life of success
‘cuz the things that I really need, that life has never given to me

bridge
the story I was sold, the tale that I was told
says all you really need is The American Dream
where bigger’s always best, don’t compromise for less
where wealth is how you win, and fortune is your friend
the story I was sold, the tale that I was told
says all you really need is The American Dream
yeah all you really need is The American Dream

chorus 3
but I gave all my best for a life of success
and I traded in my soul, climbing the ladders chasing gold
but I’m still not impressed with a life of success
‘cuz the things that I really need, that life has never given to me
