I wish my brain would operate instead of standing still.
It's all so complicated,
The thread of my own thoughts seems to be disappearing into what seems
To be a logical conclusion.

I guess I just ran out of ideas.
I've heard a million songs about this and that,
And they gave me satisfaction
But I see,
It's a Beautiful life.

Now comes the second verse and I have to at least keep the measures
Straight.
It's been a long time now and i'm really insecure about it all.
I guess I didn't like seeing all the things I saw, Who needs it?
It's been a little painful and I hope I don't like the pain,
Cause I'd hate to think of myself like that

'Cause I see,
It's a Beautiful life.
I like the old things, But I just can't give up the idea
Of trying something a little bit different,
Even if it's stupid

'Cause I see,
It's a Beautiful life.
Yes, I see,
It's a Beautiful life.
And I see,
It's a Beautiful life
