Lyrics
I've been a stand-in, a stunt man
I've takin' some falls
Troubles, I've had my share
But one has to learn how to run before walkin'
'Round breathin' that million air

Take it from me 'cause I found
If you leave it then somebody else is bound
To find that treasure, that moment of pleasure
When yours, it could have been

Some people never find it
Some, only pretend, but me:
I just want to live happily ever after every now and then

I've been in vans and in bands
On and through stages
One thing I can conclude
One has to learn havin' fun is just smilin' through
Those Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
Take it from me 'cause I've found
If you leave it then somebody else is bound
To find that treasure, that moment of pleasure
When yours, it could have been

Some people never find it
Some, only pretend, but me:
I just want to live happily ever after every now and then

Some people never find it
Some, only pretend, but me, hell:
I just want to live happily ever after every now and then
