Song Description

This is a song about gratitude. It's about enjoying life and appreciating the miracles - big and small - happening all around us every day - making our lives richer and happier. To be sure, there's still way too much human hardship and suffering, and as the song says "I know we can solve it - we just have to evolve a bit." We may not be able to control or hasten evolution, but we can try to appreciate the world and our lives day to day.

Lyrics

Intro - Em - C - G - D - Em - C - D

........Em..................C.......................G.....................D
This is a time of miracles. They happen every day
Em..................C........................G..........................B7
Evidence empirical says It's meant to be that way.
Em..................................B7..............Em.....................A
But we don't need a miracle to appreciate this world.
...............................G..............D....C....D....C
Just keep your mind and eyes open wide
..............G........D....C..D...Em
It's a good time to be alive.


.........Em.........................C.............G......................D
Computers and the Internet. Airplanes and cars.
Em......................C......................G ..............B7
Life-saving medicines and Rovers on Mars.
Em..................B7............................Em.......................A
Dictators toppling and there's cameras in our phones.
G..............D......C...D..C..............G.......D.....C...D...Em.........G
What's next to arrive? It's a great time to be alive



G..........................D......................Am7....Am7 ish
True all these good things are happening.
..................F.................C........................G
But it's clear that things could be better.
...............Em.......................D...............C...................Em
There's way too much bloodshed, hunger and pain
Em7.................................................B7
I know we could solve it - We just need to evolve a bit.

Em..C..G...D...Em...D


Em......................C.........................G....................D
Hands on the steering wheel - Eyes on the road
Em.....................................C.....................G........................D
I don't know what's a-comin' - It's a brand-new episode.
Em..............................B7....................Em........................A
I know we're on a journey and It doesn't matter where.
G..........D....C...G..C.................Em.....D.....C...D...Em
Just enjoy the ride - It's a good time to be alive.

C...G...D...Em...C...D...Em
