Lyrics

The Good Life
Words and Music: Lenny Lee / © 2005

verse
When I look back on younger years
and the places I might be
There came a whisper to my ear
and love like I had never seen
Like the wind you carried me, tenderly
I?m sure I?d seen your face in a dream

With all those demons at my heels
and nothing useful left to say
I could see how that made you feel
and still you swept my blues away
as we learned to drive the dream that?s - you and me
the day you blew away the masquerade

chorus
I wink - you smile
we walk for a while
the veil?s been stripped away
You see - this dream
is much more than it seems
we?re living the good life

verse
And now I long for nothing more
than the laughter of a child
or to sit with you right here
as you caress me with your smile
We?ve found everything we need - you and me
so come and take my hand now - let?s call it a day

chorus
I wink - you smile
we walk for a while
the veil?s been stripped away
You see - this dream
is much more than it seems
we?re living the good life

bridge
Sometimes I can?t believe that this is all real
did I wake up in someone else?s life
sometimes I can?t understand this master plan
so I sit and I stare at this winning hand - oh yeah

chorus
I wink - you smile
we walk for a while
the veil?s been stripped away
You see - this dream
is much more than it seems
we?re living the good life

We?ve weathered the winters - we?re still standing here together
living the good life
We take what they give - and it only makes us stronger in the end
living the good life
A child is calling - my spirit soars
living the good life
Now we?ve got this chance to relive the summer of love
living the good life
