  1. It's A Good Life

From the recording SPIRIT OF THE ROOM

Lyrics

I’ve been weak and I’ve been wasted, I’ve been stuck within the prison of my mind
I’ve been broke and I’ve been busted, I’ve been dusted by some women in my time
It all adds up to nothin cuz I know that someday somethin’s gotta give
And every time I stumble I can stand again and find the will to live


It’s a good life but I know sometimes it doesn’t come that easy
It’s a good life but I know at times, the price is hardly free

I’ve been hassled and mistreated, I’ve been picked apart, threatened and abused
I’ve been dumped and I’ve been cheated on, left for dead, lonesome and confused
It all adds up to nothing cuz I know that someday somethin’s gotta give
And every time I stumble I can stand again and find the will to live

It’s a good life but I know sometimes it doesn’t come that easy
It’s a good life but I know at times, the price is hardly free

Makin love and makin friends and makin time to get yourself together
Gettin by and gettin drunk and gettin high to throw it all away
Never mind your troubles or they’ll follow you wherever you may go
It’s a good, good life

I’ve been beaten by the bottle and its sad to say that I have nearly drowned
And I’ve lost so many battles well, I guess that I’m beginning to lose count
And I’ve seen so many sad things and I’ve shed so many teardrops
I’ve done so many bad things and I’ve thrown away the good things that I found
I’ve met so many people and I’ve listened to their stories
I keep them in my memory and I try to see their faces when I’m down

It’s a good life but I know sometimes it doesn’t come that easy
It’s a good life but I know at times, the price is hardly free

Makin love and makin friends and makin time to get yourself together
Gettin by and gettin drunk and gettin high to throw it all away
Never mind your troubles or they’ll follow you wherever you may go
It’s a good, good life
