Come in, babe Across these purple fields The sun has sunk behind you Across these purple fields Is speaking deviated truths That idiot-boy in the corner Come on, admit it, babe It's a wonderful life If you can find it If you can find it If you can find it It's a wonderful life that you bring Ooh it's a wonderful thing Speak our secret into your hands And hold it in between Plunge your hands into the water But the air that we breathe There will be nothing between us, baby Don't cry And drown it in the sea It's a wonderful, wonderful life If you can find it If you can find it If you can find it It's a wonderful life that you bring It's a wonderful, wonderful thing We can build our dungeons in the air And sit and cry the blues We can stomp across this world With nails hammered through our shoes We can join that troubled chorus We got nothing much to lose Who criticise and accuse It don't matter much If you can find it But this wonderful life And when you find it It's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful thing And when you find it It's a wonderful life that you bring With our lives we must defend Sometimes our secrets are all we've got Sometimes the air between us, babe Sometimes it's wise to lay down your gloves Is unbearably thin And just give in Come in, come in Come in, come in To this wonderful life If you can find it It's a wonderful life that you bring And if you find it It's a wonderful, wonderful thing It's a wonderful life It's a wonderful life
