OneRepublic – Good Life lyrics

[Verse:]

Woke up in London yesterday
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
Don't really know how I got here
I got some pictures on my phone

New names and numbers that I don't know
Address to places like Abbey Road
Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want
We're young enough to say

[Chorus:]

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

[Verse 2:]

To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L. A. They don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Col-or-ado

Sometimes there's airplanes I can' t jump out
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
We are god of stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about

[Bridge 1]

When you're happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in

[Bridge 2]

Hopelessly
I feel like there might be something that I'll miss
Hopelessly
I feel like the window closes oh so quick
Hopelessly
I'm taking a mental picture of you now
'Cuz hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about

[Chorus:]

[Verse 2:]

    Life may be challenging at times, but as god lets you know, be happy with all of his blessings. If life wasn't challenging and difficult at times, then you wouldn't appreciate the good times ("when you're happy like a fool, let it take you oever. When everything is out, you gotta take it in... The hope is we hve so much to feel good about. ") count your blessings; don't take them for granted, but instead, recognize them and be forever greatful, because you never know if or when another blessing will knock at your door.
