The Lift – It Is What It Is lyrics

(Matt Docter, Jason Docter, Todd Beeson, Chris O'Brien)

Life is not perfect it is perfectly what it is.
Sometimes it goes pop
Sometimes it's gonna sink and fizz.

Feeling that I'm on to something
Placing all my bets and wondering
Will I win it all or lose the house?

Chorus 1
It is what it is what it what it is what it is. (Repeat)

Running late, why is everybody in my way?
Doesn't matter what I do, doesn't matter what the hell I say

Angry and I fucking know it
Burning face can't hide but show it.
This heaviness has really got me down.

Chorus 2
It is what it is what it what it is what it is. (Repeat)

Life is not perfect it is perfectly what it is.
Life is not perfect it is perfectly this

Attitude may need some dusting
Everything's not all or nothing
I may be stuck but will I stick it out?

Chorus 3
It is What it is what it is what it is what it is.
