It's A Wonderful Life
   ------Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution

Once again I wake up alone on the wrong side of my bed
And once again you begin your dancing nakedly on the right side of my head
It’s for a lack of better words that I can hardly speak my soul
And I’m feeling what I’m feeling when I’m feeling when it’s time to lose control, my love

And once again we’re off to war
But I can’t agree with what we’re fighting for
And that’s not all, because every time she smiles I see her soul
When I smile what a wonderful life

It’s true I used to try
But then I gave up, I learned it doesn’t really matter
What I do ain’t enough to appease or to please
All my well meaning deeds seem to all go up in smoke
And every time I look into these smoke filled skies I wonder what she’s doing, why I volunteered to die
But tonight I will fight for my life so I might see my wife again

I explained to her that I’d be back
When I gave my word that the fighting wouldn’t last
But despite my pact, I know that every breath I draw might be my last
And I smile, it’s been a wonderful life

Goddamn, another summer in the city and
I never seen a girl look so pretty as you
When you smile oh you’re wild for a while
I was hoping I might see you again
And I know that everybody is willing to go
And I find I’ll turn it all and leave on a dime
If I leave tonight, screw what’s right, I can make it home by dawn

And I was told, “Boy, prepare for war!”
But they failed to mention what I’d be fighting for
So I fight for this:
The fact that as I pass away, I’ll feel her kiss
When I smile, what a wonderful life
Me oh my, what a wonderful life
Oh, to die for such a wonderful life
