It's a Great Life

(Pat Robinson)



Been together since we were ten
Stuck together through thick and thin
We don't know any other way
Just used to living from day to day

Life is always ... what we make it
You'd better reach out ... reach out and take it
Can't be afraid to reach for the stars
Out there somewhere, wherever we are

Oh, you know it ain't easy
Sometimes it's just plain hard
After a while, you start to believe that
What you do is what you are

It's a great life ... if we don't weaken
Gotta make our own ... Garden of Eden
Bright lights, I'm no beacon
You aren't gettin' soft on me are you?

We know our weaknesses, know our strengths
The best we can do ... is do what it takes
Can't get lazy ... or lose that edge
Got to keep runnin' ... in the red

It all begins in room 106
With a handful of dirty tricks
Forget the fiction ... face the facts
It all ends up on the railroad tracks

Oh, you know it ain't easy
Sometimes it's just plain hard
After a while, you start to believe that
What you do is what you are

It's a great life ... if we don't weaken
Gotta make our own ... Garden of Eden
Bright lights, I'm your beacon
I'd like to tame her wilderness ...
