lyrics

SUCH A GOOD LIFE

I’d wake up slowly in the bedroom upstairs
I would hardly hear him downstairs
I’d try to go on with my last dream
I would wonder if it’s sunny outside
I would imagine him drawing plans of the house
I would smell the coffee in the kitchen
I would look for my glasses
I’d think about getting up and just would not

It could be, yes it could be
It could be such a good life x2

I would try to make breakfast without any noise
I’d even avoid using the coffee machine
I would look once again at her pictures on the wall
When she had a life without me around
I would sat on a chair with a cup in my hand
I would think about a new song to write
I would turn off the light
When the morning sun comes through the window

It could be, yes it could be
It could be such a good life x 2

I would worry a bit about the children
I would plan a brilliant future for them
I would think about the lawn that needs to be mowed
And he would stand at the door in the half-light

I would sneak back in bed, I wouldn’t move I wouldn’t speak
I would make my skin burning on hers
I would hope for a new love
I’d dream of building a past with you

Une certaine idée du bonheur...
