This is the Life lyrics


This is the Life


Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder
Each one better than before

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So you're heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door
But nobody's in and nobody's home 'til four
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you're gonna go and where you're gonna sleep tonight

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

I played this song to myself at 1 am last night 3 times on repeat because I’d just rediscovered and I cried every time it repeated because I have such a clear memory of dancing around to this in the living room as a kid and I kept thinking how much I wanted to go back to 2007 when everything was so much easier and different to now

I've been literally been looking for this song for about 8 year, I'm not kidding. I remember when I was young listening to this song in the car and after that I couldn't find it and this song has been haunting me for 8 years now and finally I'm relieved

Well I guess that nobody cares but this period of my life I'm in love with someone that I can't have. I am in love with him and I never expected this to happen now, that I have to be really focused on my studies. I fell in love with him at the very first time we talked even if I lied to myself thousand of times , trying to convince my heart that I don't even like him. I have tried many times to tell him how much I love him , but I never made it unfortunately. And do you know why? Because i'm scared, I'm really scared that if I tell him the truth about my feelings I'm gonna loose him. And it sounds so damn crazy but I really prefer to be close to him even friendly from not to be with him at all.
The damn distance separates us and I'm sure that he doesn't even like me. He is so damn handsome and nice, why would he choose someone like me? And even if he does , sooner or later he 's gonna fall in love with someone else, someone prettier.
I never expected that I will fall in love with someone who cares so much about a girl's appearance, those people used to disgust me and they still do , but yes I fell in love with him and now I'm desperate.
He doesn't even like me and I know that because that's what always happens. The people I fall in love with me always choose someone else to be wit h , and it's such a pity because if they gave me only one chance to show them how much I love them , I would be able to make them the happiest people in the world. But, anyway this is life , and I want this song to be always connected in my heart and soul ,with Nikos.
This is life, enjoy.

I was a child when the first time I listened to this song . Years later today I've found this by accident. Like meeting a childhood friend. I'm older, the world is uglier, but it's always worth to live. Have a nice day.
