about

Musician and mixer, Ryan Oliver, is all over this track. He played the acoustic and electric guitars and got amongst it on the bass as well. Then he did the final mix. Is there anything the guy can't do!?

What talent scouts Taxi.com said about the song:

"The melody is really engaging. Rhythm section is really solid. Absolutely love the bass playing."

lyrics

I said that she was pretty
The moment she was gone
But love will never get me
Well, even I was wrong

I thought that I would take her
But she has got me by the …
And I am weak as the day is long
And suddenly I love my life

I thought my friends were honest
And I was to be married
To a gang of single boys
Who turned out to be not much like me

Well I thought that I could stand up
But I fell down to the floor
I thought I was in for the night
You kicked me out and you slammed the door

I said, boy oh boy
I said, boy oh boy
I said, boy oh boy
Suddenly I love my life

Well I thought I’d met my match
But like so many others
She just fell, undone
And I just passed her by

So I can rule the world now
And no one here can touch me
But pride became my tripwire
And I fell, happily

I said, boy oh boy
I said, boy oh boy
I said, boy oh boy
Suddenly I love my life

Well, I thought my friends were honest
And I was to be married
To a gang of single boys
Who turned out to be not much like me at all

I thought that I could stand up
But I fell down to the floor
I thought I was in for the night
You kicked me out and you slammed the door

And I said, boy oh boy
I said, boy oh boy
I am face down in your gutter
And suddenly I love my life

I said, boy oh boy oh boy
Boy oh boy oh boy
I’ve got a mouthful of your garden
And suddenly I love my life

I said, boy oh boy oh boy
I said, boy oh boy oh boy
I said boy oh boy
Suddenly I love my life
Yeah
