about

Totally remixed version of the track from The Light Filled Corner.

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
