Life Is So Beautiful

~ For friends who have been there for me over the years

My heart is so weary. My will is so weak.
If it weren’t for our friendship, I’d fall into sorrow
And forget how to speak.
But our laughter’s like music—it drains off the pain.
Before it can drown me, I let love surround me, and I can breathe again.

And that’s why life is so beautiful to me.
Oh, life is so beautiful to me.
Yes, life is so beautiful to me.
Brings me all I need.

This pain won’t go nowhere. It lingers in me.
Sunk deep in my bones, won’t leave me alone,
Like I’ll never be free.
But your smile, so simple, brings me such relief.
I let go of the battles, hold onto what matters, renew my belief

That’s why life is so beautiful to me.
Life is so beautiful to me.
Oh, life is so beautiful to me.
Brings me all I need.

Woah, oh, oh, oh, oh, woah, oh
Woah, oh, oh, oh, oh, woah, oh

So come sit by the window. Come and talk with me.
If I were a songbird waiting for morning, you’d be my wings.
Love brings the sunrise. Love dances in the trees.
Love falls with the rain. Love calls us home again,
And kisses us with the breeze.

And that’s why life is so beautiful to me.
Oh, life is so beautiful to me.
Yes, life is so beautiful to me.
Brings me all I need.
