Back to Awful Beautiful Life lyrics

Awful Beautiful Life

I woke up early with a poundin' in my head
I'd been out the night before with all my friends
A little worried, kinda wonderin' what I did
I said, Lord, please forgive me for my sins

My wife wanted to kill me, but she tried to save me first
"You're goin' if I have to drag your butt to church"

I love this crazy, tragic
Sometimes almost magic
Awful, beautiful life

I read the hymns and kinda sorta sang along
Made it through the Sunday sermon wide awake
We met the family for dinner at our home
Drank some beer, watched a game and cooked some steaks

My little brother had a big fight with his wife
And my poor mother sat between 'em both all night

I love this crazy, tragic
Sometimes almost magic
Awful, beautiful life

Come on

We said a prayer for cousin Michael in Iraq
We're all aware that he may never make it back
We talked about the way we missed his stupid jokes
And how he loved to be a soldier more than most

I laid in bed that night and thought about the day
And how my life is like a roller coaster ride
The ups and downs and crazy turns along the way
It'll throw you off if you don't hold on tight

You can't really smile until you've shed some tears
I could die today or I might live on for years

I love this crazy, tragic
Sometimes almost magic
Awful, beautiful life

I love this crazy, tragic
Sometimes almost magic
Awful, beautiful life

Alright

It's a beautiful life
Awful, beautiful, life
I love this life, it's a beautiful life
I love this life, it's a beautiful life
