A friend of mine recently ?reminded me of the band, Living Colour. They were a punk funk band that received best new artist in 1989, then disappearred. While I was reviewing their songs, I remembered this song. This song literally changed my life.?
I had always lived with the idea that things would change or get better. I thought that when (fill in the blank) happened, I would be happy. ?Listening to this song over and over again while working out, I realized this is the life I have. It was a gentle, or not so gentle, reminder to get on with things.?
I left my long term boyfriend, enrolled in graduate school and never looked back.?
Today, I wanted to share with you the lyrics to this song. ?I don't think I could say this any better. The link will take to you listen to the song.
This Is The Life?
In another life You might have been a genius In another life You might have been a star In another life Your face might have been perfect In another life You'd drive a better car
In another life All your jokes are funny In another life Your heart is free from fear In another life You make a lot of money In this other life Everything is clear
In another life You're always the hero In another life You always win the game In another life No one ever cheats you In another life You never have to change
In another life Your friends never desert you In another life You never have to cry In another life No one ever hurts you In this other life Your loved-ones never die
But this is the life you have This is the life you have This is the life you have This is the life
In another life You're always the victim In another life You're always the thief In another life You are always lonely In this other life There is no relief
In your real life Treat it like it's special In your real life Try to be more kind In your real life Think of those that love you In this real life Try to be less blind
