lyrics

This is the life
I can’t remember strife anymore
It’s a murmuring in the back of my head
This is the life

Yeah this is the life
Fear is only an hour away
And that’s just enough time for the span of a game
This is the life

I thought it was a wax candle
Burning at a steady pace
But now I do what I feel like doing
And I’m beating up old clichés
I’m eating up papier-mâché
And I’m reading a play a day

This is the life
All I think about is how many books
That I’ll never read even if I get very old
This is the life

So this is the life
I prefer the sound of simple things
In a silver frame trimmed with apples and vines
This is the life

I thought it was a wax candle
Burning at a steady pace
But now I do what I feel like doing
And I’m beating up old clichés
I’m eating up papier-mâché
And I’m reading a play a day

Take me to the Hagia Sophia
If you don’t let me go
I will engage you in a tantrum
Don’t think I won’t
Please take me to the Hagia Sophia

This is the life
I’m sorry I will never say that again
It got out of me it was just a flash in the pan
