lyrics

[Verse 1]
Love-your-life, cause I love mine
Despite the fact that I have yet to find
Someone to spend my nights with, spend my life with
Reach new heights with, I don’t mean get high with
My ideal chick? 5'4", 5'6"
Nice lips, hips, nerdy glasses - both thick
A romantic; hopeless, ladies make me lose focus
Fear’s my opponent, that’s why I don’t approach this
Life is too short, baby, but I’m not from Oakland
So I eat, sleep and repeat like the band Copeland
Fuck a headliner, I’ll be the one that opens
Spend the rest of my night lookin’ for skins, (Rex) Grossman
I’m hollow like a bottle, spirit’s not broken
‘Cause life’s is an arcade, kid you need more tokens
I stay up late nights, trying to write more poems
Since I know I’ll sleep when I’m dead, Clive Owen

[Chorus]
This is how I’m livin’ with the life I’ve been given
And I don’t think about what I’m missing
Because this is how I’m livin’ with the life I’ve been given
And I could give a fuck what you’re thinking,

This is how I’m livin’ with the life I’ve been given
And here’s a toast to what you’re drinkin’
Because this is how I’m livin’ with the life I’ve been given
And I could give a fuck what you’re thinking,
Fuck what you’re thinking, thinking, thinking, thinking

[Verse 2]
And I’m thinking, should I or should I not be drinking?
But I’m not thinking, which explains why this ship’s sinking
And I’m not Costeau and I’m not Thoreau
But my words are oceans, see how deep they go
Ground control; Major Tom
The earth’s blue like my mood
And there’s nothing I can do
But live life how I chose to
And I choose to - be a better man
Life’s a game of cards and I won’t fold this hand
Even if I’m on tilt, with an ace up my sleeve
I'll never let another person get the best of me
I will never let another person be the death of me
Only my nerves, that’s what Dallas Green told me
Won’t drink my troubles away, I’ll sing my troubles away
Because when the music hits, (yeah) you feel no pain
Love don’t live here anymore, I know that sounds strange
Don’t bring me your love, cause I don’t wanna wait in vain
