It's a wonderful life, a wonderful life
Traversed in tears from the heavens
My heart is a melodrama, a melodrama in fact
Set alight by echoes of pain 24/7, 24/7

I dream, I smile
I walk, I cry
I dream, I smile
I walk, I cry

You might not say that it's a wonderful world
And it's a wonderful life
And it's a wonderful day
Just as yesterday

But I won't complain
No, I won't complain
Though my good days are far gone
They'll surely come back one morn
So I won't complain, no no

My mind is a mirror
A reflection only known to me
And for those who hate me, the more you hate me, the more you help me
And those who love me, the more you love me, the more you hurt me

And when I go to bed in the night
I see some children in the light
Fighting unknown shadows behind my mother's back
And although I don't understand my dreams
I know somewhere
There's hope, there's hope, there's hope somewhere
There's hope

I dream, I smile
I walk, I cry
I dream, I smile
I walk, I cry

You might not say that it's a wonderful world
And it's a wonderful life
And it's a wonderful day
Just as yesterday

But I won't complain
I won't complain, no no
Brr no, brr no, I won't complain
No, I won't complain

Though my good days are far gone
They'll surely come back one morn
So I won't, I won't complain

Though my good days are far gone
They'll surely come back one morn
So I won't, I won't complain
