A Beautiful Life
As recorded by Everclear on Slow Motion Daydream
Tabbed by Kyle Pouliot (kj.pouliot@attbi.com)

I am more than impressed with this album, this song has
that classic everclear sound, the lyrics are amazing, and only
Art can personalize lyrics like these.  This song bears a striking
resemblence to "Learning How To Smile" mainly because of the strings.
I knew this song would be great when I heard the first line.

You seem to make the same mistakes everyday
Sometimes itís hard to open your eyes
You wanna be the only cake on the table
Yeah, you say you donít like surprises
You wanna find a pretty place you can stay
Yeah, you just donít want to live in LA

I really hate the way you push me away
I do not like it when you shut me out
I say I love you but I donít really know you
I wanna change ya but I donít know how
I wanna leave when it gets ugly and cold
I wanna leave but I got nowhere to go

(Chorus)

You seem to make the same mistakes all the time
Sometimes itís not so hard to understand why
You say you hate the things that you have done
Yeah, you have been running with your back to the sun
You wanna find a place you donít have to hide
You say youíre happy just to be alive!!!
