Ignight, My Life

Gmi Gmi D7 D7b2 Eb Eb D D7

Doctor tells me to find a new hobby
Because the next time might not be so lucky
Did you ever stop to think that might’ve been the plan all along
Gotta live this life ‘til the limits to start to fall
Every time you ask me to stop and reflect
Grab an instrument and I’ll begin to fret
My way through the times when we can’t have
Everything we want, but we’ve got this life to live
Don't quite know what to do with myself
Can't quite play music and I can't quite play my health
Ever get that feeling that something has changed
This mind’s gone blind to the tastes I once had

Maybe next time won’t be the same
Did you ever stop to think just why we're all a little insane
We spend our time pushing our minds to find a life
That we don’t want to be afraid to live
And I find that time don't ease the pain
I grow from the hours spent not fueling my brain
With the things that excite me
Ignight, my life, you fulfill my heart for the time I wait

Where did you lose that dried-up, wandering scrooge
I bet he's found his way up into the room
And everyone dances around with their booze
Will he fall in line and give into the times
Happy holidays for you and your wealth
Cause all the ghosts have scared him into an illusionary hell
He hasn't changed, he's just learned traditions are stealth
And if we keep fueling our lives off the past
We might not open our minds to the path
That shows us where some changes in our lives
Could make the times fully worth to live
And I won’t mind showing a life of struggle for myself
