This Life 4:28

Baby, I know pain
is as natural as the rain
I just thought it didn’t rain
in california

Baby, I know love
isn’t what I thought it was
Cuz I never known a love
like this before you

Baby, I know dreams
tend to crumble at extremes
I just thought our dream would last a
little bit longer

There’s a time when every man
draws a line down in the sand
We’re surviving. We’re still living.
Are we stronger?

You’ve been cheating on, cheating on me
I’ve been cheating on, cheating on you
You’ve been cheating on me
But I've been cheating through

This life
And all its suffering
Oh Christ
Am I good for nothing?

Baby, I know hate
is always waiting at the gate
I just thought we’d locked the gate when we
left in the morning

And I was told that war is
how we landed on these shores
I just thought the drums of war beat
louder warnings

Baby, I know death
prolly hasn’t happened yet
cuz I don’t remember living life before
this

And darling, our disease
is the same one as the trees
Unaware that they’ve been living in a
forest
