(3/4 time)

(4/4 time)
I wrote us a sweet song
Where the rhythms and the melodies
Never needed to change

With words so beautiful they'd make you
Say you'd give up everything and
Decide to stay

Drifted off to sleep that night
Thinking I had captured us
In a perfect light
Of a future life

Woke up the next day
Excited to listen to the
Recording I'd made

So I played it back to myself
But the story I'd invented was
It was boring as hell
So thank God

(3/4 time)
This is not that song
No, this is not that song

(4/4 time)
Lesson learned today
No matter how I write it down
It won't stay the same
We're all built to change
So thank God

(3/4 time)
Life is not one song
No, life is not one song
