Blues Traveler

Ain't That Life

Music: John Popper

Lyrics: John Popper/Rich Vink

 

Sometimes we try to reach the stars

And sometimes we just try

Sometimes we try to live a little

And sometimes we only die

Sometimes we try to hit new heights

And sometimes we hit the ground

Sometimes when we do, it's a silent night

And sometimes, there's a terrible sound

 

But ain't that life?

Ain't that life, anyway?

We can hope and we can pray

We can try and make a better day

But when it's over, what's left to say

But ain't that life, anyway?

 

We wanna teach, we wanna learn

We don't wanna feel alone

We want to say that we're gods on earth

We're really just flesh and bone

We're so damn proud of our intellect

That we try and chase the sun

The war of technology's over

We really don't know who won

 

But ain't that life?

Ain't that life, anyway?

We can hope and we can pray

We can try and make a better day

But when it's over, what's left to say

But ain't that life, anyway?

 

Teacher in space, went and died in disgrace

The TV sets saw everybody cry

Take another glance at a good distance

And just a couple of people died

With hope in her eyes, she streaked up through the sky

The wreckage washed up on the beach

I wonder if anybody asked her

"Is there anyone up there to teach?"

 

But ain't that life?

Ain't that life, anyway?

We can hope and we can pray

We can try and make a better day

But when it's over, what's left to say

But ain't that life, anyway?

 

Somewhere, someone's laughing

Somewhere, someone cries

Somewhere, someone sees the truth

While someone else tells lies

Somewhere, there's a Christian

Who's contemplating Zen

Somewhere, there's a pervert

Luring children to his den

Somewhere, a girl rides a skateboard

And hopes to be President

And somewhere an aging actor

Decides to give up Lent

A realtor takes up smoking

But cannot find a match

A kid nearly dies in his Dad's new car

But worries about the scratch

A newborn kitten freezes

While two young lovers part

And maybe here, some sucker

Could be taking this song to heart

 

It's beautiful, it's oh so beautiful

It's beautiful, it's oh so beautiful

 

Dreams can live long after we're gone

But what's really in a dream?

Sometimes it's the lies in a gambler's eyes

And sometimes, it's a silent scream

Some people die while others are born

And the circle of life goes on

When you get down to it, we're just visitors here

So you can't really do nothing wrong

 

But ain't that life?

Ain't that life, anyway?

We can hope and we can pray

We can try and make a better day

But when it's over, what's left to say

But ain't that life, anyway?

 

When it's over, what's left to say...

But ain't that life, anyway?
