Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

A Life Like Mine

This song was created for Game of Bands round 232 : "Triple Dual I: Musicians"

Lyrics:

So long, adios
This is the part where I hit the road
There is nothing left for me here
No silver lining

Stand up, raise a glass
Like all good things I too shall pass
I’ve done all that I needed to do
The light’s so blinding

Ticket booked, one way
First class, free champagne

Blazed through, wasted youth
But when it mattered, I spoke my truth
I lost more battles than I won
But I’m still smiling

Mess made; bed laid
Should have gone but also stayed
Decisions that made so much sense
Now leave me pining

Ticket booked, one way
First class, free champagne

And I never performed on a stage
And I never learned to fly a plane
The thought that I would sacrifice my freedom for a moment’s high
Is crazy in a life like mine
Where I’ve always been just fine
Just fine

Meet someone, fall in love
Last a year but then move on
We both know we’re much better off
So keep on swiping

Bored, tired - doesn’t sound like me
I’ll snatch a defeat from victory
My friends, foes, fam and countrymen
We’re all here, crying

Ticket booked, one way
First class, free champagne

Check out, pay the bill
You can’t stop me, I won’t keep still
Worked hard each and every day
And I’m still climbing

Blessed be the fruit
I bow to no one, including you
I’m the master of my own demise
Look at me – winning

Ticket booked, one way
First class, free champagne

nd I never performed on a stage
And I never learned to fly a plane
And I never dared to stoke the flame
And I never called you by your name
The thought that I would sacrifice my freedom for a moment’s high
Is crazy in a life like mine
Where I’ve always been just fine
Just fine
[Exit]
