“Life is a beautiful game” – story & lyrics :)

September 6, 2009 § Leave a comment

Hello all,

I just uploaded another song called “Life is a beautiful game”. Again, arrangement by Manu Joulia, lyrics&tune by myself.

I could say that it is the “quickest” song I’ve ever made, regarding the time it took to make it become a recorded song from the day it was born. Just about two months old… The idea came to me in June and it became a full-flesh song within some weeks. AND it is the first song I actually wrote here in France. I think. Well, the first full song. I still have some half-created ideas and lots of blurbs otherwise.

Anyway… One night I was walking home, alone in the strange streets, without a map really and at some point without any idea which direction to take. So I just walked and turned in some places I felt I should turn.

It was kinda scary but in a funny way I felt secure. Like if I was in a safe place, world was protecting me and letting only good things to happen. I encountered some other humans out late and asked for the direction, and my direction was right and I made it home.

And there are many mornings when I wake up and feel really grateful for everything that has happened to me lately. I like to lay and watch the sunspots on the walls and in the ceiling and just feel it: anything is possible.

I want to keep my thoughts pure and light and keep my body healthy and happy and find something good in everything, even in the saddest things in this world. I want to learn and understand.

Anyway, I am in this world for just a short time. About hundred years all together – estimated – feels awfully short to me. I am afraid a human is not able to learn within a hundred years everything that I would like to learn…

But even for that short while, I want to enjoy the game :)

And this song is dedicated to all people who believe in the power of dreams. Make your dreams come true. It’s only you yourself who can know exactly what you want and nobody else is going to do the dreaming part for you.

this morning i woke up

and i felt it for real
how dreams come true
even those that we wish to fade

you were told a story
of how your life would go
but you don’t know – it can change
‘coz life  is a beautiful game

watch out what you’re dreaming about
i say: watch out
watch out what you’re dreaming about
‘coz life is a beautiful
life is a beautiful game

i always find my way
and my dreams come true
no matter what i say
i see my skies in blue

watch out what you’re dreaming about
i say: watch out
watch out what you’re dreaming about
‘coz life is a beautiful
life is a beautiful game

and when you take it all away
i really won’t cry
‘coz in the end we’re just all the same
life is a beautiful game

watch out what you’re dreaming about…
