It’s a Wonderful Life

Home / Blog / It’s a Wonderful Life

Hi,

I’m releasing my latest song today.

I wrote this song about a moment when someone pulls up to their house one evening and realises things have changed between their partner and themselves. Faced with an inevitable separation there’s a part of them that realises even though there’ll be some tough times ahead, life still has a lot to offer. I wanted to remind people who feel that all is lost when a powerful relationship comes to an end that life is very likely to feel wonderful once they’ve healed, anyway I hope you find it interesting.

Here are the lyrics:

Wonderful Life ~ Written and Produced by Simon Smith and Steve Dumelo
June 2011 UK

Pulled up in my driveway, sat in my car
Night sky was coming down hard
Listened to the radio
Skipped a couple of tunes
Looked in my mirror at you

Didn’t know why
Didn’t want to come in
Feeling dead inside
Someone told a story
Somebody lied
So take a ride
Enjoy the trip of my life
It’s a wonderful life
It’s a wonderful life

Have you got a feeling
Got to get away
Do you get to feeling
That you can no longer stay
Have you got a feeling
Got to get away
Got to get away

Moon it goes around
Life it flies
Gonna say hello
Sometimes goodbye
Take the phone right off the hook
Gonna sit down and write your book
Gonna take the lies we once said
Write across your bed

Well I’d come to you
But you’d go
And all the things I’d have to say
You’d know

So take a ride
Enjoy the trip of your life
It’s a wonderful life
It’s a wonderful life
Have you got a feeling
Got to get away
Do you get to feeling
That you can no longer stay
Have you got a feeling
Got to get away
Got to get away
Got to get away

Times are here, times are gone
No matter what, it moves on

I don’t remember me pointing a gun
I don’t remember us not having fun
I don’t remember us wanting more
But I guess I don’t know us anymore

So take a ride
Enjoy the trip of our life
It’s a wonderful life
It’s a wonderful life
Have you got a feeling
Got to get away
Do you get to feeling
You can no longer stay
Have you got a feeling
Got to get away
Got to get away
Got to get away

Lyrics Simon Smith 2011
Music Simon Smith and Steve Dumelo

It’s a Wonderful life, the title are beautiful and the music are sweet and calm. I really like the song, and I’m sure I will listen to this song on my iphone.
I also have to tell, that my favorite still is :in the middle of the night.
But thank you for sharing your music. I really like it.

Thank you Jonna, for me it’s hard to hear any of the songs as you do, I often want to make little changes to them. I think some painters have been caught going in to galleries and touching up their paintings… it’s hard to know when to jump off the carousel. I am glad you like the songs, I spent many years without an audience so now I realise what a gift it is to have people listening, so thank you too. ?
