Sunlight peels back my eyelids
Just waking up is a reason for a celebration
My existence is the product of the air that cools my lungs
And the survival of experience

Well, this path I take
Is the same I take on my long drive home
Make a right turn at that forking road
Knowing all is well if I just come home alive

I'm calming down
(I'm calming down)
I'm calming down
(I'm calming down)

Just be content
With the simple pleasures
That make each day
Come on, help me
God, help me breathe
Breathe in the gift of life
Cause when it comes back down
To the broken bones and headaches
You can realize you're young

Get up and start another day
Another day to prove this world has something to live for
Sunsets and love
A first kiss with a pretty girl
Empty bottles of wine
And reliving the good times

This path I take
Is the same I take on my long drive home
Make a right turn at that forking road
Knowing all is well if I just come home alive

I'm calming down
(I'm calming down)
I'm calming down
(I'm calming down)

Just be content
With the simple pleasures
That make each day
Come on, help me
God, help me breathe
Breathe in the gift of life
Cause when it comes back down
To the broken bones and headaches
You can realize you're young

We know they're never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, no
We know they're never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, no
We know they're never gonna get it
Never gonna get it, no
We know they're never gonna get it
Never gonna get it

Just be content
With the simple pleasures
That make each day
Come on, help me
God, help me breathe
Breathe in the gift of life
Cause when it comes back down
To the broken bones and headaches
You can realize you're young

Just be content
With the simple pleasures
That make each day
Come on, help me
God, help me breathe
Breathe in the gift of life
Cause when it comes back down
To the broken bones and headaches
You can realize you're young

    General Commentis anyone really confused about the meaning of this song, let's be honest. I mean don't get me wrong, this song is ridiculously catchy but it doesn't exactly dig much deeper into the crayola box than the basic 16..
