If my life had a soundtrack it would be acoustic
With songs about the way I laugh
At my ability to love things that I can't have
If my life were a movie, it would be black and white with still-frames in color and hue
The credits would say a simple phrase like, "You aren't what you say or what you do, so don't worry so much, just get on with a life that you love"

I had a good day
Since I didn't die or have to wait
In any really long lines at the store
Me I like to make music
You just like to make war

There's a calico kitten prancing across a rooftop
Smiling at the gray withered sky
He's watching all the cars as they pass by
Their blinkers go click, click, click
This new height makes him homesick
He misses his mother the most
And his long days by the window
They're long, long gone

If my life had a soundtrack it would be acoustic
With songs about the way I laugh
And my ability to lose everything I have, everything I have
If my life were a movie, it would be black and white with still-frames in color and hue
The credits would say a simple phrase like, "You aren't what you say or what you do, so don't worry so much, just get on with a life that you love"

If you're alright, then I'm alright, If you're alright, then I'm alright
It feels good to be alive again
I can finally see the sky again
It feels good to be alive again
I’m finally alright again

    General Commenti might be wrong, but i heard "you are what you say or what you do." the second time he sings it.
    and i think that fits better because the second time he's singing about sadder things.

    General CommentI dont know why, but this song is amazing. his lyrics the tune, the rythem and the beat change. its cute and it should have more comments.

    my thoughts on this song is basically self explained in the song, he is saying that his life would be plain and simple (If my life were a movie, it would be black and white) with a few bursts of energy, or excitment (with still-frames in color and hue) and they phrase is saying hey like is boring unless you make it exciting.

    i agree with liz1001 i think he says "you are what you say or do"
