"Wonderful Life" as written by Theo Hutchcraft, Adam Anderson and Joseph Cross....
On a bridge across the Severn on a Saturday night,
Susie meets the man of her dreams.
He says that he got in trouble and if she doesn't mind
He doesn't want the company
But there's something in the air
They share a look in silence and everything is understood
Susie grabs her man and puts a grip on his hand as the rain puts a tear in his eye.

She says

Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

Driving through the city to the temple station,
Cries into the leather seat
And Susie knows the baby was a family man,
But the world has got him down on his knees

So she throws him at the wall and kisses burn like fire,
And suddenly he starts to believe
He takes her in his arms and he doesn't know why,
But he thinks that he begins to see

She says,

Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

She says

Don't let go
Never give up
Don't let go
Never give up, it's such a wonderful life

Wonderful life, wonderful life, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful life
Wonderful life, wonderful life, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful life

Don't let go
Don't let go

    General CommentThis song is about a man who is just going to suicide "On a bridge across the seven", he also says he is in trouble and he doesn't want company, but a woman (Susie) makes him change his mind and they fall in love at first sight.

    She says "Dont let go, never give up, it's such a wonderful life.."

    Great song, they are really great!!!

    Song MeaningI got this from Wikipedia: In an interview with entertainment website Digital Spy lead singer Theo Hutchcraft said of the song: "It's basically based on two extremes: the first being a man who wants to kill himself and the second being love at first sight. He's standing on the bridge about to jump and he's stopped by a woman. They see each other and fall in love. She basically says, 'Come with me, it's all going to be fine'. The song only offers a snippet of someone's life, so we don't know what happens at the end of it."

    General CommentOh, I love this song.
    It aways reminds my of Richey Edwards (of Manic Street Preachers). He disappeared in 1995 and his car was found abandoned near the Severn Bridge a few weeks after. He was presumed dead, but I like to think that this song describes what happened to him instead.

    General CommentMore than a passing resemblance to "talktalk"'s "it's my life"... but that's not a criticism.

    This so gives me such determination not to give up - even though i'm not particularly suicidal at the moment!

    Really sweet story about this desperate guy thinking of jumping from the bridge - but instead meeting a voracious, passionate lover instead.

    I feel sad for his family, who have lost him in either scenario but happy that at least they found each other.

    Susie sounds really sexy. Mmm

    :-)

    Song MeaningFirstly this is an amazing song with deep meaning..
    As quoted by the band themselves, the song is about "Suicide, love, salvation and Bristol"
    And lyric correction: it's "on a bridge across the Severn"

    General Comment'And lyric correction: it's "on a bridge across the Severn"'

    Should they have written 'Avon' though? The Severn crossings are a bit of a trek from Bristol (10 miles), wouldn't be the first time people have thought the river going through Bristol is the Severn...
