"Wonderful Life" as written by Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti....
Close your eyes,
And just hear me sing,
One last long goodbye,
One last song before you spread your wings.

There's so much left to say,
And before this moment slips away

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I loved you so

Then the cold night calls,
And the tears fall like rain,
It's so hard letting go,
Of the one thing I'll never replace

And soon you will be gone,
But these words, they will live on

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I'll miss you so,
And though our days come to an end,
No, I'll never love like this again,
What a wonderful life my friend

And all that I am,
You let me be,
I will remember you,
For all that you've done,
And given to me

Love will remain,
This I can see,
Now and forever more
Because of you,
Now I believe
I believe

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I loved you so

What a wonderful life,
For as long as you've been at my side,
And I want you to know,
I'll miss you so,
And though our days come to an end,
No, I'll never love like this again,
What a wonderful life
A wonderful life
What a wonderful life
What a wonderful life

And with one last embrace
As the tears fall like rain you're gone
And with one last goodbye,
As you fade out tonight, you're gone.

    General CommentOn the official Alter Bridge blog entry for AB III, Myles is quoted as saying, "The lyric was inspired by the idea that there will come a day when we all must say goodbye to the ones we love and hold dear in our hearts. Basically, I asked myself what would I want to say in that final moment, that last goodbye?”

    He's also said, although I can't find the source, that the song is about a man losing his wife to disease.

    This is an extremely touching song, right on par with In Loving Memory.

    General CommentEasily one of the top 3 of the new album. It reminds me of "In Loving Memory". Can't wait to see this live.

    General Comment"In Loving Memory" was about Mark's mother. Who is "Wonderful Life" about?

    General CommentAll I know is that I was able to share this song with someone who meant so very much to me. It may save the relationship we had, but it helped her understand the relationship we could still have. It may not be the one I want, but it's the one I'll gladly accept rather than having her erased entirely from my life.
