"To Die a Happy Man" as written by and Gary Michael Louris....
It's not enough, but then again, it's more than what I had
And if I die today, you know I'd die a happy man
Torturous though it seems
Pouring forth bittersweet
Wrestling with the good and evil
In ourselves within our struggle
Want to laugh, or say a prayer
I never had a cross to bare,

So beautiful
So beautiful


Is there a lesson here for me to learn, for me to follow
I crawl on shards of glass,
To reach the field where we can wallow
Strip me clean, I should rejoice
So cruel a game we have no choice
Pulled together like two atoms
Hurling through space and time
The days for you are nights for me
Do we deserve this misery
So beautiful

I need a picture of my cherished love between my fingers
I grasp for fragments & I gasp for air in drowning chambers
I feel your blood within my blood
I'd be there with you if I could
Like two birds in their cages
like actors upon different stages
I know that life is never fair
How could we dream this nightmare

So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful

For years I floated slow
Just drifting by in murky waters
But now the fog has lifted
Cycles fly in brilliant colors
Restless sleep, words seem weak
My lips they quiver when I speak
Cars and buses carry fools,
Who do not know what we're going through
I'm holding on for dear life
Because I've come to realize
It's beautiful

So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful

And now you’re home and in the background I can hear the voices
Feel you fadin' dear and you will be just distraught
Tortuous though it seems pouring forth the bittersweet
Wrestling with the good and evil in our selves within our struggle
Want to laugh, but do I dare, I never had a cross to bear

So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful
So beautiful
