"This Thing Called Life" as written by and Richard Paul Ashcroft....
Oh, six strings, three chords, ah big dreams
And he don't let me down (he never)
When the days of rain came (he was there)
He was there for me when I was in pain (in pain)
Yeah I needed a call, he was the real friend
Oh (got his words), he got the words when I'm feeling low
He's like a skimming stone, like a rainbow
He's my brother when I'm down when I'm in luck (he is)
He's my brother when I'm down (Jesus Christ) and I'm out of luck
You know it's only love so let's come together (let's come together)
A little redemptive pleasure (redemptive pleasure), hm hm

Let's do this thing called life, (let's do this thing)
Oh let's try, (let's try again)
Oh let's try (let's try)
Let's do this thing called life (let's do this thing)
Hm let's try (let's try again, let's try again)
Oh let's try (let's try)

Don't have to swim with the tide (fishes)
Swim against the tide and find some hand to hold
Find somebody to show the light (lost in music)
Oh they're out there in the matrix tonight (All these years)
Oh man I've seen so many pages of stories (the blues never ends)
That have drifted down rivers
And the paper, yeah gets lost in the sea, in the oceans
Oh Lord I'm a giver
Oh, it's just a feeling (it's just a feeling)
It's just a feeling (it's just a feeling)

Let's do this thing called life
(let's do this thing called life)
Oh let's try, (let's try again)
Oh let's try (let's try)
Let's do this thing called life, (let's do this thing)
Hm let's try, (let's try again, let's try again)
Oh let's try (let's try)

You gotta learn to swim against the tide
You gotta learn to drop your foolish pride
You gotta learn to know these things they're dust
You gotta learn that misdeeds only rust.
You gotta learn the chains can open up (these genes survive)
And environment can fuck you up (the eyes)
You gotta learn that drugs don't really work (more music)
Unless you know the ones that hurt
Oh babe let's do it again (please baby)
I wanna put the record on and live it again (live it again)
I wanna rewind the tape, turn off the clocks
This is life now, undo my locks

Let's do this thing called life
(let's do this thing)
Oh let's try, (let's try it again)
Oh let's try (oh-oh oh-oh let's try)
Let's do this thing called life
(I now you feel the pain)
Oh let's try, (I know you feel the strain)
Oh let's try (let's fly)
She's my brother, my mother,
My sister, my mother, my father, ooh-ooh-aah
She's my brother, my sister,
My father, my father, my mother, o-ooh-ooh
(Free me now, please free me now, please hear me now)
Come on

Let's do this thing called life, (yeah)
Oh let's try, oh let's try (let's try)
(She's my brother, my mother, my sister,
My mother, my father, my mother)
Let's do this thing called life, oh let's try
Ooh let's try (let's try again, let's try again)
(She's my brother, my sister, my mother, my father, my brother)
Free me, yeah free me again, oh heal me again, free me, yeah heal me
Yeah free me, baby heal me, now free me, now heal me baby
(She's my brother, my sister, my father, my mother, oh-oh-oh)
Free me, now heal me, now free me, now heal me, now free me, now heal me
Now free me, now heal me, now free me, now heal me, now free me, yeah heal me
Now free me, now heal me, yeah free me, yeah heal me
Let's do this thing called life
