lyrics

When I went to bed my girlfriend said goodnight
I woke up this morning with a puppy by my side
And I deduce I could complain but I don't have the right
Right now I'm just happy to be alive

I look at all the things we own that I don't ever use
I look at my family and what I put them through
I would like to take the time out to apologize
Right now I'm just happy to be alive

I'm sitting on the porch and there's this house across the street
They get their landscaping done at least twice a week
And I don't care if all of our weeds are getting high
Right now I'm just happy to be alive

I've got all my fingers, all my toes
My body's full of H2O
I'm 29 but none of my hair is falling out
I'm not saying that I'm perfect, I've got lots of room to grow
And I don't mean to sound holier than thou

But I play songs to one town and I hardly venture out
People sing the words back to me almost twice as loud
Sometimes I'm embarrased by my songwriting archive
But right now I'm just happy to be alive

I've got all my fingers, all my toes
My body's full of H2O
I'm 29 but none of my hair is falling out
I'm not saying that I'm perfect, I've got lots of room to grow
And I don't mean to sound holier than thou

Once I spent an unexpected night inside a jail
It was hard to spend the night away from my email
But I lit up a cigarette and I waved the cops goodbye
And right then I was happy to be alive
