Optimistic Thought - Blues Traveler

By John Popper

When she wakes it seems so shady,
She remembers she's a lady,
Ah, but could it be that maybe,
She was having lots of fun?
She sees she's wearing leather,
In her navel there's a feather,
She just has to crack a smile,
And close her eyes, her prayer begun:

Life I embrace you,
I shall honor and disgrace you,
Please forgive if I replace you,
You see I'm going through some pain,
But now I see clearly,
And the dawn is coming nearly,
And though I'm human and it's early
I swear I'll never forget again.

An explorer he went wandering,
To satisfy his pondering,
Basically meandering,
Unsure of what he'd find,
Braving any danger,
To his family he's a stranger,
And from time to time he turns around,
And this runs through his mind:

Life I embrace you,
I shall honor and disgrace you,
Please forgive if I replace you,
You see I'm going through some pain,
But now I see clearly,
And the dawn is coming nearly,
And though I'm human and it's early
I swear I'll never forget again.

There's a multitude of story,
Some is clean and some is gory,
But there is no need to worry,
If you're sold or if you're bought,
We're just spinning on some granite,
That we like to call a planet,
And if you need to contemplate,
Here's an optimistic thought:

Life I embrace you,
I shall honor and disgrace you,
Please forgive if I replace you,
You see I'm going through some pain,
But now I see clearly,
And the dawn is coming nearly,
And though I'm human and it's early
I swear I'll never forget again.
