Michael Caufield: Music

A New Life

(Michael Caufield)
A New Life


It feels a little strange to be feeling like I did before


long ago before I became a fatalistic bore


oh I was lost until you opened the door


yes it feels a little strange to be feeling like I did before


I don’t know why you ever gave me a chance


given my monetary circumstances


a poor man’s fate rarely makes anyone sing and dance


and now I watch you kicking up your feet


I can’t tell you what it means to see that you’re really


happy with me


and now this isn’t a lullaby


or some glossy little white lie


baby I just want to thank you for


this new life
