Lyrics

It’s a goddamn miracle that I’m still here
Cause it’s been a long, long hard couple of years
Though I never made those cuts
There were times I was close enough

I don’t know how, but I made it through
Stuck it together with staples and glue
Like a paper chandelier
I was hollow, but I was here

Well you take all the best
And just make up the rest
The times I’ve been on the edge
A light keeps pulling me back
But you know I’m glad
To have a heart like that

It’s a real occasion, yeah bona fide
Raising a glass to being alive
Maybe I’ll get my big hit song
Maybe I’ll marry after all

(Chorus)

There ain’t no reason or rhyme
To the ways we find to keep trying
In the face of more than you signed up for
You pray for luck
Keep keeping up

Take all the best
And make up the rest
The times I’ve been on the edge
A light keeps pulling me back
And you know I’m glad
And you know I’m glad
And you know I’m glad
To have a heart like that
