I was born with tears in my eyes
Like everybody else I know
Kicking and screaming
All I could see was a light in a world so cold

No-one to hold you
Feels so lonely
Left out on your own
But we were born with tears in our eyes
And that’s how we learned the strength to fight

It’s a beautiful life
Well, you won’t always see it that way
When you’re deep in a hole
With nowhere to go
And you can’t see it change

(It’s a beautiful life)
'Cause it’s just out of sight
It’s a beautiful life

You’re scared, got the fear every day
Sounds like everybody else I know
Takes a hole in the ground
Or the sky falling down
Before we can let it show

If you’re just like me
You’re trying to believe
That it’s all going to work out fine
We can live with the doubt
We’re trying to do without
Maybe we don’t have to fight

It’s a beautiful life
Well, you won’t always see it that way
When you’re deep in a hole with nowhere to go
And you can’t see it change

(It’s a beautiful life)
'Cause it’s just out of sight
It’s a beautiful life

I tried so hard to keep hanging on
Well maybe you should just let it go
Let the hope in your heart break the fall

Sing with me
It’s a beautiful life
Well, you won’t always see it that way
When you’re deep in a hole with nowhere to go
And you can’t see it change

(It’s a beautiful life)
'Cause it’s just out of sight
It’s a beautiful life
