Life Story (reprise)

A musical by Adam Gwon
Ordinary Days - Life Story (reprise) Lyrics

Everyone’s got a big picture
That guides them through life toward what they want to be
So if everyone’s got a big picture
How come my picture’s something that I still have yet to see?
This is a flyer that’s been in my backpack for weeks now
Buried down deep, getting faded and wrinkled and torn.
I have been making these flyers till kingdom come
Writing all of these words that now seem, kind of dumb.
And it’s hard not to feel that this isn’t my real life story.
I imagined I’d come here and do something big,
That the artist in me would prevail
But all I’ve done so far is copy these words
From some hippie downtown who’s sitting in jail
Well, this is a guy who cannot be described as a quitter
This is a guy who should do what he set out to do
You might snicker and laugh that it’s so clich?.
To think making these means I’ve got something to say
But I do, and that’s why I wish they could be my life story
My life story
My life… Deb!
