Life is a story don't you doubt
Bad times give you something to talk about
The next time you feel you're all worn out
Remember life is a story
Don't you doubt
It only takes a day for everything to turn around

Love is a story they tell to you
But the way they tell it ain't quite true
You'll wake up one day and you're twenty-two
You know love is just a story that they tell to you
Love takes a lot of work like everything else you're gonna do

Friends are just the people that you can talk with
Somebody to talk about that somebody to talk about this
But everyone changes and forever is a myth
Friends are just the people that you can talk with
A lot of them'll leave but only a few you're gonna miss

School is the place where I did my growing
They fill your brain to overflowing
They tell you this is all stuff you need to be knowing
School is the place where I did my growing
Just when I got to like it it was time to be going

The world is the place where it all happens
They draw lines on it and call it a map
In between every line's a different flag flapping
The world is the place where it all happens
Six billion people all taking turns eating in a napkin

Animals are critters just like you and me
The only difference is that they don't worry
About things that they can't smell or see
Animals are critters just like you and me
So we buy pants and deodorants and claim not to be

Songs are just something to waste your time
I listen to yours and you listen to mine
Before we know it the day's gone by
Songs are just something to waste your time
So is everything else to do whatever makes you feel fine

God's just a story someone made up long ago
Before they had books and TV shows
I don't believe in him and I ain't afraid to say so
You know god's just a story someone made up long ago
But it's hard not to be superstitious despite all you know

Everyone's born and everyone dies
Everyone has a time and wonders why
The ocean's blue so is the sky
Everyone's born and everyone dies
The old lady cries, the new baby cries and sighs

Kisses are weird but they can be fun
Instead of shaking hands it's like shaking tongues
I wish I got to do it more when I was young
Kisses are weird but they can be fun
I hate going once a month without kissing anyone

At this point it's been since uh how many months
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
I think if kissing someone could make them pregnant
The last person I kissed would have had their kid by now

Dreams are weird but they can be fun too
They happen more often than kisses it's true
In some I was naked and in some I flew
Dreams are weird but they can be fun too
I wonder if you're dreaming about me when I'm dreaming about you

Now that you heard everything I said
There ain't nothing new inside your head
If you want, disregard it all go ahead
Now that you've heard everything I said
There are probably one or two things you coulda been doing instead

Life is a story don't you doubt
Bad times give you something to talk about
The next time you feel you're all worn out
Remember life is a story
Don't you doubt
It only takes a day for everything to turn around
