Woke up on the wrong side
dreams from the dark half of your mind
clock says it’s eleven but really it feels like seven
and the perfect days seem harder and harder to find

Pour yourself a coffee to go
can’t remember where you parked last night, so you walk real slow
praying for an inch of luck
to fall into your cup
but it’s just rain
ain’t that perfect, babe?

lover girl, don’t you fight
all the lows ‘cause they make highs
worth every single lie
we’re just like you barely getting by
but we’re learning to love this life
we’re all learning to love this life
one day at a time
(learning to love this live chant)

Maybe your house feels all too small
your bed it seems to big since they been gone
maybe you miss your mother
the way she’s been missing your father
it’s all relative
I swear it is...


one day at a time, just keep holdin’ on, and follow
the light, every single day it grows twice as strong
I’m sick and tired of waiting for love to
find me...
but then I remember I’m still learning, so

I’m laying down my arms tonight
let the lows do what they might
some day it’ll be alright
‘til then I’m barely getting by
but I’m learning to love this life,
learning to love this life,


Learning to love, learning to love this life...
