Feelin’ Good

Verse 1:

Wake up early and the birds are tweeting
Now normally I’d return to sleep and
Wouldn’t even dream of leaving my bed
And would need to be dragged out kicking and screaming
But for some reason today is different
I don’t know why but I feel energised
Ideas fly into my mind
So I jump out my bed and I pick up and pen and write
I’ve been trying this song a fortnight
But every time it’s just come out poorly
But now the words seem to form perfectly
And the song virtually writes itself for me
Within an hour the whole thing is finished
But I need a singer to complete the hook
And I ain’t got Nina so Sharleena’s
Gonna explain why I’m feeling good!

Chorus:

Birds flying high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Leaves drifting on by, you know how i feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
And I’m feelin’ good

Verse 2:

It’s night time and I got a show to go to
And I feel a little nervous even though you’re sposed to
My brain’s telling me all the ways it could go wrong
But my heart deep down knows it won’t do
– It doesn’t help that I’m stone cold sober
Coz I know if I only have one Corona
I’ll forget my lyrics and lose my composure
So I don’t have a drop til it’s totally over
I walk out to a sea of faces
In the hope that this place won’t be complacent
But it appears that my fears are baseless
Because all the people in here embrace us
We nail it like a piece of wood
And it goes better than we ever dreamed it could
We say thanks as we leave and we mean it
Coz shows like these are the reason we’re feeling good!

Chorus:

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River running free, you know how I feel
Blossom in the tree, yeah you know how i feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
And I’m feelin’ good

Verse 3:

Wake up late on a Sunday midday
Girlfriend taking all of the duvet
I nudge her and she ain’t budging
But she looks so comfy I don’t even begrudge it
I wonder is she gonna wake up soon?
I’m hungry so I go to leave the room
She jumps me and pulls me back under the covers
And before long one thing leads to another
We spend the rest of the day in our PJs
As we binge on our favourite show
We must look like Dr Dre’s DJ the amount we play
The Next Episode
Now it’s 8 and we ain’t even moved
So we place an order for takeaway food
Lying in bed eating pud
Who would’ve thought, being so bad could ever feel so good?

Chorus:

Stars when you shine, you know how I feel
Scent of the pine, you know how I feel
Freedom is mine, you know how i feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
And I’m feelin’ good
