Funny Little Life

about

The call was put out to write lyrics or record parts for a new winter holiday song in a day, for which the chords were hastily recorded. Amber Edgar wrote these lyrics on spec, and Graydon James pummelled percussives and laid an organic foundation. Fun, and a reason to draw closer to someone during the holiday season!

lyrics

FUNNY LITTLE LIFE
Lyrics by Amber Edgar

(D - A - G - G / Bm - A - G - G)

VERSE
Well it’s been one hell of a year
I think we made it out in pieces
Let’s stay indoors with a bit of whiskey
Hang up some lights and let ‘em flicker

CHORUS
Christmas is dumb
And so are all the angels
There’s no such thing as
A silent night
Yet every morning I wake up
Next to you
How I love this
Funny little life

VERSE 2
Well I’m not great with scissors
But if you don’t get a white December
I’ll make you snowflakes out of paper
Hang up some lights and let ‘em flicker

CHORUS
Christmas is dumb
And so are all the angels
There’s no such thing as
A silent night
Yet every morning I wake up
Next to you
How I love this
Funny little life

VERSE (softer)
There’s a lovely fragrance of wood smoke
In the cool evening air
Let’s get outside and watch the meteors shooting
Across the great big sky

CHORUS
Christmas is dumb
And so are all the angels
There’s no such thing as
A silent night
Yet every morning I wake up
Next to you
Oh how I love this
Funny little life

CHORUS
Yeah hope is dumb
And nothing is perfect
There’s no such thing as
A silent night
Yet every morning I wake up
Next to you
How I love this
Funny little life
