Day 43: Better Life

We’re already on our forty-third day.  Wow.  I’m happy that I’m able to keep doing this every day.

Anyways, today’s song is straight out of the Songs For Japan 2CD album, which you can buy and download from iTunes to support the help efforts directed at Japan.

This song is sung by Keith Urban and is entitled “Better Life

A better life–that’s what most people want.  The question is, what is a better life?  For those who are less fortunate than us, a better life means that they won’t have to wonder if they would be able to eat that day.  For those who are less fortunate than us, a better life means they and their children have a future waiting for them.

But, for those who have enough, for those who are richer than your average citizen.  What does a better life mean?  They already have the comfort of their own home.  They already know that they will be able to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and even have a snack in there or two.  They already know that they are well-off than most people.  So, what is a better life for them?

Does a better life equate to having more money?  To being able to buy all the thing we want?

Does a better life equate to being able kick back and let others work for you while you prosper from their hard living and do nothing to ease their fatigue, discomfort and worry?

Does wishing for a better life, even when you are already living a better life than most, the same as not being content with what you already have?  Does it justify why people end up being greedy?

Maybe yes.  Maybe no.

I think that the lines between greed and the desire for something better is somewhat blurred and can easily be crossed.  Once crossed however, one cannot go back.  You can try, of course, and there are those who manage to stop the greed from corrupting them further, but those people are so few.

Anyways, below are the lyrics to this song.  If you love this song, please download it from iTunes (including the whole album Songs For Japan).  Proceeds will, as I have stated, go to the relief efforts for Japan.

Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Friday night and the moon is high
I’m wide-awake just watchin’ you sleep
And I promise you you’re gonna have
More than just the things that you need
We ain’t got much now, We’re just startin’ out
But I know somehow paradise is comin’

Someday baby, You and I are gonna be the ones

Good luck’s gonna shine
Someday baby you and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on
We’re headed for a better life

Oh now there’s a place for you and me
Where we can dream as big as the sky
I know it’s hard to see it now
But baby someday we’re gonna fly
This road we’re on, you know it might be long
But my faith is strong
It’s all that really matters

Someday baby, You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck’s gonna shine
Someday baby you and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on
We’re headed for a better life

So hold on, hold on
C’mon baby, hold on

Yeah, we’re gonna have it all
And ooh

Someday baby, You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck’s gonna shine
Someday baby you and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on
We’re headed for a better life


Oh, a better life

Hey we’re gonna leave this all behind us baby, wait and see
We’re headed for a better life, you and me
We’re gonna break the chains that bind and, finally we’ll be free
We’re gonna be the ones that have it all, you and me
Just hold on tight now baby
