“This one is for the girl who says those voices in her head, never leave her alone. Don’t listen to your teacher, you’re not crazy, just smarter than the rest of them.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAt a conference last week, I had the pleasure of meeting the Troubadours of Divine Bliss. Two beautiful, talented women with tender, creative, amazing spirits and hearts, and inspiring, profound music.

I thought you might appreciate their cover of the song, Life is Sweet.  Click for the video, and below are the lyrics…

This one is for the girl who says she’s unlucky in love, you deserve to have the world at your feet

And if one person, one man could be enough, then I wish it could be me I wish it could be me

This one is for the boy whose daddy never had the time for him, wish I could build you a little house for you to hide in

And give you back your summers, I’d give you back all your summers

You still have summers

Life is sweet, life is sweet, life is sweet

Bittersweet

And the days keep rollin’ along

This one is for the girl who says those voices in her head, never leave her alone

Don’t listen to your teacher, you’re not crazy, just smarter than the rest of them

Paint a picture, write a song, tell your story, bang a gong

Life is sweet, life is sweet, life is sweet

Bittersweet

And the days keep rollin’ along

This one is for the boy who’s not allowed to be part of the gang, you don’t need those losers I think you’re beautiful

And you meet a girl and you fall in love and it doesn’t work out, well it won’t be the first time and they don’t make a cure for that

So you eat your breakfast, read a book, open up your window, be alone

Life is sweet, life is sweet, life is sweet

Bittersweet

And the days keep rollin’ along

(Life is Sweet by Maria McKee)
