Life Is A Beautiful Song

Life Is A Beautiful Song was a gift from Nolan Gasser - a truly remarkable friend and a great musician who has his Ph.D. in classical music studies from Stanford. He gave me a cassette before a 14 hour plane ride to Australia in July of 2000 and said, "this is your song - if you’d like to add some words...that’d be fine." I wrote the song walking around Melbourne and Sidney, trying to adjust to time differences and thinking of home. “Safe Home” is a term that the Irish say and it found its way into the song.

I remember the first time I heard that sweet melody
The gift of your song
It's weaving and yearning, the world keeps on turning
The light of the dawn
There are guardian angels to lead me back home
'Cause the road is so long
And tomorrow I'll travel safe home in the morning
Return to the ones that I love

Let the rains come, the roses will bloom
Let the sun shine, it'll light up the moon
And I believe I hear the angels
They've been helping me here all along
Oh, and the world keeps on spinning
And we keep on living
And life is a beautiful song

Life is a symphony and each life a melody
A voice for a time
Blending and sharing in search of sweet harmony
The rhythm and rhyme
It's the song of my life that I'm singing
And I'd like to keep singing strong
Some voices are gone but they've left me their song
Like angels they're singing me home.

Let the rains come, the roses will bloom
Let the sun shine, it'll light up the moon
And I believe I hear the angels
They've been helping me here all along
Oh, and the world keeps on spinning
And we keep on living
And life is a beautiful song

And when it's time for goodbyes from the road
Imagine how any of us could love life any more

In your heart you know it's the giving
Keeps us all coming back for more
And it's no surprise when you open your eyes
That love opens all of the doors

Let the rains come, the roses will bloom
Let the sun shine, it'll light up the moon
And I believe I hear the angels
They've been helping me here all along
Oh, and the world keeps on spinning
And we keep on living
And life is a beautiful - spinning and living
And life is a beautiful - learning and turning
Life is a beautiful song.
