Alex Harvey - To make my life beautiful
Tekst en muziek: Alex Harvey
(1972)






The dawn creeps ’cross the pillow
Where the face of an angel
Lies cradled in a nest of tangled hair
And the smile of contentment
On your face while you’ve been sleepin’
Keeps me going, makes me know just why I’m here



And I don’t believe, you’ll ever find
A thought will ever cross my mind to leave
I’d die from loneliness
I’ll need your onlyness
A place for my soul to rest
Yes, I need your love
To make my life beautiful



The alarmclock rings at seven
And I feel a stir beside me
I hear your gentle footsteps on the floor
I raise up from my pillow
Just in time to catch a small glimpse
Of a housecoat swishing through the kitchen door



And I don’t believe, you’ll ever find
A thought will ever cross my mind to leave
I’d die from loneliness
I’ll need your onlyness
A place for my soul to rest
Yes, I need your love
To make my life beautiful



I watch my shaving razor
Gliding smoothly on the face
Of a happy man, who loves to live at home
And the sweetest voice I ever heard
Is calling me to breakfast
I don’t know how I made it on my own



And I don’t believe, you’ll ever find
A thought will ever cross my mind to leave
I’d die from loneliness
I’ll need your onlyness
A place for my soul to rest
Yes, I need your love
To make my life beautiful
