This is a song I wrote and recorded in about 2006. It's an incredibly simple tune but I like it and I'm proud of the words. This version features my old American sounding voice before I worked hard to shake that and sound more English.


Sometimes I wish life was like a sit-com,
Where everyone's happy all the time,
I know it's not real it's just TV,
But for the moment I'm happy to dream.

Maybe I could crawl right through the screen,
To where everybody knows my name,
Stop for a while and have a beer,
Watch all my troubles fade away.

Sometimes I wish life was like a movie,
Where the good guy always wins,
Stops the bomb with one second to go,
Saves the world and gets the girl.

At least until the credits roll,
The screen goes black and it's reality,
Where nothing worked out the way you planned,
You did your best but somehow the script just got lost in the mail.
