Lyrics

There's a bell ringin', somewhere cross the sky
There's a bird at my backdoor singin', and maybe that is why
After the bad I've seen, across this dirty world
I'm still happy, that I'm stil in it

I like to watch the sunset, from the roof of my garage
It's a sweet and peaceful feeling, like driving my old Dodge
Down some rain-soaked Nebraska interstate, on a lazy summer day
Makes me happy, that I'm still in it

I don't race against the clock, I don't tear my brother down
I never miss a chance to sleep, or take a long drive out of town
Or just stand out in the rain, until I'm pure afraid I'll drown
It kinda makes me happy, that I'm still in it

And if I had the money, I'd spend it all there in one place
Some folks talk about their future, like growing up's a race
That they can't win, with a moment's peace, or a weekend lost in space
You know it makes me happy, that I'm not in it

Well there's stuff I'd like to have, but the outlook's pretty stark
I'll ever win a Nobel prize, or be sober after dark
But I'm thankful for the little things, and I've learned all too well
Crying over spilled intentions, is a road paved straight to hell

I ain't as young as I used to be, my hair's been going grey
I ain't prone to panic, I'm kinda liking it this way
It's a mark of all I've done and been, and of finding my own way
And it makes me happy, that I'm still in it

And when my time is over, and my body's old and bent
Well I won't feel bad about it, and I won't pay no more rent
But til that day, I'll take it all in stride, and let it soak me to the skin
And I'll just be happy, that I'm still in it

Yeah til that day, I'll take it all in stride and let it soak me to the skin
And just be happy, that I'm still in it

Yeah every day I take it all in stride, and let it soak me to the skin
And I'll just feel happy, that I'm still in it
