Josef Salvat - This Life Lyrics




Hey, hey, hey, eh eh eyy

Let me get straight to it,
I’ve bit off more than I could chew
I felt the sting and slap of failure missed my due
Like a hard knife, cutting through a slice
Of ego of ambition yeah put me off my mission,
I’ve been wandering alleys in a dirty shirt,
Taking this and that ’cause I had so much hurt,
I’m not plying you with liquor
For your tongue to get a flicker
I just need to tell my story
If you’re drunk I’ll get done quicker.

Hey hey gotta keep the hope up
Gotta keep your eye on the prize
Hey hey gotta keep the highs up,
I’m an optimist of the most dangerous size
There is more to this life
I must believe there is more to this life.
There is more to this life
I must believe there is more to this life.

Let me get straight to it,
There’s more explaining I could do
But I am here just for diversion
As are you
Don’t mean to jump the gun,
But we could have some fun
There’s little sense in dishing

Since I’ve noticed you’re not listening
I’m feeling fairly lucky
I’ve been surfing shadows of success in my dreams,
And yes I know my guard’s down
But I don’t mind if you, see.

Hey hey gotta keep the hope up
Gotta keep your eye on the prize
Hey-hey gotta keep the highs up,
I’m an optimist of the most dangerous kind
There is more to this life
I must believe there is more to this life.
There is more to this life
I must believe there is more to this life.

This life, this life, this life...

Hey, hey, hey, eh eh eyy
Hey, hey, hey, eh eh eyy
There is more to this life,
I must believe there is more to this life
There is more to this life.
I must believe there is more to this life

  42. Frname

    I don't get why so many people are comparing him to Lana Del Rey. I mean, except the "retro visuals" the music isn't the same at all

    Ellie Amissah

    +Frname he uses the same music producer as Lana so it is subtly similar.

    Frname the twang at the end of some words and sentences and the humming in the backgrounds is very similar to Lana del rat

    Giulietta XO

    I never like it when people make fun of Josef, BUT, and I say this with great pain in my heart, he does have a weird resemblance of the actor that plays Robbie (Stefán Karl Stefánsson).....but Josef imo is a way younger and more beautiful version ^_^ <3
    Really, it's only the jaw, forehead and ears XD and then in some pictures Stefan looks like Robbie Williams and Antonio Banderas.....so it might be my eyes XD
