Kaiser Chiefs - My Life Lyrics




Sometimes you wanna get away from your life,
Sometimes you wanna get away from the horizon
In your eyes

I've fallen off the bottom of your timeline,
I know you've found a better way of spending your life,
Well it's your life

I never want it, I didn't need it,
Now it feels like this is my life.
I never want it, I didn't need it,
Now it feels like this is my life.

I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.
I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.

I woke up in my clothes before the sunrise
I walk along the sand with my shoes in my hand to the daylight
And I realise

The fishermen are heading out to ocean,
The café owner turns on the urn, flips the sign round to open,
And it goes on

I never want it, I didn't need it,
Now it feels like this is my life.
I never want it, I didn't need it,
Now it feels like this is my life.

I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.
I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.

You can tell we had a hell of a life,
You can tell we had one hell of a time,
You can see we had a colourful one from our eyes,
You can tell there is another to come in our eyes.

You can tell we had a hell of a life,
You can tell we had one hell of a time,
You can see we had a colourful one from our eyes,
You can tell there is another to come.

I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.
I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.

I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.
I can work it out, I can live without the night
This is my life, this is my life.

Kaiser Chiefs My Life Comments
  1. Malaria

    Ricky has a pretty neat suit!

  2. Larissa Brito

    This may be kind of a dumb question, but how come Ricky often has a bruised lip in their music videos?

  3. veronika A.

    Me encanta Ricky
    Y estuve escuchando canciones de su grupo
    Arte 🤩😍💯👌

  4. Bárbara Vieyra

    I'm so falling for this band

  5. zuusie Acosta

    i am in 2019 listening this cool song!! ❤ i love them😘

  6. L3n0s3

    beautiful song, bad mastering in my humble opinion... and Ricky looked better with his real teeth!!

  7. Luis Acuña-Cantillo

    I love you Kaiser Chiefs i'm from Barranquilla Colombia

  8. 길랄랄하

    I love this band so much❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💕💕💕💕💕💕

  9. Mojojojojo White Queen

    This is myyyyyy time this is my life😎😎😎😎😍😍😍😍

  10. silvia pecina quintero

    I love this band, I love this song.

  11. HabboPoop88

    The most underestimated band of the 21st century by far

  12. metronomeRX9

    When the chorus hits , I wish I could just give it hearts or multiple likes. I really get into those lyrics

  13. steveasat2

    It's an odd thought but all I can think about is the SMELL of that place. It looks quite fragrant.

  15. A Crissaff

    sometimes you wanna get away and watch vivendo do ócio - Nostalgia

  16. Loz Redpath

    is that the same door from the coming home video

  17. Ángela Souto Romero

    rick siempre está demacrado en los videos, pobriño...

  18. Katya Hern

    Son los mejores <3
    LOS AMO

  19. fretui medak

    the sound of a band shouldn't bother you, that happens when it exhausts the listener, but Kaiser never go through these unnecessary troubles because their sound is fresh, overwhelming and energetic, they cheer up in a simple way and you immediately get used to that particular or pretty unique style whose features are fun and joy! No other word might describe what these guys aim for, they don't look for recognition but they just want to be themselves and to show up with enthusiasm and creativity; right being innovative you can plague the audience and you can reach the fans without bragging, no harassment and no sadness around.

  20. Laura Medley

    I actually... love you guys more and more

  21. Dan Venables

    I can't believe this doesn't have at least twice the views. One of their great forgotten tracks?

  22. Theo Hayes

    Wow. I just kinda assumed that they started to decline as they went on (not gonna lie, Parachute reinforced that a bit), but damn. The quality in this is outstanding. I love how they seem to mature with their stuff as they go on, comparing this to "oh my god" or "everyday I love you less and less" is almost unnecessary (much like with Pink Floyd's music). Great bloody job

    Watchman5

    Did anybody like Parachute? It's one of the worst albums I have heard to come out of a rock band

  23. Batu Will

    2 years ago.

  24. Anaïs Boyer

    It's the first time that i listened this and it was amazing! I falln' in love!

  25. The Ledge

    These guys are too good.

    Batu Will

    not good kaiser chiefs best in the worldddd

    reciprocating social lobotomy

    yeah, but The strokes IMO more better. they can make any song I would be listing without intrusion of it getting boring

  26. Andy Preston

    I love the kiasers (i've got nothing else to say)

  27. Batu Will

    I Can Work It Out. I Can Live Without The Night.
    This song amazing. And video best.

  28. Gfdrq romero

    Ricky love you 💕

    Well it's your life

    I never want it, I didn't need it

    I can work it out, I can live without the night

    This is my life, this is my life
    I can work it out, I can live without the night

  36. Leeann Sz

    time flies

  38. Christian Kitten

    Great song & beach life😉😊

  39. Elliot Farrell

    Could someone explain the purpose of that blue door?

  40. Yoshi Gaming

    Who are the 76 people that disliked this cus there stupid

  41. Sarah George

    *cries because they have reached the level of fame where it is next to impossible to see them irl or be noticed at all* *sniffs* they've been together for nearly 16 years

    Lisa Parker

    they're such nice people, me and my friends managed to meet them at the MTV crashes Coventry gig yesterday they're so nice :) I really hope you get the opportunity to meet them :)

    norahsz

    I met them after Sziget and took a photo with four of them (Peanut wasn't there unfortunately) and they're super nice people so don't give up hope!! :)

    norahsz

    I even got a hug from Ricky :) so you could definitely be noticed, it might be a little difficult to get close to them but once you're there, I can guarantee you they will be nice to you

    OG Gallery Crew Leeds

    I can remember seeing them all over Leeds in 2004 in their old recording studio and seeing them sat on the wall of the old peacock pub having a pint before the Leeds united matches and seeing them in the old records shop in Leeds and getting to see one of their first gigs in the old cockpit night club great days for them.

  42. The Red Naxela

    Sometimes you want to get away from your own life?
    So what? A coma?

  52. Qusai Farid

    cant belive only 500k views !!!!!!!

  53. Michael Pacheco

    gostei do clipe

  54. Georgia Bee

    Has anyone else realised that in these music videos from Education, Education, Education Ricky is always standing (or in this case laying) in front of that blue door, like all videos and songs are linked to tell a story... it's interesting...

    The Red Naxela

    +Georgia Brooks yeah I was just thinking that XD

    tamseel naveed

    +Georgia Brooks yeah i saw that too and i think the story is, is that he was trying to run away with his friends by building a boat using scraps on the beach (one of them bring the blue door) then his boat malfunctions or crashes so his friends drown and die but he is swept to shore by laying on top of the blue door. He also dies and that's what carries on to the other music video, *Meanwhile in heaven*, where he is in heaven and then to the other video *coming home*.
    This is only just my opinion tho

    Yaren Kuzucu

    +tamseel naveed This is perceptive!

    GPvS

    +Ruben F. Rivera he was hit by a car

    Ruben F. Rivera

    Oh, @Gijs van Stee​ but all the videos are in the same time line?

  55. Friend ffion Williams

    love life

  56. harpothehealer

    Yeah I don't often make comments on pop bands but I really rate this Band very very  good and particularly this track which interested me to post. Great stuff.

  57. Vostok MC

    mor de deus essa musica e otimamente foda cara :o

  62. misterhighw4y

    Idk there is something about this song that is really liberating and uplifting :) Was great to hear this live back in February too ;) <3

  63. fizzsy

    It gets so frustrating to see comments from people who compare bands to other bands and who don't like the bands in the video. It confuses me. Kaiser Chiefs are not Arctic monkeys, or whoever, they are kaiser chiefs. If people don't like their music, then don't listen to them. What's the point of adding a comment to say they are not as good as another band? Or they lack talent or musical technique......? They sell records, tickets for gigs and they get large groups of music fans dancing to their beats...... I am not so keen on take that, so I wouldn't waste my time listening to them and then leaving negative comments ! Rant over, feel better now.....

  64. TheRenzoDude

    my god Ricky is soooooooo hot :3

  66. christophe mendez

    I think you have done a huge job and restores espoire has stevie is that I think it will make a big thank you cariere MR ricky wilson

  67. alterlife

    Vivendo Do Ócio - Nostalgia

  68. cosmochat

    Their performance in Liverpool had me see the strength of this song. The lyrics are intended for people whose life's been made of some suffering, lack of opportunities and bad decisions. That moment of failure in the video when they have to go back to the coast echoes back to the social criticism under their whole discography.

  69. toby corbett

    this is my poooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 
    lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. someone nice

    Damn, your music is perfect. There's a tremendous possibility that I've fallen in love with all of you. Maybe you guys could consider throwing a concert in Beirut.

  86. Chat estrella

    ....no, I wasn't quoting the title, they literally are my life.

  92. Only Walt

    tan buena música y tan pocas visitas  :\

    Magdalena Orquera

    Pero al menos son visitas reales...estamos acostumbrados a ver millones de visitas en otros videos, pero en su mayoria son de videos de artistas sobreestimados cuyas discográficas inflan esos numeros con visitas de bots (falsas). Lo mismo pasa en otras redes, donde algunos artistas estrellas cuentas a sus seguidores de a millones y gran parte de esos seguidores son falsos. Asi funciona. Al menos me alegra saber que estos chicos no necesitan recurrir a esas trampas

  93. Nathan Leroux

    Such a great tune, this song is so self degrading lol. The lyrics are pretty powerful and sound rather dark yet truthful.

  94. Cara do Trivago

    Alguém anda ouvindo muito vivendo do ocio...

  95. João Marcos Gomes

    🌟 This is my fave song from This album

  96. diego antonio portales mancilla
