Life's been so good to me Has it been good to you Has it been everything That you expected it to be Was it as good for you As it was good for me And was it everything That it was all set up to be (Now is that gratitude) Now is that gratitude Or is it really love Some kind of reality That fits just like a glove Now is that gratitude For everything I've done Or is it something else That's got me on the run In the middle of a big tornado On the tip of everyone's tongue In the belly of a giant whale All the girls just wanna have fun In the look of a frightened neighbor In a big warm bed at night In a broken elevator In the teeth of a dog that bites In the middle of a revolution In the look of a child's face In the silence of the dinner table In the stillness of disgrace (I used to eat little girls I knew for breakfast I used to fly high up in the sky I used to chew up rocks and spit out gravel I had a heart as cold as ice) But when I think of you And what you've done to me You took away my hope You took away my fantasy I once had lots of pride The world was in my hands I lived way at the top Of castles made of sand Ooh . . . I dream of you sometimes Ooh . . . I dream of you sometimes In the middle of a big tornado . . . Life's been so good to me . . .
