Track Name: Life is Beautiful
When I rise and see the sun
I know my day has just begun
I thank oh jah I'm a lucky man
And when I feel the morning breeze
and see the birds up in the trees
flapping their wings and living free

Live it the best way that you can
life is beautiful, so just live on
Life is beautiful, Live it the best way that you can
life is beautiful, tomorrow you may be gone
