    *** Lyrics ***

    Verse 1:

    Wake up early and the birds are tweeting
    Now normally I’d return to sleep and
    Wouldn’t even dream of leaving my bed
    And would need to be dragged out kicking and screaming
    But for some reason today is different
    I don’t know why but I feel energised
    Ideas fly into my mind
    So I jump out my bed and I pick up and pen and write
    I’ve been trying this song a fortnight
    But every time it’s just come out poorly
    But now the words seem to form perfectly
    And the song virtually writes itself for me
    Within an hour the whole thing is finished
    But I need a singer to complete the hook
    And I ain’t got Nina so Sharleena’s
    Gonna explain why I’m feeling good!


    Birds flying high, you know how I feel
    Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
    Leaves drifting on by, you know how i feel
    It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
    And I’m feelin’ good

    Verse 2:

    It’s night time and I got a show to go to
    And I feel a little nervous even though you’re sposed to
    My brain’s telling me all the ways it could go wrong
    But my heart deep down knows it won’t do
    - It doesn’t help that I’m stone cold sober
    Coz I know if I only have one Corona
    I’ll forget my lyrics and lose my composure
    So I don’t have a drop til it’s totally over
    I walk out to a sea of faces
    In the hope that this place won’t be complacent
    But it appears that my fears are baseless
    Because all the people in here embrace us
    We nail it like a piece of wood
    And it goes better than we ever dreamed it could
    We say thanks as we leave and we mean it
    Coz shows like these are the reason we’re feeling good!


    Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
    River running free, you know how I feel
    Blossom in the tree, yeah you know how i feel
    It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
    And I’m feelin’ good

    Verse 3:

    Wake up late on a Sunday midday
    Girlfriend taking all of the duvet
    I nudge her and she ain’t budging
    But she looks so comfy I don’t even begrudge it
    I wonder is she gonna wake up soon?
    I’m hungry so I go to leave the room
    She jumps me and pulls me back under the covers
    And before long one thing leads to another
    We spend the rest of the day in our PJs
    As we binge on our favourite show
    We must look like Dr Dre’s DJ the amount we play
    The Next Episode
    Now it’s 8 and we ain’t even moved
    So we place an order for takeaway food
    Lying in bed eating pud
    Who would’ve thought, being so bad could ever feel so good?


    Stars when you shine, you know how I feel
    Scent of the pine, you know how I feel
    Freedom is mine, you know how i feel
    It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
    And I’m feelin’ good Show less
