“A Good Time To Be Alive” is about gratitude. It’s about enjoying life and appreciating the miracles – big and small - happening all around us every day - making our lives richer and happier.
“Just keep your mind and eyes open wide. It’s a good time to be alive.”


A Good Time To Be Alive – lyrics and chords
Music and Lyrics by Alan Babbitt

Intro – Em C G D Em C D

Em C G D
This is a time of miracles. They happen every day
Em C G B7
Evidence empirical says It's meant to be that way.
Em B7 Em A
But we don’t need a miracle to appreciate this world.
Just keep your mind and eyes open wide
G D C D Em
It's a good time to be alive.

Em C G D
Computers and the Internet. Airplanes and cars.
Em C G B7
Life-saving medicines and Rovers on Mars.
Em B7 Em A
Dictators toppling and there’s cameras in our phones.
G D C D C G D C D Em G
What's next to arrive? It's a great time to be alive

G D Am7 Am7 ish
True all these good things are happening.
But it's clear that things could be better.
Em D C Em
There's way too much bloodshed, hunger and pain
Em7 B7
I know we could solve it - We just need to evolve a bit.

Em C G D Em C D

Verse 3
Em C G D
Hands on the steering wheel - Eyes on the road
Em C G D
I don't know what’s a-comin’ - It's a brand-new episode.
Em B7 Em A
I know we're on a journey and It doesn't matter where.
G D C G C Em D C D Em
Just enjoy the ride - It's a good time to be alive.

C G D Em C D Em
