"Wonderful Thing"
written by Gail Vareilles and Tommy Faragher

I brought in a cloud of darkness
I brought in a tale of woe
some would come but mostly go
ones that stayed I mostly played
money came but mostly went
paid one bill and it was spent
friends left me they said I changed
treated me like I’m deranged
People round me lyin
Lost my faith in love I wasn’t buyin
Then I started meditating
cheating karma levitating
Found the reason I was living
Opened up my heart to loving
Begged for mercy I said please

What a wonderful thing you did oh yes you did
I prayed to the Lord God above for a love like this
Love like this yes it is
It’s a wonderful thing wonderful thing yes it is

Before I found this place of peace
might have brought in tsunamis
hurricanes and global warming
seemed to some kind of warning
thankful that I saw the signs
opened my eyes no longer blind
omens strong the fates were kind
dreamed I made the stars align
Venus mars and God uniting
Something mazingly exciting
There you were I kissed a frog
A prince emerged from the fog
Found the reason I was living
Opened up my heart to lovin
So happy I changed my life

Bridge: Now I lay me down to sleep
I wonder what the bleep I did
And all the ways I might have sinned
To have been in such a state
Now I found someone to change my fate a real soulmate

Chorus (repeat)
