Symphony

Imagine Dragons

Ever since I was young (coming up, coming up)
Always marching to a drum (bra da dum, bra da dum)
Always focused on me (one one, one one)
Now I wish that I could hold someone (someone)

So tell my mom I love her
Call my baby sister
Should've hugged and kissed her
'Cause life is just a mystery
And it's gone before you know it
So if you love me, won't you show it?

'Cause this life is one big symphony
This night is one for you and me
I'm the strings and you're the timpani
You're my constant tambourine

This life is one big symphony
So glad I've got you next to me
I'm the chords and you're the melody
This life's one big symphony

She was the piano, I'm the xylophone
You can have the trumpet, I'm the saxophone

Life is skipping rope (keep going, keep going)
Finding solace in a note (dote, dote, dote, dote)
Had to struggle when I was broke (so low, so low)
Writing music just to cope (no hope, no hope)

Yeah, life is just perspective
Laughing when you've wrecked it
Smiling when you kept it together
You weathered the storm
At the end of the play
You sang all the way
Doesn't matter how off-key
If you did it your way

This life is one big symphony
This night is one for you and me
I'm the strings and you're the timpani
You're my constant tambourine

This life is one big symphony
So glad I've got you next to me
I'm the chords and you're the melody
This life's one big symphony

Would you care if I played you the flute?
See, it's my favorite one 'cause it's so delicate and beautiful
I pull out the trombone if it's more suitable
Wanna make you smile
It's been a little while since I've seen the white of your teeth
Been a hard year
Lucky the guitar's here

Life is just one big symphony

This life is one big symphony
This night is one for you and me
I'm the strings and you're the timpani
You're my constant tambourine

This life is one big symphony
So glad I've got you next to me
I'm the chords and you're the melody
This life's one big symphony
