Story Behind The Song

No idea... It just came to me as I was playing the piano one day. I can't actually play the piano but I wanted to write a song using it anyway and wanted to write something a bit different.

She wakes up at five again
and tries to fall asleep again
but she can't forget the memory
of the boy she used to be
she opens her eyes and stares at the floor
and wonders what she came here for
sometimes it seems like someone else's dream
but she tells herself
it's a wonderful life
Recovering in the south of Spain
she cries herself to sleep
and dreams of waking up in her own skin
she lived and died by the surgeon's knife
to be born again as a perfect wife
to the lover of the boy she used to be
it's a wonderful life
