Imagine Dragons – Real Life

Real Life

[Verse 1]
She says that the world is a broken mess
It's always on her mind
She cries at the news when the shots ring out
Every single time

[Pre-Chorus]
No, I cannot fix it, no, I cannot make it stop

[Chorus]
So I said, "Turn your phone off, only look me in my eyes
Can we live that real life, real life?"
Oh, hey, "Turn your phone off, only look me in my eyes
Can we live that real life, real life?"

[Verse 2]
Prays on her knees as the towers fall
To a God she does not know
She's begging him to stop the mess
The Boston bombs blow (Ooh)
She says, "How could I ever believe in something
That would step aside and watch?"
And I got no words to say 'cause I think I lost my faith
But I thank you for the day when everything will be okay

[Pre-Chorus]
But no, I cannot fix it, and I cannot make it stop

[Chorus]
So I said, "Turn your phone off, only look me in my eyes
Can we live that real life, real life?"
Oh, hey, "Turn your phone off, only look me in my eyes
Can we live that real life, real life?"

[Bridge]
I wish I had the answers
Something you could hold too
Only thing that's real to me is
You

[Chorus]
"Turn your phone off, only look me in my eyes
Can we live that real life, real life?"
Oh, hey, "Turn your phone off, only look me in my eyes
Can we live that real life, real life?"

[Outro]
Oh, hey (Real life, hey)
Real life, real life
Oh, hey
Real life, real life
Oh, hey
Real Life is one of the songs that were not included in the standard version of the Origins album, and which only got on the Deluxe version of the album. Dan Reynolds said in an interview that the Real Life track was the last straw after which the musicians realized that the album was ready for release. Dan noticed that Imagine Dragons had never been keen on much love lyrics, but this year he had a hard time getting through a divorce and therefore Origins album consists of 80% of love songs. Until the last moment, the musicians were not sure whether to release such a disc ... But when the Real Life track was written, everyone unanimously said: “Yes, the album is ready!”
