MICHAEL
Sunlight
Through the window
Across from your bed
Beauty is still
Can you see it?
What more can you want?

Is this real life?
Is this real life?

Heartbeats
Of your children
Asleep in the next room
Trust so still
Can you hear it?
What more can you want?

Is this real life?
Is this real life?

MICHAEL AND JONATHAN
Is this real life?
Why do we seek out ecstasy
In all the wrong places?
Why is it hard to see
That heaven can have simpler faces?

MICHAEL
Warm breath
Of an angel

MICHAEL AND SUSAN
Awake next to you
Love’s so still
Can you feel it?
What more do you want?

MICHAEL, JONATHAN AND SUSAN
Is this real life?
Real life
Is this real life?
Is this real…
Is this real life?
Is this real life?
Real life
Is this real life?
Is this real…
Is this real…
Is this…

MICHAEL
Is this real life?
