Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: Beautiful Racket
Lyrics for Album: Between Here and Gone [2004]



So your day begins like this

Wondering what might have been

Old regrets and chances missed

Borne away on some lambent wind

The job's ok, so it doesn't inspire

Thoughts of leaving it all behing

You used to have dreams of setttin the world on fire

All you want now is peace of mind



Chorus:

And a beautiful racket, it whispers and roars

The bitter and sweet, between the truces and the wars

The noice and the quiet, the courage and the fear

And all of the wisdom between a smile and a tear



You do your dreaming in traffic jams

You do your running in shopping malls

You do your breating the best you can

Between car pools and cell phone calls

Who cares, you'll never live in Paris

So what, you'll never travel by Lear

How do some of us learn what matters

While others never get to hear



And a beautiful racket, it whispers and roars

The bitter and sweet, between the truces and the wars

The noice and the quiet, the courage and the fear

And all of the wisdom between a smile and a tear



Hold on, hold on



So your day will end like this

Turning slowly down your street

Silent worlds of kitchens lit

Front yards full of fallen leaves

Trees are bare, the garden's done

Another season gone to earth

Before you blink a new one comes

To remind you what the old one's worth



And a beautiful racket, it whispers and roars

The bitter and sweet, between the truces and the wars

The noice and the quiet, the courage and the fear

And all of the wisdom between a smile and a tear



Such a beautiful racket...such a beautiful racket...

hold on...such a beautiful racket...hold on...
