Laspata/DeCaro — Faith Hill
One of my favorite songs is The Secret of Life, performed by Faith Hill, written by Gretchen Peters. Many songs lyrics are obscure, many songs lyrics are inane. This song's lyrics are full of Zen, yet comprehensible, wisdom. One of the lyrics validates something I've known for years: The secret of life is gettin' up early, the secret of life is stayin' up late.
On CMT's version of Faith Hill's music video, when she sings 'Marilyn stares down from the barroom wall', there's a picture of Marilyn on the wall, but in the YouTube video version there is no picture, it's gone. What's with that? Something to do with the Monroe estate?
My wife knows that Faith Hill is a woman I'd run off with in a moment's notice, but it's something my wife doesn't worry about for even a moment. 'The secret of life is to find the right woman'—I got that one covered.
