Good days, bad days, I've had a few of those,
Same old story -I know how this song goes,
At least I did, but now I'm not so sure,
Nothing's in its place, nothing's certain anymore,
Birds fly, trees sway, why can't I be like that?
Happy knowing what I am, in fact and leaving be?
But truth has been obscured,
I am only human and I'm always wanting...more.
Oh, the world is a place and they say it's on our side,
But I wonder, is there comfort in those moments when we die?
Now I see, Mr. King, this was in the books you gave me,
Which I read, disbelieving, thinking poets are depressed,
Oh, Mr. King, I have changed, I confess.
Good days, bad days; I've had a few of those.
Same old story, I know how this song goes
At least I did - but now I'm not so sure.
Nothing's in its place, nothing's certain anymore.
Birds fly, trees sway - why can't I be like that?
Happy knowing what I am, in fact, and leaving be?
But truth has been obscured.
I am only human and I'm always wanting more.
Oh, the world is a place
And they say it's on our side
But I wonder - is there comfort
In those moments when we die?
Now I see, Mr King,
This was in those books you gave me
Which I read, disbelieving,
Thinking poets are depressed.
Oh Mr King, I have changed, I confess.
Oh, those good days I remember well;
Tape on windows, wintertime was hell.
But it was fun, and people there were kind -
There was good work to be done,
And I learnt to take my time.
And the world was a good place,
And in days were where I lived.
I imagined life had purpose, and
I'd something good to give.
And Mr Cave played along
On the battered hallway piano.
Oh, every love song a secret to be shared
Oh Mr King, how I wish I was back there.
Now I've got 10 things lined up on a shelf -
Reasons to be cheerful for myself.
I don't know why you're showing me the sky.
You say you see heaven,
I see hell but want to try.
And the world is a place, and
I pray it's on my side
But I'd find greater comfort if I
Just lay down and died.
I don't know what's become
Of the girl who once knew sunshine;
What's become of the girl
Who knew sorrow but was strong?
Oh Mr King, you were right all along.
Oh Mr King, you were right.
Mr King, you were right - I was wrong.
