The clock curses and the calendar sings the pendulum of your emotions swings
those dark days of youth you thought were gone threw you a surprise party
so you stood on the mountaintop and never worried about the drop
but all you came away with was a real bad nosebleed.
Lightening strikes in the middle of the night you sit straight up and turn on the light
you had a dream you were dying and nothing flashed before your eyes
sometimes you can never win sometimes you have to be your own best friend
and sometimes that's one more friend than you've got.
Is it so hard to believe
Bm C G
will you trust the whole world more than you trust you
you can question everything you know
but some things will always remain true.
I know people who like to spend the day taking everything the wrong way
just think of all the girls named Gloria who must've thought that song was about them
you can get mad, you can apologize but you'll face yourself when you realize
that you've got no clothes and you're not even the emperor.
Is it so hard to believe ....
Today the firehouse burned down the doctor's dying in this town
and every real estate office on Main Street is up for sale
but there's plenty of roads and plenty of white lines no exit ramps, no speed limit signs
but on every road there's three lanes out of town and only one lane in.
