lyrics

Fall:

You'd better have some soft feet
shift in and out of your own shadow
in-between the shades of grey
(in-between the shades of)

You've gotta take chances
recognize the bullshit laughter,
and judge their prying glances
(pull apart their fake romances)

You're gonna have bad days
Where every task seems Herculean
But maybe you'll get lucky
and its bark is worse than its bite

You've gotta stay sober
keen, collected and composed
when everyone is feeling faint
(when everyone is feeling)

You'd better learn to suffer
the loneliness can almost kill
before the dawn of day
(before the dawn of day)

You're gonna have bad days
Where every task seems Herculean
But maybe you'll get lucky
and its bark is worse than its bite

You're gonna have good days
but in the end, that time can't last you
their bark is strong as your blight

try as you might

Winter:

And soon the questions come
where did my life go,
can I change?
I once had all this time

But soon you'll find yourself
sinking, deeper
back against the wall
keen to take the fall

Spring:

Who are you to point the finger?
placing blame on yet another
you and I
cut from the same cloth

Who are you to denigrate me?
first exalt and then forsaken
throw me to the dogs
like common fodder?

Ooh

Ooh

And soon the questions come
where did I go wrong
and soon you'll find yourself
by the end, the place
Right where you belong

Summer:

You'd better have a stone heart
assassins hide around every corner
Knives prepared to kill
(and you know he will)

You'd better hide your weakness
Even at the ripe age of thirty
there's strength in your bones
(At least, so they know)

You're gonna have bad days
Where every task seems Herculean
But maybe you'll get lucky
and its bark is worse than its bite

You're gonna have good days
but in the end, that time can't last you
their bark is strong as your blight

try as you might

Try as you might, far as it can take you
Try as you might, hope that it can save you

Epilogue:

You'd better have soft feet (You'd better have a stone heart)
you'd better learn to suffer (You've gotta stay sober)
You've gotta take chances (You'd better hide your weakness)
If you think you're gonna survive
in this world.
