Everything Happens

When you say

It’ll all work out someday

Well I can’t wait that long

 

It’s just that now

My eyes are open wide

To the lies that I’ve been told by everyone around me

 

I am not the type to stand down

And though you’ve seen it all before

Doesn’t mean you know the best way

So I’m walking out that door

 

I am looking for an answer

And this is one you never heard

Life’s not something that you wait for

Satisfaction doesn’t just appear

 

When you say 

My troubles will just go away

I know that you mean well for me

But it’s not what it seems

 

When you say 

Everything will be okay

I know that you mean well for me

But it’s not what it seems to me

 

Empty words and promises

Hear them clear but I can’t listen

Maybe years will give me time

To figure out what I’m missing

 

When you say 

My troubles will just go away

I know that you mean well for me

But it’s not what it seems

 

So don’t say 

Everything will be okay

I know that you mean well for me

But it’s not what it seems
