Good Day


Lyrics & Info

Performances (73)

Say to myself 
"Self, why are you awake again?" It's one a.m. 
Standing at the fridge wide-open, staring 
Such a sight, fluorescent light, the stars are bright 
I might make a wish, if I believed in that shit 
But, as it is, I might watch TV 
Cause it's nice to see people more messed up than me 
I say to myself, as I smile at the wall 
Let myself fall

"It's gonna be all right, 
No matter what they say 
It's gonna be a good day 
Just wait and see 
It's gonna be all right 
Cause I'm all right with me 
It's gonna be, it's gonna be 
It's gotta be..."

I shiver, shut the door 
Can't think standing here no more 
I'm alone, my mind's racing, heart breaking 
Can you be everything I need you to be 
Can you protect me like a daughter 
Can you love me like a father 
Can you drink me like water 
Say I'm like the desert, just way hotter

The point of it all 
Is that if I should fall 
Still your name I'll call

"It's gonna be all right, 
No matter what they say, 
Gonna be a good day 
Just wait and see 
It's gonna be okay 
Cause I'm okay with me 
It's gonna be, it's gonna be 
As long as we laugh out loud 
And laugh like we're mad 
Cause this crazy mixed up beauty's all that we had 
Because what's love, but an itch we can't scratch 
A joke we can't catch, God, but still we laugh

Get back in bed, turn off the TV 
You say, "It'll be okay, baby, just wait and see" 
It's gonna be all right, it's gonna be okay 
It's gonna be a all right, just wait and see 
It's gonna be all right, no matter what they say 
Gonna be a good day, just wait, just see 
Gonna be okay, cause I'm okay with me 
It's gonna be 
It's gonna be 
It's gonna be okay

Uh-oh, I'm awake again. It's one a.m. 
Staring, such a sight, 
Well, at least the stars are bright.

Good Day
