lyrics

It’s like kissing with your teeth clenched, running through the pouring rain drenched in anger and sorrow and fear of tomorrow, cause you never gave today a proper chance!
And it’s like swimming in a song, holding your breath for too long, and running through quick sand while reaching out your hand and kicking and screaming throughout your own party, cause you got mustard on your skirt!

Oh, It could be worse!
It could always be worse!
I promise you, I promise you it could be worse!

Than playing nurse to a bunch of self-diagnosed patients who are wearing on your patience, you can feed them beer and lies until the night finally dies, and you go home.
You’re still alone.
Until the day, the day is reversed.

And it could be worse!
It could always be worse!
I promise you, I promise you it could be worse!

Than biting your tongue to spite your heart,
Wanting to speak the truth, but not able to start,
Than to hold your soul under lock and key,
Constantly scared of the girl you’d be,
Or the boy so afraid of what he don’t know
Too proud to ask, too smart to let it show,
He’ll look into your face,
And he’ll smile to your face,
And he’ll tell you, he’ll tell you he LOVES you!
And you’ll never believe him.
For whatever reason.
Til’ he gives up and lets you go-oh-oh!

And it could be worse!
It could always be worse!
I promise you, I promise you it could be worse!

Cause there’s one way out,
You have to face yourself beyond the shadow of a shadow of a shadow of a shadow of a shadow of a doubt!

And what could be worse?
Oh what could be worse?
Can somebody tell me what could be worse?
Oh, there’s somebody who’s got it worse than you’ve got it,
Cause you, you could be dead or stupid!
Same thing!
