Dolly Parton – Better Day lyrics

Now we don't know what heaven looks like
But we've seen enough hell right here and right now.
But when the road is the roughest
And the problems are the toughest,
Or when the times are the hardest
And that ol' sky turn the darkest
You gotta keep faith 'cause I believe there's a better day.
And those ol' blues, why they're gonna just roll aon away!
I know that are, listen to me...
All that's blue ain't sky and sea
Some of that blue's bound to get on me.
But the blues don't come to stay,
They'll move away on a better day.
Troubles and woes and misery
Ain't gonna get the bet of me.
Lift the shades, fix my gaze
On a better day clear away.
Better days just up ahead
When sorrow ain't sleepin' in my bed,
When people ain't messin' with my head.
There's a better way, there's there's a brighter day.
Oh, there's a better day with clear skies
Hope and promise on the rise.
Oh, the future, well, it's lookin' bright, on a better day.
Look away, look away.
There's a better day.
Oh better day just up ahead
When sorrow ain't sleepin' in my bed,
And people ain't messin' with my head.
There's a better day, there's a better day.
Oh, all that's blue, it ain't sky and sea
Some of that blue's gonna fall on me;
Oh, the future's lookin' bright,
There's a better day, look away look away.
