Jim Stevens – Life's Not As Bad As It Seems lyrics

You were the one who stood alone
Where the shadows set you free
Alone in the dark seems a whole lot worse to me

Nobody noticed you, nobody cared about your misery
You gave up hope and learned to cope by insensitivity

But open your mind
You will see
Choose your hell
Or ecstasy
Don't lose hold of your golden dreams
Life's not as bad as it seems
Y'know, life's not as bad as it seems

Those talking heads with their vicious tongues
They yapped at your expense
It burned inside, made you feel like dyin'
But you can't change past events

It's time to move on, you've done no wrong
Stop swallowing your pride
Lashing out, so filled with doubt
Time to get off this ride

So drop your guard, lose you defense
Calm your mind and it'll all make sense
Leave your baggage behind and travel lean
Life's not as bad as it seems
Y'know, life's not as bad as it seems

Ain't no one to blame in this tortured game
No one's left untouched
You gotta realize the real prize
Is that you're learning so much

So give it up, let it go
Say hello to yes and goodbye to no
The shadows'll lift, you'll finally see
Life's not as bad as it seems
Y'know, life's not as bad as it seems
