This is not meant to apologize for any place or time
This is not meant to eulogize for years gone by
All the words I've used to get me by I've memorised

You can't control where lightning strikes
You'd better bet there's always a bright side
I've got a trophy case full of mistakes
Never came in second place

I've been a castaway, I'm flat on my face
Let me set the record straight

I never thought that I would be the one to give up
Doesn't matter anyway

I can't believe that I just made a mistake
O-o-o-o-oh
Guess I'm turning out OK

This is not for you to pick and choose for a better side
This is not meant to be used as proof when I've meant to lie
All the words I've used still hold true
I'll testify

Even black clouds have silver lines
You'd better bet there's always a bright side
I've got a trophy case full of mistakes
Never came in second place

I've been a castaway I'm flat on my face
Let me set the record straight

I never thought that I would be the one to give up
Doesn't matter anyway

I can't believe that I just made a mistake
O-o-o-o-oh
Guess I'm turning out OK

I've got a trophy case full of mistakes
Never came in second place

I've been a castaway I'm flat on my face
Let me set the record straight

I never thought that I would be the one to give up
Doesn't matter anyway

I can't believe that I just made a mistake
O-o-o-o-oh
Guess I'm turning out OK

I've got a trophy case full of mistakes
O-o-o-o-oh
Guess I'm turning out OK

I can't believe that I just made a mistake
O-o-o-o-oh
Doesn't matter anyway
