Cut it down go put it away
Take an inside look on the outside
Another day
Take time look at the sunshine
Have mine it's better on you anyway
Nobody's perfect all the time
But I know you
And you know me
And it's alright
I'm waking up gonna buy me some shoes
Take a long walk out of the hindsight start anew
Look around maybe buy a new topcoat
Stop moping the rain's gonna rain through
Rain through on you
Yes it's true that
Nobody's sunny all the time
But I know you and you know me
And it's alright
And it's your life
And it's my life
It's our life in the city
Get a new place out in the hills
Plant a seed I'm in need of a break from the fire drill
Repaint where all the paint ain't
Get a clean slate and maybe we can buy a thrill
I'll foot that bill
Yes I will 'cause
Nobody's busy all the time
But I know you
And you know me
And it's alright
