Bonnie Prince Billy – Cycles lyrics
So, I'm down and so, I'm out
But so are many others
So, I feel like tryin' to hide
My head 'neath these covers

Life is like the seasons
After winter comes the spring
So, I'll keep this smile awhile
And see what tomorrow brings

I've been told and I believe
That life is meant for livin'
So even when my chips are low
There's still some left for givin'

I've been many places
Maybe not as far as you
So, I think I'll stay awhile
And see if some dreams come true

There isn't much that I have learned
Through all my foolish years
Except that life keeps runnin' in cycles
First there's laughter, then those tears

But I'll keep my head up high
And although I'm kind of tired
My gal just up and left last week
And Friday I got fired

You know it's almost funny
But things can't get worse than now
So, I'll keep on tryin' to sing
But please, just don't ask me now
