Good Riddance – Token Idiot lyrics

What should I say
I guess things didn't go my way
But you insist on shining light
On my greatest failures
Fallible is me

But you can see
This isn't my reality
It's just the way things go for us

Someone out there
Saying "life just isn't fair"
But it's the disappointments and the
Great mistakes that make you wiser

And what about the times you set me straight
And still left me waiting at the gate
It's just the way things go for us

I'm sick of trying at your way
Did you really think I'd make it anyway
I pulled this splinter from my face
And found another worthwhile cause to take your place
I woke up ok
It's just another rainy day
And I'm feeling the same way
As you
