wonderful


"hey, ain't life wonderful? wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... isn't everything wonderful now?"

i close my eyes when i get too sad
i think thoughts that i know are bad
close my eyes and i count to ten
hope it's over when i open them

i want the things that i had before
like a star wars poster on my bedroom door
i wish i could count to ten
make everything be wonderful again

hope my mom and i hope my dad
will figure out why they get so mad
hear them scream, i hear them fight
they say bad words that make me wanna cry

close my eyes when i go to bed
and i dream of angels who make me smile
i feel better when i hear them say
everything will be wonderful someday

promises mean everything when you're little
and the world's so big
i just don't understand how
you can smile with all those tears in your eyes
tell me everything is wonderful now

please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

i go to school and i run and play
i tell the kids that it's all okay
i laugh aloud so my friends won't know
when the bell rings i just don't wanna go home

go to my room and i close my eyes
i make believe that i have a new life
i don't believe you when you say
everything will be wonderful someday

promises mean everything when you're little
and the world is so big
i just don't understand how
you can smile with all those tears in your eyes
when you tell me everything is wonderful now

no
no, i don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
no
no, i don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

i don't wanna hear you say
that i will understand someday
no, no, no, no
i don't wanna hear you say
you both have grown in a different way
no, no, no, no
i don't wanna meet your friends
and i don't wanna start over again
i just want my life to be the same
just like it used to be
some days i hate everything
i hate everything
everyone and everything
please don't tell me everything is wonderful now...

i don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

father of mine

father of mine
tell me where you have been
you know i just closed my eyes
my whole world disappeared
father of mine
take me back to the day
yeah when i was still your golden boy
back before you went away

i remember blue skies
walking the block
i loved it when you held me high
i loved to hear you talk
you would take me to the movie
you would take me to the beach
you would take me to a place inside
that’s so hard to reach

oh

father of mine
tell me where did you go
yeah you had the world inside your hand
but you did not seem to know
father of mine
tell me what do you see
when you look back at your wasted life
and you don't see me

i was ten years old
doing all that i could
it wasn't easy for me
to be a scared white boy
in a black neighborhood
sometimes you would send me a birthday card
with a five dollar bill
i never understood you then
and i guess i never will

daddy gave me a name
my daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
my daddy he gave me a name

oh yeah
oh yeah

daddy gave me a name
daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name

yeah
yeah
oh yeah

father of mine
tell me where have you been
yea i just closed my eyes
and the world disappeared
father of mine
tell me how do you sleep
with the children you abandoned
and the wife i saw you beat

i will never be safe
i will never be sane
i will always be weird inside
i will always be lame
now that i’m a grown man
with a child of my own
and i swear i'll never let her know
all the pain i have known

then he walked away
daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name
then he walked away
my daddy gave me a name

then he walked away (yeah)

i will buy you a new life

here is the money that i owe you
yes you can pay the bills
i will give you more
when i get paid again

i hate those people who love to tell you
money is the root of all that kills
they have never been poor
they have never had the joy of a welfare christmas

i know we will never look back

you say you wake up crying
yes and you don’t know why
you get up and you go lay down
inside my baby’s room

yeah, i guess i’m doing ok
i moved in with the strangest guy
can you believe he actually thinks
that i am really alive

i will buy you a garden
where your flowers can bloom
i will buy you a new car
perfect shiny and new
i will buy you that big house
way up in the west hills
i will buy you a new life
yes i will

yes, i know all about that other guy
the handsome man with athletic thighs
i know about all the time before
with that obsessive little rich boy

they might think you think you’re happy
yeah maybe for a minute or two
they can’t make you laugh
no they can’t make you feel the way that i do

i will buy you a garden
where your flowers can bloom
i will buy you a new car
perfect shiny and new
i will buy you that big house
way up in the west hills
i will buy you a new life
i will buy you a new life

i know we can never look back

will you please let me stay the night
will you please let me stay the night
no one will ever know

i will buy you a garden
where your flowers can bloom
i will buy you a new car
perfect shiny and new
i will buy you that big house
way up in the west hills
i will buy you a new life

i will buy you a garden
where your flowers can bloom
i will buy you a new car
perfect shiny and new
i will buy you that big house
way up in the west hills
i will buy you a new life
