Woke up again

The sun breaks through my window, opening eyes.
Laying there, I don't have a reason to, but I'll rise.
No girlfriend, no job, no money, so I don't know why.
I guess to greet the brand new day, and tell he dog hi.
Life hasn't exactly fallen into place after school got over.
I tried everything, but I'm still looking for my four leaf clover.
My luck will catch on soon, I'm just not exactly sure when.
So what gets me up out of bed each morning again and again?
Its hope, that today is my day, that it will better soon, at least I hope so...
