When will I ever have time for fun
It feels as if it has been a century since I have seen the sun
I work all day,
Sometimes all night
I am so tired of this endless cycle already
And it is just begun
Will I ever have time again for fun?
For smiles, and the sun?
They say if you work hard,
Than you play hard
Work and play
And work and play
Will that help take the pain away?
Probably not, guess I’ll just go smoke some pot
What can I do?
What can I say?
That will help this pain go away?
I’ve taken all the pills
And done all the drugs
But still my secrets are swept under the rug
What can I do
When no one else is like you.
But now, I am not playing at all
I feel like all I do is fall
Or maybe just give up too easily.
Sometimes my thoughts are just like an infectious disease
The world doesn't see what they do to me
Am I happy, or
Am I sad?
Why do I get so very mad.
Do you see the light?
No, not yet.
But one day it’ll shine,
Shine happily upon I
