Today might suck
But I don't care
Because I know

But that's just me
And I've moved on
Cuz shortly I know
Today will be gone

It's impossible to linger
In what you can't change
So I won't be sad
Because to me that's lame

Tomorrow is there
I know it is
Just look again
And another chance
Is always waiting
