   Because nobody ever said life's easy
Because everybody is somebody and nobodyis everybody
Because smiling isn't always the right answer
Because tomorrowI'll have a different father
Because when it rains you're mysunshine
Because pulmonary loops confuse me
Because roses are red andviolets are blue
Because my dog got my pillow dirtyBecause she called and youdidn't tell me
Because today is Wednesday
Because your purple is mypink
Because ice-cream isn't always chocolate
Because "Ya never know, yaknow?"
Because tomorrow isn't far away
Because tomorrows buildup
Because time slips away
And I miss you when you're gone.
