Optimism

Optimism

i relish in the pain
it's been here so long
maybe my home is in
that i live on the heartache
is that so wrong?

yeah, i know it
more than anyone else
you say to
resign yourself

such a clever girl
she is such a strong type
except when she
will grasp at
straws and wonder why?

yeah, i know it
more than anyone else
yeah, i know it
i resign myself


and maybe i can learn to love it
and maybe that's not so bad
and i'll see if i can find good
in the pain i've had


and i will make this
my best attempt to be
joyful with a
small touch of
melancholly...

yeah, i know it
more than anyone else
yeah, i know and
i resign myself
i know, yes
i resign myself
