Sometimes the world just throws a day at you that just doesn't seem fair.
One step forward and two steps back
I retreat from your heart attacks
Days like today are getting me down

I hoped for the sun so bright and warm
But the wind's blowing cold in a summer storm
Days like today are getting me down

All alone here and feeling blue
Tears in the rain,
The sky she’s crying too
Days like today are getting me down

I just read that there’s another war
I don’t think this world can take much more
Days like today are getting me down

Think I‘ll drink to the soldiers I knew and befriended
There in the dust and the blood their stories ended
When it’s quiet at night I still hear the wounded crying
those that survived the war but lay there dying
or trying
Days like today are getting me down
