Lyrics


Whatsoever I've feared has come to life Whatsoever I've fought off became my life Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile Sunspots have faded and now I'm doing time Now I'm doing time 'Cause I fell on black days I fell on black days

Whomsoever I've cured, I've sickened now And whomsoever I've cradled, I've put you down I'm a search light soul they say But I can't see it in the night

I'm only faking when I get it right When I get it right

'Cause I fell on black days I fell on black days

How would I know That this could be my fate? How would I know That this could be my fate? Yeah

Uh, uh, uh Uh, uh, uh Uh, uh, uh

So what you wanted to see good Has made you blind And what you wanted to be yours Has made it mine

Don't you lock up something That you wanted to see fly Hands are for shaking No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don't mind a change I sure don't mind a change

Yeah, I sure don't mind, sure don't mind a change I sure don't mind a change 'Cause I fell on black days I fell on black days

How would I know That this could be my fate? How would I know That this could be my fate?

How would I know That this could be my fate? How would I know That this could be my fate?

I sure don't mind a change
