From bad luck
I'm not getting stuck
To good things
I'm tired of dying

Wondering why we gave up
Comes and it fades away
The sun's up and lighting the sky
It just passed me by
I'm not looking backward

Wondering why we gave up
Comes and fades away
I don't know what love is
And when I get scared

I'm still gonna smile
Once in a while

Wondering why we gave up
Comes and it fades away
Good things keep moving ahead
I'm living instead
