The day starts like the rest I've seen
And all the carbon copy of where I've already been
Days keep coming one on one, and they keep coming

Don't know what I wish I had
But there's no time now
For thinking things like that
I've got too much to do (too much to do)
We've got too much to do, too much to do

Opening up, letting the day in
Pour you a cup and say, "Hello, how ya been?"
Looking around, seeing the same things
It's comforting how some things never change
Never change, never change, do they?

I wouldn't call this place a happy end
But I've been 'round the block and just came back again
Could be worse, so make it work, no place is perfect

Hey, no good in the outside world
Because I feel too much and find it usually hurts
I like the way most of the days look exactly the same

Opening up, everyday starts
Over a cup, served with, "Hello, how ya been?"
Welcoming in, whatever the day brings
More of the same things

Check the clock, tick, tick, tock
Don't stop, serve with a smile, hurry up
Fill the coffee cup, and then in a while
Take a breath, when you need to be reminded
That days like these, we can only do the best we can
And do it all again

It's the heartbeat, the center, the lifeline, you enter

Opening up, letting the day in
Pour you a cup and say, "Hello, how ya been?"
Looking around, seeing the same things
It's comforting how some things never change
Never change, never change and never change
