Track Name: The Day Don't Wear A Smile
The Day Don't Wear A Smile
---
Looking up that hill
And the sun won't shine
Guess it never will
Not in my lifetime

she's gone now, she's gone now
the day don't wear a smile, and I guess it never will

Waiting on that silly bus
Watching women smoke a joint
There's a crosswalk, in the street
But I really don't see the point

cause she's gone now, she's gone now
the day don't wear a smile, and it probably never will

Guess the winds they do change
Then things calm down
Things get quiet, and drive you insane
From the empty sound

cause she's gone now, she's gone now
the day don't make a sound, and I know it never will

Track Name: That's Alright
That's Alright
--
Girls they come, then they go
Boys start young, and they get old
You're off the path, you're down the hill
Have another glass, take another pill

and you're day is getting old
and you're body's growing cold

The sun beats down, the grass it grows
You're hair falls out, and that's how it goes
You're down at the diner, Jimmy's got a plan
Done figured out, how to stick it to the man

and everything seems old
you're best friends ain't nothing but souls
and that's alright

and your days are moving fast
tomorrow's day, might be your last
so you decided to make a change
forget the past, forget the pain

The kid's these days, well they got a clue
They gonna chase that dollar, what the hell else would they do?
And they'll get old, and they'll figure it out
Wishing for more days, as the whole thing plays out

they'll watch their own kids get old
praying they ain't buying what they sold
and that's alright

uh you decided to make a change
forget the past, forget the pain
a rainy day and you're gonna smile
you ain't felt this way, in quite awhile

You're all alone, it's the holiday
Gonna call your ex, you got so much you wanna say
You're living for others, like you always should've been
You done figured it out, we're in the same boat
From beginning to the end

and you tell her you were wrong
ain't a grudge in your heart, how about a new start?
and now the day it brings a smile
you ain't felt this way, in quite awhile
and now the day it brings a smile
you ain't felt this day, in quite awhile

And that's alright, and that's alright
And that's alright, it's gonna be alright

And that's alright, and that's alright
It's gonna be alright, and that's alright
