Lyrics



Monday I felt like an astronaut walking on the moon for the very first time
I was feeling fine, I was ready to fly
Tuesday I felt like I was racing time in the eco challenge, felt like I was dying
On a mountain side, I wanted to cry

Well, I cry me a river then I poke holes in my boat
I try to deliver then I put sharks in my mote
Go to cross the Sahara I poured out my water
I’m lighting these fires and living on the wire

Wednesday I felt like a little kid lost inside the mall, I needed you to tell me
Everything’s ok, I want you to stay
Thursday I felt like an animal locked inside a cage about to suffocate
All that I could do was run away
Well, I cry me a river then I poke holes in my boat
I try to deliver then I put sharks in my mote
Go to cross the Sahara I pour out my water
I’m lighting these fires and living on the wire

I don’t know why, I don’t know why
I don’t know why I sabotage myself
Leave me hanging out on the line
Making happiness hard to find

One day I’ll tire of wasting time
lying on my back watching clouds roll by
I’ll be ready to fly

I don’t know why
I don’t know why
I don’t know why
