How It Is
Here's a little trap

That sometimes catches everyone

When today's as far as we can see

Faith in bright tomorrows

Giving way to resignation

That's how it is - How it's going to be



It's such a cloudy day

Seems we'll never see the sun

Or feel the day has possibilities

Frozen in the moment -

The lack of imagination

Between how it is and how it ought to be



Here's a little trap

That sometimes trips up everyone

When we tire of our own company

Sometimes we're the last to see beyond the day's frustrations

That's how it is - how it's going to be



It's such a cloudy day

Seems we'll never see the sun

I feel the day is all uncertainty

Burning in the moment - trapped by the desperation

Between how it is and how it ought to be



Foot upon the stair

Shoulder to the wheel

You can't tell yourself not to care

You can't tell yourself how to feel

That's how it is - Another cloudy day
