stranger things

stranger things have happened
stranger things have happened to me
stranger things have happened to you
it's true

better times have passed
better times have passed me by
better times have passed right by
my eyes

i've lived long enough to see
things i've wished i'd never seen
things i wish had never been
around for

i've lived long enough to do
things i've wished i'd never done
things i hope will never come
any more

when i look in your eyes
the clouds part
and my heart
knows joy again
a smile on my face
is in the place
of the sadness
that was there before
