The Smart Money

It's time I had better. i really need better.

I need cool, sunny  days

and wetter weather.

i never dreamed I'd be prayin this hard

for a good sioaking rain.

There's  arson fires

and peeling out tires.

They're givin out first class tickets for the

crazy train.  .

There's bad and worse.

One foot in the grave

a step away from the hearse

Before I go, I really need to ask for better.

better is  what I need

seeing another good spirit die

troubles me more than you'd believe.

i hope I don't have to wait around forever

to see a world that's better.

A longer hug

a sweeter kiss.

Heroes who lead with their hearts

and speak ftheir

 minds

even if they dont' always win.

If I have to wait ten thousand more years

to stop burning bridges and get along better.

I don't want a  spoonful better,, a cup a dram, an ounce or

a thimble full better. Even if facing impossible odds

and the history books are all against it.

I am holding out

aren't you holding out

The smart money's still holding out for better.
