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
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.
