I Only Know The Chorus ©

There's a little bit of sadness in my soul
How and when it got there, I don't know
It seems I let myself go down, just to pick myself back up
Expecting, who, how, when and where to tell me what

My best thinking got as bad as my eyesight
So I never sought or found a guiding light
I didn't want to seek the truth, for fear of what I'd find
It was easy, if it never crossed my mind

It took a little bit of bad, to make it good
And quite a lot of can't, before I could
I did my share of crying, until I heard the laughter
And I put myself before instead of after

There's a little bit of joy within my heart
I feel it just before the music starts
I got lost among the trees, I couldn't seem to find the forest
So I never sang the whole song
Cuz, it seems I had it all wrong
And though I thought I knew the whole song
I only know the chorus

Now I fill my heart with love instead of hate
And found some things that come to those who wait
I often say hello in there, to the angels up above
And I find there's less to blame and more to love

Can you ever make a change and start anew
Bring to mind the past, but follow through
There but for the grace of God, go you and I
Can a caterpillar ever learn to fly

--Repeat Chorus--

--Last Chorus/Refrain--
There's a little bit of joy within my heart
Just enough to make the music start
Now I'm growing like a tree out in the middle of the forest
So I just might learn the whole song
To rewrite what I had all wrong
And though in time I'll sing the whole song
I only know the chorus
I only know the chorus
I only know the chorus
(I was born down at the crash site in May and I'm a Taurus)
