Every time I think I got it all figured out
Then I draw a blank and my whole world crashes down
So many people have got it worse than me
But that could change tomorrow, ain't no guarantee

How soon we forget to count every blessing
If you think you got it bad, take a look around
How soon we forget, life is one big lesson
Still we make the same mistakes time and time again
And how soon we forget

Got a friend of mine who says he's run all out of luck
But he'll be fine 'cause he just ain't drunk enough
The world is empty when you're slammin' those shots down
How can you be happy, son when the Devil's hangin' 'round?

How soon we forget to count every blessing
If you think you got it bad, take a look around
How soon we forget, life is one big lesson
Still we make the same mistakes time and time again
How soon we forget, how soon we forget

Just remember, thank God you're here today
If you got the will you can find a way, oh
How soon we forget, oh baby, oh

How soon we forget to count every blessing
If you think you got it bad, take a look around
How soon we forget, life is one big lesson
Still we make the same mistakes time and time again
Well, there's a message to this madness here my friend
Will we ever learn before the story ends?

Soon we all forget, how soon we forget
Soon we forget, oh
Well, take a look around and you will see
Soon we all forget, oh, oh

So many people have got it worse than me
Oh, can't you see how soon we all forget?
