Now and then
I must admit I wonder if I had the chance
To vanquish foes with nothing more than just a glance
How perfect every single day would be

To never wait in a driving rain
For the bus that never came
And not to be the one to blame
For anybody else's misery

Now and then
I contemplate a different way around this day
With nothing more than simple words, so I can say
I'm quite content and happy being me

Walking tall with peace of mind
To leave no childhood dreams behind
Arriving home to always find
Things just as I know they ought to be

Now and then
I must admit I wonder if I had the chance
To vanquish foes with nothing more than just a glance
How perfect every single day would be

To never wait in a driving rain
For the bus that never came
And not to be the one to blame
For anybody else's misery

Now and then
I wake up when it hits me like a ton of bricks
I realize it's me who has to take the licks
No angels up there looking after me

No rainbow with a pot of gold
No cloak to shield me from the cold
No pill to stop me growing old
Dreams fading into stark reality

ORTOLANI, RIZ/NEWELL, NORMAN
