Cycles

This song is by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and appears on the EP Ask Forgiveness (2007).

This song is a cover of "Cycles" by Frank Sinatra.
So I'm down and so I'm out
But so are many others
So I feel like tryin' to hide
My head 'neath these covers
Life is like the seasons
After winter comes the spring
So I'll keep this smile awhile
And see what tomorrow brings

I've been told and I believe
That life is meant for livin'
So even when my chips are low
There's still some left for givin'
I've been many places
Maybe not as far as you
So I think I'll stay awhile
And see if some dreams come true

There isn't much that I have learned
Through all my foolish years
Except that life keeps running in cycles
First there's laughter, then those tears

But I'll keep my head up high
Although I'm kind of tired
My gal just up and left last week
And Friday I got fired
You know, it's almost funny
But things can't get worse than now
So I'll keep on tryin' to sing
But please, just don't ask me how
