The Boy Who Cried Yes

This song is by Red Herring and appears on the album A Quarter Down, and Just Getting Started (2011).

We kicked down the block
With some stones as our flock
Of World Cup boredom busters

We hatched quite the plan
This weekend, you said,
"Man, count me in! X it out! This is gonna be grand!"

Saturday comes and I am
Half the crowd I was expecting to be
I guess your calendar has a few more squares than mine.

And now its time,
To make a choice.
Just please get back to me
When you've found a voice.

I know it's hard.
The line is drawn.
The thing about two sides,
There's one you must be on.

And on with the game,
Who's first in, who's first out.
But the answer's the same,
Which leads me to doubt
You're making as many people
As happy as you think.

A letter or two,
Is all it would take,
But three's company, so why don't you
Make a few more promises you can't keep,
We'll see who wins out at the end of the week.

And now its time,
To make a choice.
Just please get back to me
When you've found a voice.

I know it's hard.
The line is drawn.
The thing about two sides,
There's one you must be on.

We can't all be happy all the time,
But sometimes it's better than being left down

We can't all be happy all the time,
(One up, one down, a smile a frown, but still an honest one)
But sometimes it's better than being left down
(It's better than a faux grin from the boy who cried yes)

We can't all be happy all the time,
(One up, one down, a smile a frown, but still an honest one)
(Who cried)
But sometimes it's better than being left down
(It's better than a faux grin from the boy who cried yes)
(Who cried yes)

We can't all be happy all the time,
(One up, one down, a smile a frown, but still an honest one)
(Who cried)
The boy who cried yes.
(The boy who cried yes.)
(The boy who cried yes.)

And now its time,
To make a choice.
Just please get back to me
When you've found a voice.

I know it's hard.
The line is drawn.
The thing about two sides,
There's one you must be on.
