We're out of time
And out of money
What made me think this was the land of milk and honey?
It's time to go
And no more dreaming
Walk in the rain under streetlight
Pavement gleaming

I'm kind of blue
But I'll be okay
I wasn't looking for a fairy tale anyway
"Hello, my name is Happy,
Let me sing to you
And maybe we can be friends?"

The peace and laughter came to such a savage end
But that's all right
That's all right

It's all right
It's not for her
She was taken with a strong disinclination
She's in your head
You wrote her resume
She's gonna find herself another occupation

Take out a loan
Enroll in classes
You're working nights and now you can't afford new glasses

"Maybe together
We can break it down,
And build something new"

A flash of colour and she's gone
The one you hoped to pursue
You'll never know if all you had to say
Was "I love you"

I love you too
But that's all right

(Long Instrumental Part)

It's all right, that's all right...

And when you're done
They say you're pretty
You've got another small apartment in the city
It's only words
No real story
No eucatastrophe, no hidden allegory

Go for a walk
No destination
Stay off the train, there'll be no one at the station

"I'm gonna see you on the other side
I'm counting on you today"

And fearless promises will only fade away
But that's all right
That's all right
That's all right
That's all right
That's all right
That's all right
That's all right...
