"Don't Be Sad" as written by and Dave Mason....
Seen a lot of things we didn't want to see
But I'm glad we did
I know a lot of times we fell out of line,
But we fell back in

I think we lost the keys to the kingdom,
Before we'd seen them
Don't be sad
Don't be sad

It took a lot time for us to find the words we'd mean
We spent a lot time before our dimes run out, nickel please
I think we lost the keys to the kingdom,
Before we'd seen them

Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Don't be sad

'Cause we won't have to live this way forever
It's hard to compromise the things we have
Don't be sad
Don't be sad

Talk to one to have faith
Money can not erase
I think we lost the keys to the kingdom,
Before we'd seen them

Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Talk to one to have faith
Money can not erase

    General Commentto all english people: cos is spelt 'cause!! not cos. geez.

    ok, this is a great song. i've been listening to it on repeat for about half a year now (not really, but a lot!) and i think it's great!

    one thing, though: why does he sound sad when he's singing. and what's the song about besides one of his childhood friends who he fell in love with and now she's sad and..yeah. that's what i got out of it..(that was two things, wasn't it?hm..).

    well, hey, talk to you later:)

    General CommentThis song is about things in life going wrong and being delusional in thinking things aren't that bad, because they are, and deep down everybody knows this.
