i met this girl the other day
sitting alone on the wednesday train
i said, "what's wrong? you look so sad."

she said she's got something inside
that she's not willing to confide
so i said, "could i give some free advice?"

"don't worry bout your problems now, baby,
cause it just don't matter when it comes down to the fact.
everybody's got problems now, baby,
and life's too short to keep them bottled up inside."

cause i know
that life is like a racecar speeding down this one way street
that'll go
anyway
it feels like heaven down this one way street
cause i know
everything will be fine

i met this guy the other day
sitting alone on the sunday train
dressed up with nowhere left to go

he said, "if there's one thing that i've learned,
through all these cigarettes i've burned,
you've got to stop and look around."

he said that hindsight's clearer than a crystal ball
if he had a chance to stop and do it all over again
cause when you're waiting for the sounds of the gavel
you don't want it to end with a fistfull of regrets inside

cause i know
that life is like a racecar speeding down this one way street
that'll go
anyway
it feels like heaven down this one way street
cause i know
everything will be fine

cause i know
that life is like a racecar speeding down this one way street
that'll go
anyway
it feels like heaven down this one way street
cause i know
that life is like a racecar speeding down this one way street
that'll go
anyway
it feels like heaven down this one way street
cause i know
everything will be fine

    General CommentI love their new CD... Allister is one of the best bands I've ever heard! This is such a great song too... I wonder why not too many people have commented on it... oh well, all I hafta say is that I hope Allister never sells out, cuz that'd be a huge tragedy! my favorite part of this song is:
    "don't worry bout your problems now, baby,
    cause it just don't matter when it comes down to the fact.
    everybody's got problems now, baby,
    and life's too short to keep them bottled up inside."
    I think that's one of the most important things to remember in life!

    General Commentthis song really helped me when i found out my dad was diagnosed with liver syrosis. I was worried for so long i kinda forgot to live. Even though it was scary experiece you still have to remeber you have a whole life in front of you to live. life to short to worry cause eveyone's got problems and yuo have to learn to deal with them.

    General Commenti'm not usually an allister fan, but this song is just so great. kinda optimistic, doncha think? this is the song to listen to if u have a problem or are feeling sad. "cause i know that everything will be fine". and usually it is.
