I'm workin' on my forward thinking
Workin' on my self-control
Process this ugly mess
Figure out how to make it whole

Choke down a bus ride to the city
Chase it with a trip to the East Side
Seems like overtime
I'll get so numb that I won't mind

Some days I actually forget
That this is really something
One look from you and that is it
And this is really something
Bein' hard is hard, so sick of it
And this is really something good
This is really something good now

Go change the oil, go get the tail light fixed
Go buy some groceries in the dark
Earth shakes, gets me arranged
And I realize I've missed the mark

Some days I actually forget
That this is really something
One smile from you and that is it
And this is really something
Bein' hard is hard, so sick of it
And this is really something good

Some days I actually forget
That this is really something
One smile from you and that is it
And this is really something
Bein' hard is hard, so sick of it
And this is really something good
This is really something good now

    General CommentThis song (like all his songs) is amazing. It's about how you can get caught up in the mundane tasks you have to do each day, but "one smile" and you remember that life is "really something." Life is more than what you do.
