Same four chords and the same old theme
I can't seem to get away from the TV screen
And though I've failed it can't be said I haven't tried
Still I can't help feeling that I'm trapped inside

There's no easy way out, is there?
I'm gonna have to get a job
Not gonna rob a bank
Not gonna win the lottery
Oh, but I won't cry
I'm gonna be all right

Cause there's a time for singing in the rain
And there's a time for playing in the snow
There's a time for laughing and for crying
There's a time to stay and time not to stay
I don't know

Same four chords and the same old song
I can't even believe I've been sitting here this long
And though I've tried it can't be said I haven't failed
Still I can't help hoping I'll hear from the resumé I just mailed

When I was younger I thought I'd be fine
I was gonna be a millionaire
Everyone would stop and stare
When they saw my name was up in lights
Oh, but I'm a big boy now
I don't mind I won't cry
I'm gonna be all right

Cause there's a time for pleasure and for pain
And there's time for yes and time for no
There's a time for living and for dying
There's a time to stay and a time to say
I'm coming home
You swore that I would be a king
And now nothing's enough cause I want everything
Kill the fatted calf cause I'm coming home
