Whoa-a-a woh, whoa-a-a woh.
Whoa-a-a woh, whoa-a-a woh.
Whoa-a-a woh, whoa-a-a woh.
Whoa-a-a woh, oh.

You see it all in my smile,
You hear it all in my laugh,
The way I walk, you hear me talk,
And know I'm no longer sad.
I got no reason to smile more now than I've ever had-
I open up my eyes and realize that nothing's quite that bad...

I've got a different approach to dealing with emotion.
Keeping control of my boat, while drifting on this ocean.
Keeping my head to the sky, keeping tears out of my eyes;
Unless happiness be the reason that I decide to cry.
And life's too short to dwell on all that's wrong.
Stand up now,
stand up now and I promise not before long...

You'll be feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
So much better.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
Much better today.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
So much better.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
You'll be so much better.

I know about down and out,
I know about when it gets tough,
Losing my fight, can't see the light,
And you just wanna give up.
I know about bein' depressed.
But needing someone to love.
I also know by standing up and saying enough is enough...

Oh, I've got a different approach to dealing with emotion.
Keeping control of my boat, while drifting on this ocean.
Keeping my head to the sky, keeping tears out of my eyes.
Unless happiness be the reason that I decide to cry.
And life's too short to dwell on all that's wrong.
Stand up now,
Stand up now and I promise not before long...

You'll be feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
So much better.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
Much better today.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
So much better.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
You'll be so much better.

(Ohh whoa. Oh whoa, whoa)
(Oooh)

I feel like if I try, I could fly away right now.
All because I've finally found my smile.

(x2)
And you'll be feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
So much better.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
Much better today.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.
So much better.
You're feeling better today.
Much better today, much better today.

You'll be so much better.

    General Commenti agree. this song helps me feel better about myself rather than going into that emo stage after my break up with my ex. now i will just live my life with my head up, and who knows, maybe someday i will end up with my ex again if it was meant to be.

    General CommentI agree, this song is so uplifting, it's made me cry a few times, but that's just how you get through things, by letting it out, and letting go. If they come back, then yeah maybe it was meant to be. We're here to experience things and to just be the most happiest we can be. In this time apart, you'll find out more things about yourself, and have more 'me - time' then ever before. I've met new people, I've got more friends than ever, and I'm alot happier, but I still will always have a soft spot for my ex.

    :)
