Walking along, singing a tune
For all the people passing by me

Somebody stares
Smiles like a bear
Tells me how lonely it's been lately
And then much to my surprise
I was smiling in the most peculiar way
Oh, feeling happy
I'm alive and well today
Something I never thought I'd say

For the moment I'll believe
That the people in the scenes
Reading trendy magazines
Are the future I've been dreaming of
A generation of those
Who don't seek comfort, but the good of all things

Don't waste your anger on your dad
'Cause you're getting beat up after class
'Cause that's life
Don't burn in bed or you'll end up
Just like everyone who's trying to hate yourself
And your life

I'll be changing lives
Everyday, for the rest of your life
But the first one needs to be mine
Yeah the first change is your own mind
Walking along, singing a tune
For all the people passing by me

Somebody stares
Smiles like a bear
Tells me how lovely it's been lately

And then much to my surprise
I was smiling in the most peculiar way
Oh, feeling happy
I'm alive and well today
Something I never thought I'd say

    BEAUTIFUL song. Great message. It gets better, people! Listen to Emanuel!
