Today I met a man sitting on the corner
He was holding out his hand, had a couple quarters
That he saved up in a can
I think I heard him whisper that you'll never understand
Damn, no place to call his home, said he lives alone
So he's forced to roam
With a shopping cart filled to the top with everything he owns
A smile on his face, yeah there he stood
He was holding up a sign saying 'life is good'
Man, I wonder what it'd be like, a day in his shoes
I guess when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
He said "Boy, don't you pity me, I'm still standing tall
As a matter of fact, I got it all"

I got life, I got love
I got faith and that's enough
We feel sorrow, we feel pain
But there's sunshine after rain
So I'm alright (You'll be fine, take it one day at a time)
So I'm alright (Said you'll be fine, take it one day at a time)

Today I met a man, makes a couple hundred grand
Always stressing out, got 2 cell phones in his hand
Lives the country club life, think he's on his third wife
Never makes it home for dinner 'cause he's working every night
5 cars in the garage, 4 he's never driving
Always wanting more than just the life that he's been given
Got a strange obsession with metal possessions
Now he's always poppin Prozac to battle his depression
He's got everything he's ever wanted, and he's always trying to flaunt it
But now it's all coming back to haunt him
Mistaking what's important life for all the pointless stuff
For some people, everything's just not enough

I got life, I got love
I got faith and that's enough
We feel sorrow, we feel pain
But there's sunshine after rain
So I'm alright (You'll be fine, take it one day at a time)
So I'm alright (Said you'll be fine, take it one day at a time)

You gotta keep going, never give up
You only live once, might as well live it up
Every breath I take is a reason to believe
That the finest things in life came to me for free

Said you gotta keep going, never give up
You only live once, might as well live it up
Every breath I take is a reason to believe
That the finest things in life came to me for free

I got life, I got love
I got faith and that's enough
We feel sorrow, we feel pain
But there's sunshine after rain
So I'm alright (You'll be fine, take it one day at a time)
So I'm alright (Said you'll be fine, take it one day at a time)

I got life, I got love
I got faith and that's enough
We feel sorrow, we feel pain
But there's sunshine after rain
So I'm alright (You'll be fine, take it one day at a time)
So I'm alright (Said you'll be fine, take it one day at a time)

Yeah, you got nothing to lose
