This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
All my bills have all gone paid
I crashed the car again
I broke the bank

This coulda been a slow song
A laundry list of all my wrongs
But at the end of the day
This is my beautiful disaster piece I've made
Gonna laugh I know the pain is here

This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
There's got to be a reason for the rain

I don't understand the numbers
But my faith is in the math
And come someday these twisted ties will tangle
And we'll look back and laugh

And to all the hearts I've broken
And the ones that once broke mine
I've got suspicions, all will be forgiven in time
Gonna look you in the eye and say

This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
There's got to be a reason for the rain

And if it ever gets bad
I mean stay in bed bad
I'll move to Nova Scotia
Forget the life I had
I'll be up at 9 each morning
Down by the shore
Collecting things that fell off boats in storms
Well ok so I might never
But it's nice to know the option's there

This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
There's got to be a reason for the rain

And it doesn't help
That i keep biting my lip in the same place

    General CommentThis song reminds me of what I'm feeling like now. Sort of being down in the dumps, and I mean down in the dumps. Nothing can go right, and everyday turns out to be worse that the last. There has just been so much going on this past year for me. I guess this song reminds me that someday everything will be better, and there is always something to look forward to.

    General Commentat this point in my life, NOTHING seems to make any sense anymore, especially with members of the opposite sex. i love the line "all will be forgiven in time." it's just a constant reminder that no matter how much things seem to suck, eventually it'll be alright, and that the confusion will clear and i'll understand everything.

    General Commentthis song gives me so much hope. my life is anything but the greatest, and when i hear john song these lines:

    "And if it ever gets bad
    I mean stay in bed bad
    I'll move to Nova Scotia
    Forget the life I had
    I'll be up at 9 each morning
    Down by the shore
    Collecting things that fell off boats in storms
    Well ok so I might never
    But it's nice to know the option's there"

    it just makes me smile and make me think and realize i'm not alone. i'm sure everything will make perfect sense someday, but for now i'm just going to have 2 deal w/ it.

    John Mayer is a fantastic singer//songwriter, and gives me so much hope for the music industry in general...his grasp on human emotion is, for lack of a better word, fantastic.

    Anyone know when he's releasing a new album?

    General Commentyeah, i have the same version of the song. i would have like pee instead of $hi&, but it was the first time i ever laughed while listening to a john mayer song.

    this song isnt on an album, ist just a song that he does.
