It was a cold 3AM at JFK
I guess you stayed because you wanted to stay
And we went from zero to everything all in a day
And then Kennedy took you away

I thought of a short robe that was keeping you warm
And the moments that make up your life until you wake up
You sit on a swing in the dark with a girl
And she tells you she wanted to kiss you
And you know the worst part of a good day
Is hearing yourself say goodbye to one more possibility day
It goes on and on

I go west but your weather has changed
You're just scared
I mistake it for strange
When you want me to leave then you start to believe I should stay
But I gotta get out of LA

It seems like the short days are over
Cause you just don't sleep in the daylight so I don't sit up nights
I lie on my back on the top of a hill
And your body is breaking the sky because you're shaking
And the worst part of a good day is knowing it's slipping away
That's one more possibility day that is gone

We were waiting for Winter this year
But you came and it never appeared
Me and you, we know too many reasons
For people and seasons that pass like they weren't even here

Now "Living in smiles is better", you say
But we carry the burdens of all of our days
So I'm scared that you'll leave and you're scared that I'll stay
It's an impossibility day
And we only saw half the ballet

I said goodnight Goodbye
It seems like a good thing so you know it's a good lie
You can run out of choices
And still hear a voice in your head when you're lying in bed

And it says that the best part of a bad day is knowing it's okay
The color of everything changes
The sky rearranges its' shade and your smile doesn't fade
Into a phone call and one bad decision we made

And the worst part of a good day is the one thing you don't say
And you don't know how but you wish there was some way
So you pull down the shades and you shut off the lights
Because somehow we mixed up "Goodbye" and "Goodnight"

And the one you won't say is
"Everyone knows possibility days are impossible."
It just feels wrong
So wrong
Still you're gone
Long gone

    My InterpretationAnother great love (?) song by Adam. A song about regret, heartache and how sometimes it's tough to let go. It's two people who have similar ideas, views, yet somehow it just doesn't fit. They keep trying, fooling each other that it works. Even though they are thinking the opposite. However, like mot Adam lyrics, it fails and the man is left alone. Yet, he knows it will be alright, " and the best part of worst day is knowing it will be okay".
