Six Days
Hits Live


Everybody likes a celebration
Happy music and conversation
I'd be lying if I said I didn't have the blues
In the corner there's a couple dancing
From the kitchen I can hear them laughing
Oh I wish I was celebrating too

I know this night won't last forever
I know the sun is gonna rise sometime
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow
And I know this heart is gonna mend just fine

So pardon me for my disposition
I wish I didn't have to sit and listen
They're playing the same old songs on the stereo
She's been lying since the day I met her
I be better off to just forget her
Oh I would rather be lonesome all alone


Suddenly there's a strange vibration from my head to my toes
Filling me with a strange sensation
Somebody's telling me, somebody's saying


Repeat Chorus
