Lyrics

A smile has never been hard to give
But I have learnt that for some it is
I saw an ad on a bus last night
Two pounds a month could help save a life
But that's not for some, that's not for some, it's only for some
If it's not for one special someone then it shall be for none

And I'm not sure just how much more of this I can bear
I try to talk to God but it seems even he doesn't care
I've seen the new one he's building, and my, how he's made not one mistake
He told me, 'son, I promise you this one will be so much better than the last one I made'

All my life I've tried to fit in
And it's been hard given the colour of my skin
But that's okay because I know
That in a thousand years or so
There will be love, there'll be enough love to cushion all the falls
And wistful thinking never stopped us from wanting it all

But I'm not sure just how much more of this I can bear
I try to talk to God but it seems even he doesn't care
I've seen the new one he's building, and my, how he's made not one mistake
He told me, 'son, I promise you this one will be so much better than the last one I made'

As I walk through the valley of death, I am alone, I am alone
And all those words that you once said, they no longer take me home
As I walk through the valley of death, I am alone, I am alone
And all those words that you once said, they no longer take me home
I am alone, I am alone, I am alone

And I don't know how much longer I can wait
He told me, 'son, I promise you this one will be so much better than the last one
It will be so much better than the last one I made'
