  • It's hard to rely on my good intentions
    When my head's full of things that I can't mention
    It seems I usually get things right
    But I can't understand what I did last night

    And it's hard to rely on my own good senses
    When I miss so much that requires attention
    Have to laugh at myself sometimes
    And I can see that I'm not blind

    There's little relief
    Give us reprieve, oh
    For all the things I've left behind
    I'm positive that I'm not blind

    I'm not afraid things won't get better
    But it feels like this has gone on forever
    You have to cry with your own blue tears
    Have to laugh with your own good cheer

    And it's hard to rely on my good intentions
    When my head's full of things that I can't mention
    It seems I usually get things right
    But I can't understand what I did last night

    There's little relief
    Give us reprieve, oh
    And imagining the world outside
    I'm positive that I'm not blind

    I can't be hard on you
    'Cause you know I've been there too
    Learned a lot of things from you

    Oh, when life gives little relief
    Give us reprieve, oh
    And when everyone is cold as ice
    I clinch my fists and close my eyes
    Imagining the world outside
    And I can see that I'm not blind Writer/s: Dean Dinning, Glen Phillips, Randel Guss, Todd Nichols
