Look away, 
Look away from the past 
 Think ahead, 
 Think ahead so you'll last another day 
And the days are so long 
And you'll get by 
But gettin' by is just another way to say half dead 
And you think you'd rather live your life instead 
Of just gettin' by 
Don't you know, 
Don't you know its bound to keep you up all night 
Wonderin' where and how it all went wrong that night 
It all went wrong 
So keep in mind 
Keep in mind you're not to blame 
 Bitter tears 
 Bitter tears can fall like rain 
On your fields 
And those fields need that rain 
So look away 
And think ahead 
And live your life 
And cry those tears 
Cry bitter tears
