Cut it down go put it away 
Take an inside look on the outside 
Another day 

Take time look at the sunshine 
Have mine it's better on you anyway 

Nobody's perfect all the time 
But I know you 
And you know me
And it's alright 

Waking up gonna buy me some shoes 
Take a long walk out of the hindsight start anew 

Look around maybe buy a new topcoat 
Stop moping the rain's gonna rain through 
Rain through on you 
Yes it's true that 

Nobody's sunny all the time 
But I know you 
And you know me 
And it's alright 

And it's your life 
And it's my life 
It's our life in the city 

And it's your life 
And it's my life 
It's our life in the city 

Got a new piece out in the hills 
Plant a seed I'm in need of a break from the fire drill 
Repaint where all the paint ain't 
Got a clean slate and maybe we can buy a thrill 
I'll foot that bill 
Yes I will

Nobody's busy all the time 
Oh thank God that I know you 
And you know me 
And it's alright

Oh, you cut it down go put it away 
Take an inside look on the outside 
Another day 

Take time look at the sunshine 
Have mine it's better on you anyway 

Cut it down go put it away 
Take an inside look on the outside 
Another day 

Take time look at the sunshine 
Have mine it's better on you anyway
