Bad times come, bad times go away
But sometimes threaten to stay
Unlike better times they persevere
To destroy my dreams in the fray
And it makes mad, and makes me sad
It makes curse every good thing that I've ever had so...
When it gets to rough and I've had a enough o' this pain in my heart
And my mind...
SO I CAN KEEP ON BELIEVIN'
SO I CAN FACE ANOTHER DAY,
SO THAT NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BECOMES
THE BAD WILL GO AWAY, OH YEAH
THE BAD WILL GO AWAY
Ol' time trouble, I've seen it pass
I used to think that I wouldn't last,
But rising from my knees it's clear to me why,
A deeper love will wipe scales from my eyes,
Now I'm alive....
