laugh

I was feeling good i was
Feeling fine seemed like
About everything in life
Was settling in on mine

I had a car and a house and a big tv
A beautiful wife and a family
Walked out on the porch it was a sunny day
I said man, how come it never seems to wanna stay this way

I learned about the nature of human kind
When I got everything I was looking to find
Yeah things were going great I had a pretty good run
But it didn’t really feel like a whole lot of fun

People always tryin’ to push you down
If they see you with a grin they gotta make you frown
They said misery loves company, but
there’s something upon which we can all agree it’s

Laugh – and the whole world laughs with you
Weep – and you weep alone
Laugh – and the whole world laughs with you
Weep – and you weep alone

Yeah, once in a while you get in a groove
You’re hittin’ it all with nothing to prove
A breeze at your back surrounded by friends
Hoping to yourself that it never ends

You got a stream of people coming into your room
And nobody’ll say what we all assume
They’re right there with you when it’s going well
But the minute you need ’em, they say you can go to hell

Laugh – and the whole world laughs with you
Weep – and you weep alone
Laugh – and the whole world laughs with you
Weep – and you weep alone
