These days I sing joyful songs
I know a lot in the world are sad
But the day has brought me a fortune I must fulfil
In times like this I forget my guilt
That in my wants I spell doom for a few.
My weaknesses are the pain of a friend
But I have sworn never to pile up more dirt on the road
My offenses will never alter my defenses
A day shall come when I shall embrace the love the judges me
And reward me with the seeds of my deeds
But in joy my spirit will shine its light.
One day at a time.
