No more crying, I feel so high, I borrowed me some wings to fly...

lyrics

Sadness For A Grin

Hello old friend summer wind
I'm glad that you come 'round again
I haven't seen you for so long
'cause cousin winter blew so strong
And his cold embrace left a mark
On my skin

Darkness, my lifetime companion
Flip a coin, you lose the gamble
I never seen this way out before
I'm slipping through your haunted door
I've been too long under your spell
I say:: "Good luck, now wish me well"

No more crying, I feel so high, I borrowed me some wings to fly
Who said I was never going to win
I paid my debts, I done my chore, I never felt this way before
And I hope it's never going to end

Now that I know you are mine
And stick with me, come rain or shine
I'm turning in my sadness for a grin

Hello smile on your sweet face
I'm glad you're keeping up the pace
Be my comfort when I'm down
See the laugh behind the frown
My second thoughts on loneliness
They don't mean a thing

I've been down this road before and it ain't what I'm looking for
You're stronger, when you're strong enough to bend
I've got something on my mind that helps me leave the fears behind
Now I found a lover and a friend

Life's a roller-coaster-ride
Now that you are by my side
I'm turning in my sadness for a grin
