Better Days

What are you hiding from

You are part of the sum

What has been going on

Your confidence has gone

You have seen better days

You have lived better ways

What are you waiting for

Answers that question more

Unexpected they will come

Are you expecting some

You have seen better days

You have lived better ways

Only time will tell

What will come of you

Only crime could sell

What you're trying to

Where are you heading to

What plans will you pull through

With trouble in the wings

Will you risk anything

You have seen better days

You have lived better ways
