Wonderful (by Everclear)

I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
I hope it's over when I open them
I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
Make everything be wonderful again
I hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
I hear them scream, I hear them fight
Say bad words that make me wanna cry
Close my eyes when I go to bed
And I dream adventures* that will make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say
Everything will be wonderful someday
Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world's so big
I just don't understand how,
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now
na, na, na, na, na, na, nahhh (repeated)
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
I go to school and I run & play
I tell the kids that it's all ok
I like to laugh so my friends won't know
When the bell rings I just don't wanna go home
Go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I don't believe you when you say
Everything will be wonderful someday
Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world is so big
I just don't understand how,
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

na, na….

I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now.
I don't wanna hear you say
That I will understand someday
No, no, no, no
I don't wanna hear you say

No, no, no, no
I don't wanna meet your friends
And I don't wanna start over again
I just wanna my life to be the same, just like it used to be
Some days I hate everything
Some days I hate everything
Ever wanna live with me?
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

na, na….

Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
I don't wanna hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
