token idiot lyrics – good riddance

what should i say
i guess things didn’t go my way
but you insist on shining light
on my greatest failures
fallible is me

but you can see
this isn’t my reality
it’s just the way
things go for us

someone out there
saying life just isn’t fair
but it’s the simple disappointments
and the great mistakes that make you wiser
but you can see
this isn’t my reality
it’s just the way
things go for us

and what about the times you set me straight
still left me waiting at the gate
it’s just the way things go for us
for us

i’m sick of trying at your way
did you really think i’d make it anyway
i pulled this splinter from my face
found another worthwhile cause to take your place
i woke up ok
it’s just another rainy day
and i’m feeling the same way as you
