WondefulĖ Everclear

I close my eyes when it gets too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
I close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope its 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
Would figure out why they get so mad
I hear them scream
I hear them fight
They say bad words that make me wanna cry
I close my eyes when I go to bed
And I dream of angels that make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say everything will be wonderful some day

Chorus
Promises mean everything
When youíre little and the world so big
I just donít understand
how you can smile with all those tears in your eyes
and tell me everything is wonderful now

Please donít tell me everything is wonderful now

I go to school and I run and play
I tell the kids that itís all ok
I laugh a lot so my friends wonít know
When the bell rings that I just donít wanna go
I go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I donít believe you when you say
Everything will be wonderful some day

Chorus

No no no no
I donít want to hear you tell me everything is wonderful now
No no no no
I donít want to hear you say that I will understand some day
No no no no
I donít want to hear you say that you both have grown in a different way
No no no no
I donít want to meet your friend
And I donít want to start over again
I just want my life to be the same
Just like it used to be
Some days I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything

Please donít tell me everything is wonderful now
Please donít tell me everything is wonderful now ..
Please donít tell me everything is wonderful now ..

I donít want to hear you tell me everything is wonderful now

Please donít tell me everything is wonderful.

Everything is wonderful now.
Everything is wonderful now.
