Today you made me realize there are ups and downs.

Turn-a-rounds that’ll flip your world on its side.

That we only work hard towards easy times that already past.

That a day that starts of bad wouldn’t be last day you’ll ever laugh.

Tough times lay ahead, but right now’s the worst.

What hurts the most is that I wish it wasn’t true.

I’d rather have a nightmare than think this is real.

I don’t want to know all the things I learned today.

Because knowledge equals power and power just brings pain.

Today you made me realize that we’ve been playing games

And calling names I hope we don’t really mean.

That I'm getting too old to be waiting for you to come around.

Dreaming of a boy who’d love me with a passion, make-believed.

Tough times lay ahead, but right now’s the worst.

What hurts the most is that I wish it wasn’t true.

I’d rather have a nightmare than think this is real.

I don’t want to know all the things I learned today.

Because knowledge equals power and power just brings pain.

Today you made me realize you can’t trust the one that lies.

Says the word forever but just watches as you cry.

No, I won’t keep you to your promises I know you can’t keep.

Because knowing that they’ll break is the deepest hurt to me.

Tough times lay ahead, but right now’s the worst.

What hurts the most is that I wish it wasn’t true.

I’d rather have a nightmare than think this is real.

I don’t want to know all the things I learned today.

Because knowledge equals power and power just brings pain.
