THE WORST DAYS
Dan Ogan, Sam Cooper

Wake up every morning in the pouring rain,
I can't believe what she said or the pills I have to take,
Find myself running like a clock unwound,
With the sound of my music, but no one's around.

Put on a sweater, go on my way,
Just another retune, just another lost day,
Times I wonder what, what I wanna say,
Hell to you, oh hell, okay!

CHORUS
The first days (the first days) seem so long,
The best days (the best days) turn out wrong,
The worst days (the worst days) make the best songs.

Get things ready, have to pay your dues,
Run into heartache, have nothing left to prove,
Put on a smile, oh, hold a tear inside,
Park me on the ocean on a Key Island plane ride.

Sun's beating down hard on an empty room,
After reading the announcement of you and your new groom.
Every rose is gonna die after it's bloom,
Nothing is forever and that's too soon.

CHORUS
The first days (first days) seem so long, (so long, so long)
The best days turn out wrong, (turn out, turn out wrong, turn out wrong)
The worst days make the best songs.

BRIDGE
I'm glad I don't have to spend another lonely night with you,
(Now it's just me and my story and an old guitar),
I'm glad I don't have to spend another lonely night with you,
(A couple broken strings but at least she ain't a liar),
I'm glad I don't have to spend another lonely night with you.

CHORUS
The first days seem so long, (so long, so long)
The best days turn out wrong, (turn out, turn out wrong, turn out wrong)
The worst days make the best songs.

CHORUS
The first days (the first days) seem so long, (no more lonely nights with you)
The best days (the best days) turn out wrong, (no more lonely nights with you)
The worst days make the best songs.
