Oh...... another day .... thrown away
another pain .... nothing gained
Stride on - to the sunlight
Stride on - through the shadows
Stride on - even though it's night
Stride on - to the 'morrow

But Oh.. another day .... thrown away
another pain .... nothing changed

Come every single shoddy thing the world can throw…
They'll find me no downtrodden sod,
No trembling leaf, no breaking clod,
For I, and the wandering sun, do not so quickly pass.

It is ever as simple as...
