There was a time 
I lived as if
there would never be a tomorrow
There was a time 
I lived as if
I owed it all to yesterdays' sorrow

    inside my mind
    it could be rainin'
    but on my face
    the sun would shine

There was a time
that I was living
out on the streets for a while
When I was begging    
for a smoke
for some attention and for your smile

    inside my mind
    it could be rainin'
    but on my face
    the sun would shine

repeat chorus

There was a time 
that I was rich
and that I bought the dreams I had
All on the spur 
of any moment
ever so happy however sad

    inside my mind
    it could be rainin'
    but on my face
    the sun would shine

There was a time 
I didn't trust
myself at all (on my face the sun would shine)
and so I followed 
any direction
just like that out of the blue

    inside my mind
    it could be rainin'
    but on my face
    the sun would shine

There was a time 
that I decided
to wish I'd never been born at all
but kept on going 
for I was lucky
I heard a last minute call

and now today 
There is no change
just my perception of what I feel

and yet it's strange 
I can't explain it
I'm really happy my life's for real

and inside my mind
it could be rainin'
but on my face
the sun would shine (shine)
