Lyrics

Everyday you must say:
 "So how do I feel about my life?"
Anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
When will you accept yourself?

"I am sick and I am dull and I am plain
 How dearly I'd love to get carried away
 Oh, but dreams have a knack of just not coming true
 And time is against me now
 Oh, who and what to blame?"

Oh, anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
When will you accept yourself?
For Heaven's sake

Anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
Everyday you must say:
 "Oh, how do I feel about the past?"
  Others conquered love but I ran
  I sat in my room and I drew up a plan
  Oh, but plans can fall through and so often they do
  And time is against me now
  And there's no one left to blame"

Oh, tell me when will you
When will you accept your life
The one you hate?

For anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
Everyday you must say:
 "Oh, how do I feel about my shoes
  They make me awkward and plain
  How dearly I would love to kick with the fray
  But I once had a dream and it never came true
  And time is against me now
  Time is against me now"
And there's no one but yourself to blame

Oh, anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
Anything is hard to find
For Heaven's sake

Anything is hard to find
When you WILL NOT open your eyes
When will you accept yourself?

When?
When?
When?
When?
