Nobody writes a sad song
When they're happy and quite content
Nobody buys an ice cream cone
With a pocket full of lint

Nobody wakes up happy
When you've tossed and turned all night
Nobody jumps for joy
When there's sadness you have to write

Nobody believes in miracles anymore
Or...maybe so it seems
Nobody cares if you never obtained
Some of your biggest dreams

Nobody takes note
when it's sadness that you wrote
