Things Are Looking Up Around Here

Copyright 2011 Will Boyd

I wrote this song this week for a song contest. The only rule of the contest is that you have to use the words "things are looking up" in the song.

VERSE 1:
My truck broke down yesterday
Don't even have enough money to tow it away
And I've been looking for work now
For almost eight weeks

The school called me about my kid
They want me to come in because of something he did
It means I'll have to see my ex
And we don't speak

Sometimes it feels like the whole world's ganging up on me
But I know that silver linings be a little hard to see

CHORUS:
Things are looking up around here
I got a feeling it's gonna be a damn good year
I'm working on something big, just wait and see
Things are looking up around here
I'm seeing the world crystal clear
It's been six years now since I had my last drink
Well I'm done with the running, I'm done with the fear
Things are sure looking up around here

VERSE 2:
I try to make a meeting every day
And if I get a little wisdom I give it away
I always want to be
Of service to my fellow man

I'll tell you like it was told to me
An attitude of gratitude is the key
And be sure to pass on
Some hope whenever you can

I know it may sound to simple but one day at a time
Is the only way I've ever found to truly live this life

CHORUS:
Things are looking up around here
I got a feeling it's gonna be a damn good year
I'm working on something big, just wait and see
Things are looking up around here
I'm seeing the world crystal clear
It's been six years now since I had my last drink
Well I'm done with the running, I'm done with the fear
Things are sure looking up around here

BRIDGE:
When I heard that stranger say those words
Something clicked in me
And I knew that there was hope for me to change
So the next time that it came around
To my turn to speak
I finally did more than just say my name


CHORUS:
I said things are looking up around here
I got a feeling it's gonna be a damn good year
I'm working on something big, I'm working on me
Things are looking up around here
I want to see the world crystal clear
It's been one day since I had my last drink
Well I'm done with the running, I'm done with the fear
Things are sure looking up around here
