... who is having a shitty day.

i was listening to this a few minutes ago and thought of you. blues traveler, just wait, from... er, crap i can't remember what album... wait, it's from Four. get it. bolds are mine.

******

if ever you are feeling like you’re tired
and all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
if you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you
and your appetite for pain has drinken its fill

i ask of you a very simple question
did you think for one minute that you were alone?
and is your suffering a privilege you share only
or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home?

just wait
just wait
just wait
and it will come

if you think i’m giving up on you, you’re crazy
and if you think i don’t love you, well then you’re just wrong
in time you just might take to feeling better
time is the beauty of the road being long

i know that now you feel no consolation
but maybe if i told you and informed you out loud
i say this without fear or hesitation
i can honestly tell you that you make me proud

just wait
just wait
just wait
and it will come

just wait
just wait
just wait
and it will come


if anything i might have said now has helped you
if anything i might have just said helped you just carry on
your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle
and your appetite for pain may all but be gone

i hope for you and cannot stop at hoping
until that smile has once again returned to your face
there’s no such thing as a failure who keeps trying
coasting to the bottom is the only disgrace


just wait
just wait
just wait
and it will come

just wait
just wait
just wait
and it will come

just wait
just wait
just wait
and it will come
