When Life Gets You Down ©

John Bearcat-Redmond
Fife, Scotland
1965

When ever the weather is depressing and the days are as dull as can be
That's just natures way of providing a challenge for you and for me
The darker and cold the day is, and it's perishing cold as I write
The warmer your love for your loved ones and your face uncommonly bright,
No more days of sorry, and no more days of pain
No more looking out the window scowlin' at the rain
No more days of worry struggling nor of strife
No more time being wasted, I'm starting a brand new life
No more nights of crying, no more guilt or shame
No more thinking of the past, and giving myself the blame
