The sky was sunny

Behind a simple smile

I thought these days were gone

I can't hang on for you, I probably will

Beside the fire

I said everything I could

should've said it to you, but don't say that 

Just know, I never would

It was gonna be a great day

But you were on my mind

I thought I'd take my chances 

But we never played too much cards

Thought I'd call my shots you like to place bets 

With you I never know

I thought I had it all

But it was too good to be true

The sky seemed way to blue 

It ain't me girl it's got to be you

It was gonna be a great day

But you were on my mind

I heard your footsteps

Traveling up my stairs

But I was alone I was shaking to my bones

And you don't seem to care

I found the bottle 

That you hid from me

I found the letters written long ago

You said that you still love me

Now all I am asking for 

Is a good rest tonight

My eyes are shut, my mind is up

Dreaming about wasting your time

It was gonna be a great day

But you were on my mind

Simple Smile
