The same old story, the same old song
The same old sad refrain
Just when I thought things were going well
I was pushed right back down again
Won't someone hear me
Won't someone help me
Can't someone turn my luck around

How I wish that something good would happen
That just for once the sun shone through
How I wish that something good would happen
Anything but these old clouds would do

I dare not think about all the time
I've spent struggling up this hill
For each step up I take two steps back
And it seems I always will.
Won't someone hear me
Won't someone help me
Can't someone turn my luck around

How I wish...

And so if you don't see me, it's not that I'm not there
It's just that no one listens, and no one seems to care
I'd trade my life for a good review
Anything but these old clouds would do

How I wish...
