I dedicate this song to recession, depression and unemployment. This song's for you.
Today's a new day,but there is no sunshine. Nothing but clouds, and it's dark in my heart and it feels like a cold night. Today's a new day, where are my blue skies, where is the love and the joy that you promised me you tell me it's alright.
(I'll be honest with you) I almost gave up, but a power that I can't explain, fell from heaven like a shower now.
(When I think how much better I'm gonna be when this is over) I smile, even though I hurt see I smile, I know God is working so I smile, Even though I've been here for a while (what you do?) I smile, smile.. it's so hard to look up when you've been down. Sure would hate to see you give up now You look so much better when you smile, so smile."
