lyrics

Looks like good glory is coming down
To sit at this window, light candles round
Your room cold dark closed, open, open up
To some new arrangement love, lady luck

How do you learn to overcome?
You in the rough or hole in one

Funny how easily we fall off track
Pain in your chest hits and holds you back
You need sunlight to guide your steps over rutted ground
A yellow brick road to carry you uptown

How do learn to overcome?
You in the rough or hole in one

Funny how some things never go your way
You sneak up from behind to surprise the day
Build up, wind back, turn, face left from the other side
Just to plant your poor head in the sand

How do you learn to overcome?
You in the rough or hole in one

When these things all come undone
You in the rough or hole in one
When these things all come undone
How do you learn to overcome?
