Possibility Days

Counting Crows

It was a cold 3 A.M. at JFK
I guess you stayed cause you wanted to stay
And we went from zero to everything all in a day
And then Kennedy took you away

I thought of a short road that was keeping you warm
And the moments that make up your life till you wake up
You sit on a swing and you talk with the girl
She tells you she wanted to kiss you

And you know the worst part of a good day
Is hearing yourself say
Goodbye to one more possibility day
Goes on and on

I go west but your weather has changed
You're just scared I mistake it for strange
When you want me to leave then
You start to believe I should stay
I gotta get out of L.A.

It seems like the short days are over
'Cause you just don’t sleep in the daylight
So I don’t sit up nights
I lie on my back on top of the hill and your body
Is breaking the sky 'cause you're shaking

And the worst part of a good day
Is knowing it's slipping away
That's one more possibility day
It's gone

We were waiting for winter this year
But you came and it never appeared
Me and you we know too many reasons
For people and seasons
That pass like they weren’t even here

Now living in smiles is better you say
We carry the burdens of all of our days
Just scared that you’ll leave
You’re scared that I'll stay
It's an impossibility day
And we only saw half of the ballet

I said good night, goodbye
Seems like a good thing
So you know it's a good lie
You can run out of choices
And still hear a voice in your head
When you’re lying in bed

And it says that the best part of a bad day
Is knowing it's ok
The color of everything changes
The sky rearranges its shade
And the smile doesn’t fade
Into the phone call
And one bad decision we made

And the worst part of a good day
Is the one thing you don’t say
And you don’t know how but you
Wish there was some way

You pull down the shades
And you shut out the light
Because somehow we mixed up
Goodbye and good night

And you one thing you won’t say
Is everyone knows possibility days
Are impossible
It just feels wrong, so wrong
Still you’re gone, long gone
