Any Kinda Bright Side

Backstory

There was a woman sitting in the corner at a baby’s first birthday party. She was visibly distraught over something.

Turns out she just broke up with her boyfriend. Breaking up always sucks. But maybe, sometimes, it’s for the better.


Lyrics

This isn’t her first heartbreak 
She whispers to herself 
This may be the last one I can take 

How many times have I been here before 
Is it really too much 
To ask for just a little more 

It starts off so well 
How it is going to end 
There’s just no way to tell 

It starts off so well 
If we can’t see the end 
Maybe it’s just as well 

Maybe it’s for the better 
Maybe 
Maybe it’s for the better 
Maybe 

This isn’t my first rodeo 
He shouted to himself 
As he walked out the door 

How many times have I been here before 
Is it really too much to ask for 
more and more and more and more 
And maybe just a little more 

It starts off so well 
How it’s gonna end 
There’s just no way to tell 

It starts off so well 
And if it’s gotta end 
Maybe it’s just as well 

Maybe it’s for the better 
Maybe 
Maybe it’s for the better 
Maybe 

Not in the mood to try to find 
Any kind of bright side 
It’s a strange comfort to feel like 
I can’t do anything right 

Don’t try to cheer me up 
with some silly notion 
About how maybe it’s for the better 
When I’m feeling such emotions 

It starts off so well 
Is it just an 
Early reservation 
At the local heartbreak hotel 

It starts off so well 
This time I gotta believe 
Things‘ll turn out 
Just as well 

Things are gonna get better 
Maybe 
Maybe 
You‘ll see
