lyrics

Never say never
But never say always
Sometimes can be good for you

Try to be kinder
to people who bore you
You’re probably boring them too

Never say one thing
And wish for another
For which of the two will come true?
If you can love it
then it will most likely love you

Never say never
And don’t be so clever
It’s lonely to win every fight

Never say something you
Wouldn’t like hearing
If you can’t be nice, be polite

Like you do one thing
is how you do everything
But you can’t do everything right…
All of the time… All of the time…

And try to be true, try to be fair
Don’t play so much with your hair
Don’t pick but strum
Make room, it’ll come
And take better care
Don’t be so late,
Don’t make people wait
Don’t act like you’re so fucking great
Don’t over prepare
And take better care
Care of yourself… Care of yourself…

Water the flowers
Don’t pee in the shower
And books aren’t your friends,
they’re just art

Don’t say you hate it
You don’t need to love it
There are so many shades to your heart

Be a good lover
The thing you’ll discover
You’re more than the sum of your parts
(Don’t think you know how it ends,
’Cause you know how it starts)

And try to be true, try to be fair
Don’t play so much with your hair
Don’t pick but strum
Make room, it’ll come
And take better care
Don’t be so late,
Don’t make people wait
Don’t act like you’re so fucking great
Don’t over prepare
And take better care
Care of yourself… Care of yourself…
