Madeleine Peyroux - Instead
Instead of feelin' bad, be glad you've got somewhere to go Instead of feelin' sad, be happy you're not all alone Instead of feelin' low, get high on everything that you love Instead of wastin' time, feel good 'bout what you're dreamin' of. Instead of tryin' to win something you never understood Just play the game you know, eventually you'll love her good It's silly to pretend that you have something you don't own Just let her be your woman and you'll be her man: Instead of feelin' broke, buck up and get yourself in the black Instead of losin' hope, touch up the things that feel out of whack Instead of bein' old, be young because you know you are Instead of feelin' cold, let sunshine into your heart. Instead of acting crazy chasin' things that make you mad Keep your heart ahead, it'll lead you back to what you have With every step you're closer to the place you need to be It's up to you to let her love you sweetly: Instead of feelin' bad be glad you've got someone to love Instead of feelin' sad, be happy there's a god above Instead of feelin' low, remember you're never on your own Instead of feelin sad, be happy that she's there at home She's waitin' for you by the phone So be glad that she is all your own! Get happy She's waitin' for you by the telephone. So get back home!
