Yesterday, it rained so hard I thought the roof was gonna give But now today's so bright, just want to let it all in And I did it on my own and I know who my real friends were But there's no one to blame when it's all a game You know what the rules are From here on out it's this side up! It's shuffled steps and shuffled decks and how they both fall For me a taste at first and then always the pain that sooths And it hit me and hit me and hit me, I never even cared at all For what's not remembered, though others did see There was no memory for me From here on out it's this side up! (2x) From here on out it's this side up! (4x) Yeah, oh boy, it feels like I got a new lease on life I've opened a door as I opened my eyes, pulled out that knife And it's so different here, my head is clear and in a new frame But I can't forget my regrets, though there is no shame For others it's simply not the same From here on out it's this side up! (2x) This side up!
