lyrics

When you’re afraid or angry, hurt or sad
Some say, “Don’t cry, calm down, it’s not so bad”
Away perhaps they send you
The only thing they know to
No thought of the impatience that they had

Sometimes it feels like there’s too much rainfall
We try to force the storm from big to small
And yet whatever we try
The clouds stay up in the sky
They only go away once they’ve rained all

It seems that it’s here to stay
But see what it’s trying to say

Just a feeling, coming from part of you
Just a feeling, take a walk in that shoe
Step right in, but also aside
Close up shot, but also a wide angle view
And you’ll be feeling, you’ve a clue what to do

You’re full of happiness, love, hope and pride
It all seems right, you’re smile’s oh so wide
Everyone says it’s so great
They wish that they had your fate
And even you don’t want to turn that tide

A hot fudge sundae sets your taste aflame
But if it’s all you eat, then you’ll feel lame
Even when we take to it
We still can overdo it
It goes for things like broccoli just the same

It seems that it’s here to stay
But see what it’s trying to say

Just a feeling, coming from part of you
Just a feeling, take a walk in that shoe
Step right in, but also aside
Close up shot, but also a wide angle view
And you’ll be feeling, you’ve a clue what to do

Sometimes we bottle up, sometimes explode
Yet always something new comes down that road
So whether sure or in doubt
With one part in and one out
You just may be surprised where things will flow

Just a feeling, coming from part of you
Just a feeling, take a walk in that shoe
Step right in, but also aside
Close up shot, but also a wide angle view
And you’ll be feeling, you’ve a clue what to do
