How’ve you been feeling lately,
You been walking round kind of sedately,
So I’m just gonna tell is straightly and I hope you won’t hate me

I know you’ve been feeling down,
Been carrying your blues around,
So I thought you’d like to hear the sound of a few things I’ve found,

See when I’m in your position,
And I’m looking for a little ignition,
I make a mission with a singular condition to write down all the things I like,
And I’m a musician so I give a rendition and it goes a little bit like this,

Hey why so serious
You’re frowning face is dangerous
I barely recognise you when you smile,
Hey why so serious,
I gotta say it’s mysterious,
‘Cos things been looking up for a little while,

The sun’s been shining, and it’s extraordinary timing,
That I’ve been finding that everything’s aligning,

To looking up, looking on, that negativity is gone,
So go ahead and sing ‘cos baby every little thing is starting to go your way,
Maybe you can start to say,

Have you been feeling brighter
Are you rain clouds looking whiter,
You’re certainly looking lighter from all the problems you shook off,

Tell me what you gonna do next,
What is it that we should expect,
I don’t know where you’re going but I know you’re gonna be on top

Looking on, looking up, looking fine, looking good,
Go ahead and scream feels like I’m living in a dream,
And now everything is going your way,
So maybe you should start to say,


from Apocalypse Diaries, released May 12, 2018
