Ev'ry time we say goodbye
False or true, I wish I had a clue or two
Where I stood I thought I knew
True or false, life wasn't ever any waltz
Then it caught the somersaults
Might have known it would
Ev'ry Time my heart begins to dance
The world steps on my little toes.
Ev'ry time I take a little chance
I pay right through my little nose.
Ev'ry time I fly my little kite
It catches on a tree.
Ev'ry time I throw an anchor out
It pulls me in the sea.
Ev'ry time I feel a little glow
I always get a little shock.
Ev'ry time I stick my little chin out
I always get a little knock,
And when I aim my arrows at the sun
They always miss their mark
Leaving just a lonely little lady
In the dark
