lyrics

Amethyst Jane fell out of bed
A thousand thoughts filled up her head
Then she took a look at the world and smiled

And she was young
And she was happy
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day is gonna come

Amethyst Jane got into the fray
Took a deep breath, and looked at the day
Then she took a turn on a bumpy ride

And she was long
And she was sexy
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day is gonna come

Amethyst Jane got out of the fray
Spun around blind, and had to say
Please don't make me look at myself inside

And she was wrong
And she was angry
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day has gotta come

And she said
Up or down, it's all the same
See the sunshine and the rain
Come or go, it's all the same
Feel the laughter and the pain
Win or lose, it's all the same

Amethyst Jane got out of bed
A thousand dreams filled up her head
Then she took a look at herself and smiled

And she was strong
And she was happy
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day has finally come

Up or down, it's all the same
See the sunshine and the rain
Come or go, it's all the same
Feel the laughter and the pain
Win or lose, it's all the same
