Lyrics
I should have known that you’d bid me farewell
And there’s a lesson to be learned from this and I’ve learned it very well.
Now I know you’re not the only starfish in the sea.
If I never hear your name again it’s all the same to me.

And I think it’s gonna be all right, yes the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

You never cared for secrets I’d confide
For you I’m just an ornament, something for your pride.
Always running, never caring, that’s the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all you had to give

And I think it’s gonna be all right, yes the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

And I think it’s gonna be all right, yes the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball

The story’s in the past with nothing to recall
I’ve got my life to live and I don’t need you at all
The roller coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my ticket with my tears, that’s all I’m goning spend.

And I think it’s gonna be all right, yes the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball
And I think it’s gonna be all right, yes the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball
