laughing all the way down

Another evening wasted in the wondering
Why time is never on my side
Stillborn thoughts crumpled on the floor,
Words that never seem to rhyme
Watching you play the martyr with your paper crown
Knowing you'll never be satisfied

Just push me harder, knock me over, watch me fall
I'll be laughing
Laughing all the way down

Another moment hung on the edge of a blade
When fate refuses to take my side
You think the joke's at my expense,
So sure you're never wrong
Such a sad, perfect angel with those cardboard wings
Until the power to your halo died

So push me harder, knock me over, watch me fall
Wonder why I'm laughing
Laughing all the way down

I'll be laughing as I'm falling
Burning through the atmosphere
Because these days I know you
Can't take what you haven't given
Can't destroy what you've never owned
You're such a clown, tears painted on
Don't know a smile's more than the other side of a frown
That's why I'm laughing
Laughing all the way down

So try and push me harder, knock me over, make me fall
I'll be laughing
Laughing cause I won't stay down
