I was your regular "optimist."
Life is  sunshine and rainbows
and glasses half full.
But something happened; a gradual change.
I was snared in a net
Of everything life has thatís dull.

I  was your regular "happy-go-lucky."
"Things'll get better,
just you wait and see."
But I was snatched up in a hurricane
by the ways of the world;
an endless, grey monotony.

I'm your regular "always smiling,
little ditz." FOOLED YOU, TOO!
I was caught the whole time.
But I was too stubborn to admit to you.
I think it was my fault;
the stupid error of my pride.

I was your regular "naÔve; blind."
Who didn't know what
this world would bring.
Who didn't know love, who didn't know life.
The world was my canvas,
my melodic music to sing.

I was your regular "everything's good."
Then you came along
and I fell in love.
You loved me too; I was under you spell.
Then you disappeared
And with your void, so did my sun.

I was your regular ďoptimist.Ē
NaÔve, untainted
Free from lifeís debris.
But then I was caught in pessimismís web.
My sun died and now
Blackís the only color I see.

I was you regular "optimist."
Guess that ship has sailed...
