Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I, I always believed in futures

I hope for better in November

I try the same losing lucky numbers

It could be a cold night for a lifetime

[Pre-Chorus]

Hey now, you can't keeping saying endlessly

My darling, how long until this affects me?

[Chorus]

Say hello to good times

(Say hello)

Trade up for the fast ride

(We close our eyes)

We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

[Verse 2]

I, I always could count on futures

That things would look up, and they look up

Why is it so hard to find a balance between living decent and the cold and real?

[Pre-Chorus]

Hey now, what is it you think you see?

My darling, now's the time to disagree

[Chorus]

Say hello to good times

(Say hello)

Trade up for the fast ride

(We close our eyes)

We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

[Bridge]

Hey now, the past is told by those who win

My darling, what matters is what hasn't been

Hey now, we're wide awake and we're thinking

My darling, believe your voice can mean something

[Chorus]

Say hello to good times

(Say hello)

Trade up for the fast ride

(We close our eyes)

We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely
