Handwritten Lyrics

Monday morning
Eighteen years of dawning
I say how long
Say how long

It was one dull morning
Woke the world with bawling
I was so sad
They were so glad

I had a feeling
It was out of control
I was of the opinion
It was out of control

Boys and girls
Go to school, and girls
They make children
Not like this one

I had the feeling
It was out of control
I was of the opinion
It was out of control

I had the feeling
It was out of control
I was of the opinion
It was out of control

Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control

I fought fate
There's blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It's in his childhood

One day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late
Too late
You can't fight fate

I had the feeling
It was out of control
I was of the opinion
It was out of control

Goodbye
