Could make me love you less

For a moment like this

Someone’s watching over me

There’s always gonna be another mountain

don’t fret, it’s just a bad day.

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day
