lyrics

Even though life may give you lemons,
Sometimes it's hard to make lemonade.
The good things, they don't last long enough
And the regrettables resist the fade

A kiss of sweetness on my tongue
As the lemons rush to my aid
Too much though, and I'm left burned
Wondering how pain is happiness made

Find the right orchard
And a better tree
Grab too many lemons
And send them to me

Refrain from dissection
Take notes and let it be
Have help with the squeezing
But of help, be free

Add some water to make it last
And let plainness feel a splash
Of the sweetness you've found and live to hold
Let it make you warm when you're feeling cold

MIsfortune usually does not knock
Mistakes recalled solo, though of a flock
The hardest choices are when you have to know
With white on vacation and black a no show

So lemons though,
Those building blocks forgotten
Oh how do we want
A batch that doesn't rotten

Now grab a glass and take a drink
Let each drop taste of an always
When summer lemons give you life
Make their consumption rule all days
