ISN'T IT ALWAYS FOR THE BEST?

Thought I'd give it another try He was my
Catcher in the Rye But the final credit reads the same
One day he's gone like a snuffed out flame

There's a reason for all this
But I don't know what it is
Isn't it always for the best?
Isn't it always for the good?
One of these days
I'll realize that
Doesn't it always work out as it should?

Those secret lovers all around
But never strong enough to settle down
I know they love me, said done true
But they can't love me like I need them to

And there's a reason for all this
But I don't know what it is
Isn't it always for the best?
Isn't it always for the good?
One of these days I'll realize that
Doesn't it always work out as it should?

Each time I'm broken up
And I think I've finally had enough
Every time I can't carry on
I know it's always darkest before the dawn

Every step forward is a mile behind
And someone's loss is another's find
I keep rolling and rambling along
Taking up solace in my wine and song

Cause, there's a reason for all this
But I don't know what it is
Isn't it always for the best?
Isn't it always for the good?
One of these days I'll realize that
Doesn't it always work out as it should?
