Some people always lookin’ for some trouble
Some people always want to run and hide.
Some people always frettin’ ’bout tomorrow
Some people always coverin’ their backside
But they’s all got themselves created
They’s all got themselves loved
By the only one who is the only one
Deep enough to stand on either side.
And a great big, wrap-around,
Everlivin’, Everlovin’, Everlastin’ hug.
Some people never seem to get excited
Some people can’t never seem to cry,
Some people seem bored to death of pluggin
Some people are all boarded up inside.
Some people seem to know the depth sorrow,
Some people seem to think about the other guy
Some people seem caught up in some hope
Some people still seem to laugh after they cry.
