Lyrics Alec Benjamin - I'm Not A Cynic

"I'm Not A Cynic"

I’m just being realistic 
Being honest with myself 
I’ve tried being optimistic 
But it doesn’t seem help 
So I’ll just have to admit 
This is the hand that 
I’ve been dealt 
Im not being pessimistic 
Just being honest with myself 

I’m not a cynic 
But today’s just not my day 
I’ve tried to spin it 
Bout a thousand ways 
But from every angle oh 
The outlook is the same 
I swear I’m not a cynic 
My glass just has no water in it 
Today 

You only get that which 
Your given 
It’s not always up to you  
Not every Sunday is a picnic
Cause the sky ain’t always blue 
no you can’t just change the weather 
By changing your point of view 
Some days you just have to wait 
Until the storm just passes through 

I’m not a cynic 
But today’s just not my day 
I’ve tried to spin it 
Bout a thousand ways 
But from every angle oh
The outlook is the same 
I swear I’m not a cynic 
My glass just has no water in it 
Today 

So like a boat on the ocean 
I’ll rock with the waves god I’m so sick of this notion that I have to fake
Fake my emotion and pretend I’m okay 
So like a boat on the ocean 
I’ll just rock w the waves
