Lyrics of Thank You (Not so sad)

My tea's gone cold, I'm wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window And I can't see at all
And even if I could, it'd all be gray But your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad It's not so bad
And even if I could, it'd all be gray But your picture on my wall It's not so bad
And even if I could, it'd all be gray But your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it's not so bad It's not so bad
