Every time I try to seize the day
don't you know it slips right through my hands
And every time I think I've finally found my way
I end up right back where I stand

Sometimes I think somebody upstairs is playing tricks on me
Oh and I gotta ask myself is that the way it must be

Anytime I'm holding three of a kind
somebody else lays down a straight
They say that good things come to those who delay some
but honey, I just can't seem to wait

It's times like these I feel like banging my head against the wall
Oh and I'm gettin' damn, gettin' tired of it all.

Every time I try to seize the day
Every time time I think I've found my way
I really just don't understand
why I'm never dealt a winning hand

Seize the day
Every time I try to seize the day
It always seems to slip away
Every time I try to seize...
seize the... days of... my life
