Some Days are Better Than Others by U2

Some days are dry, some days are leaky
Some days come clean, other days are sneaky
Some days take less, but most days take more
Some slip through your fingers and onto the floor

Some days you're quick, but most days you're speedy
Some days you use more force than is necessary
Some days just drop in on us
Some days are better than others

Some days it all adds up
And what you got is not enough
Some days are better than others

Some days are slippy, other days sloppy
Some days you can't stand the sight of a puppy
Your skin is white but you think you're a brother
Some days are better than others

Some days you wake up with her complaining
Some sunny days you wish it was raining
Some days are sulky, some days have a grin
And some days have bouncers and won't let you in

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

Some days are honest, some days are not
Some days you're thankful for what you've got
Some days you wake up in the army
And some days it's the enemy

Some days are work, most days you're lazy
Some days you feel like a bit of a baby
Lookin' for Jesus and His mother
Some days are better than others

Some days you feel ahead
You're making sense of what she said
Some days are better than others

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

I kept waiting for some sort of pint. This is just a fancy way of saying every day is different. And we all go through good shit and bad shit. Don't get me wrong I found it interesting to read but what's the point of recording a song like this?

This song is maybe written by the u2 when they were just starting out. Seems like the scribblings of a young man

Well I see your point but as I have said many times before with a good song and lyric the two can not really be separated.

As for it being simple. It doesn't need to be complicated to have meaning. It says what it says. Some days are better than others.
