[Verse 1]

         A#m7
I'm just being realistic, being honest with myself
F#
I've tried being optimistic but it doesn't seem to help
D#m
So I'll just have to admit this is the hand that I've been dealt
F# F7
I'm not being pessimistic, just being honest with myself

[Chorus]

A#m7
I'm not a cynic, oh, today's just not my day
F#
I've tried to spin it 'bout a thousand different ways
D#m
But from every angle oh, the outlook is the same
F# F
I swear that I'm not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it today

A#m F# D#m

F# F
I swear that I'm not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it

[Verse 2]

         A#m
You only get that what you're given, it's not always up to you
F#
Not every Sunday is a picnic, 'cause the sky ain't always blue
D#m
You can't just change the weather by changing your point of view
F# F
Some days you have to wait until the storms have passed through

[Chorus]

A#m
I'm not a cynic, oh, today's just not my day
F#
I've tried to spin it 'bout a thousand different ways
D#m
But from every angle oh, the outlook is the same
F# F
I swear that I'm not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it today
A#m F# D#m
Uh, uh, uh
F# F7
I swear that I'm not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it

[Verse 3]

                        A#m
So like a boat on the ocean, I'll rock with the waves
F#
God, I'm so sick of this notion that I have to fake
D#m
Fake my emotion and pretend I'm okay
F# F
So like a boat on the ocean, I'll just rock with the waves

[Chorus]

A#m
I'm not a cynic, oh, today's just not my day
F#
I've tried to spin it 'bout a thousand different ways
D#m
But from every angle oh, the outlook is the same
F# F
I swear that I'm not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it today
A#m7 F# D#m
Uh, uh, uh
F# F7
I swear that I'm not a cynic, my glass just has no water in it
