one word answer

here’s a letter to the world that always wrote to me
where good men followed dreams into the book of history
i was so naive that i did not believe
just how bad a good man i could be

cause i need a one word answer
an all day sunrise
a clear blue conscience
a perfect getaway
i’m always on the wrong side of yesterday

i could reach the mountaintop and cue the violin
i could turn a promise into a tailspin
i would hardly mind if i could only find
someplace where a loser still could win
