Lyrics

  • YOU SEEM TO BE LIKE A REAL GOOD IDEA
  • HALF THE TIME, HALF THE TIME
  • YOU LIFTED ME UP TO SOME HIGHER GROUND
  • THEN YOU DROPPED ME DOWN, OW ON THE GROUND
  • BUT I RUE THAT DAY, LIKE I DON’T KNOW HOW
  • YOU PICKED ME UP RIGHT OUT OF THE TIDE
  • MY EYES WEREN'T OPEN WIDE, I WAS BLIND
  • WELL, I SEE MUCH BETTER, MUCH BETTER NOW
  • WELL, I ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES, I SWAY WITH THE CURVES
  • I WALKED ON A TIGHT ROPE, DIDN’T LOSE MY NERVE
  • STAYED OFF THE CANVAS, THEY COULDN’T COUNT ME OUT
  • I NEVER THREW IN THE TOWEL, YEAH, I SAW THE FIGHT OUT
  • AND HOW, ALL FIFTEEN ROUNDS
  • WELL, I ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES, I SWAY WITH THE CURVES
  • I WALKED ON A TIGHT ROPE, DIDN’T LOSE MY NERVE
  • STAYED OFF THE CANVAS, THEY COULDN’T COUNT ME OUT
  • I NEVER THREW IN THE TOWEL, YEAH, I SAW THE FIGHT OUT
  • AND HOW
  • YOU LIFTED ME UP TO SOME HIGHER GROUND
  • THEN YOU DROPPED ME DOWN, OW ON THE GROUND
  • YOU LIFTED ME UP RIGHT OUT OF THE TIDE
  • MY EYES WEREN'T OPEN WIDE, I WAS BLIND
  • WELL, I SEE MUCH BETTER, MUCH BETTER NOW
  • YOU SEEM TO BE LIKE A REAL GOOD IDEA
  • HALF THE TIME, DON’T KNOW WHY
  • WELL, I RUE THAT DAY, LIKE I DON’T KNOW HOW
  • I RUE THAT DAY, AS OF NOW
  • I RUE THAT DAY, LIKE I DON’T KNOW HOW
