Everybody knows how's the story about the first one Who tought em how to hurt Let their hopes astray
When it's gone on quite enough And you're sick of staying down I know what you need You gotta live it like it sounds
When you lose what you love, live on live on When the road gets too rough, be strong be strong When you can't understand, but you're starting to see, it'll work in the end You just got to believe, keep on keep on
I had my ideals, my plans were cutting dry I will settle for a thing, yeah You can forget all compromise
But I was tackled like a wave And stomped on like the ground...
