    I Keep On Keepin' On

    Hey let's face it, life can be tough as anything some days. I get knocked down, sometimes I fall, other times I feel like life is pushing my face in the dirt, but I get up every morning and do it all again and would not miss a day of this for anything!

    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    Whenever I fall down I manage to pick myself up no matter how hard it is, no matte how much it hurts, no matter how much I just want to lie there and die I make myself get up and get on with things. Hopefully this is the last time I will have to do this.
