Song Meaning
Verse 1
You'll be knocked out, come around
Shot down, shatter on the stony ground
Yeah take it from me, it's how it'll be
Your dreams will come true, fall through
Screw you, batter you to black and blue
Yeah take it from me, it's how it'll be
Verse 2
Love's gonna leave you broken
Time's gonna work you over
You get up, you get up
You keep rolling on
Life's gonna bring you glory
But there's another side to the story
You get up and suck it up
You keep rolling on
Verse 3
But if you crashland in the quicksand
I will pick you up, I'll pull you out
And if the world shakes
Your brittle heart breaks
We will patch it up, we'll work it out
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la
We will patch it up, we'll work it out
Verse 4
You'll be on track, on the rack
Bounce back, wheeling down a bumpy road
Yeah take it from me, it's how it'll be
Through the good times, the sad times
Oh, off you go
But take it from me, whatever you need
Verse 5
Love's gonna leave you broken
Time's gonna work you over
You get up, you get up
You keep rolling on
Life's gonna bring you glory
But there's another side to the story
You get up and suck it up
You keep rolling on
Verse 6
But if you crash land in the quicksand
I will pick you up, I'll pull you out
And if the world shakes
Your brittle heart breaks
We will patch it up, we'll work it out
Verse 7
When your world cracks open
When your heart is broken
We will patch it up, we'll work it out
Life's gonna bring you glory
But there's another side to the story
We will patch you up, we'll work it out
Verse 8
We will patch you up, we'll work it out
Verse 9
And if the world shakes
Your brittle heart breaks
We will patch it up, we'll work it out
I will patch you up, we'll work it out
