Lyrics

Pick Yourself Up
[William Livesay ©2016]

I was young and restless
I didn’t care for much
Consuming all the vices
I was morally corrupt
I was an adolescent thinker
Half a boy half a man
Life slipping through my fingers
A kid without a plan

I was falling down falling down
I had to learn to pick myself up pick myself up
When you feel your world is broken
And a fix is all but gone
You gotta learn to Pick Yourself Up

I was digging blindly
trying to find my way
When the hole became much deeper
I couldn't see the light of day
From the dumpster by the market
I Consumed the scratch and dent
And shared a little contraband
With the local dispossessed

I was falling down falling down
I had to learn to pick myself up pick myself up
When you feel your world is broken
And a fix is all but gone
You gotta learn to Pick Yourself Up

Disappointment can fester in a cold cold world
Don't let a tear encourage seeds of doubt
Only foolish man will hold the pain of yesterday
That is something we all need to live without

Life is hard no one is spared
It's an endless body count
Everything has reason
despair can bring you down
I found what I was looking for
When I gave it one more turn
Stumbling blocks are stepping stones
Lessons to be learn

I was falling down falling down
I had to learn to pick myself up pick myself up
When you feel your world is broken
And a fix is all but gone
You gotta learn to Pick Yourself Up
