And it starts just like the last one
Something's very strange
Somewhere during giving up
Our heads fell into place
Can't say we never tried to make it out
Can't say we never tried
To shake off all our doubt but

We can ride it out, we can ride it out
If it's not your reputation
Then it's just not worth the patience

Now we weren't born right on the ropes
We had to tie our own knot
That's just the way it works
And we can say we're better off
Can't say we never took our own advice
Can't say we never had to pay the hardest price, no

We can ride it out, we can ride it out
If it's not your reputation
Then it's just not worth the patience, baby
We can ride it out, we can ride it out
If it's not your reputation
Then it's just not worth the patience, baby

    General Commentdoes anyone have an idea as to what this song means?

    it's pretty general & i'm wondering about specifics.
    "if it's not your reputation, then it's just not worth the patience"
    that line in specific.

    General CommentLove this song. Really smoky and melancholy.
    That line sounds like he's saying
    "If its more than me being burden, let's give this up. Its not work it,"
    or something of that sort.
