been kicked around so long, you’re starting to get used to how it feels
the taste of blood that’s in your mouth
but still somehow it always heals
don’t know how you keep on gettin’ up
from all those ghostly blows
and all the pain that lingers
deep down in the darkness where it grows
i know how hard it is
to keep your head up kid
to keep your head up kid
there you sit on high, all tucked away and locked up in the clouds
waiting for someone to finally come along and take you out
into this bitter world that all so often treated you so cruel
when they turn away you know that they will say that you’re a fool
i know how hard it is
to keep your head up, kid
i know how hard it is
to keep your head up, kid
so patiently you’ve waited
for a love to come along to take you
out into this bitter world so often done you wrong
there you sit alone and there you shed a solitary tear
listening to a song you think that no one else will ever hear
i know how hard it is
to keep your head up, kid
i know hard it is
to keep your head up
keep your head up
keep your head up
keep your head up

    General Commentprobably my favorite song that he's written. so simple but it needs nothing more.

    "don't know how you keep on gettin' up
    from all those ghostly blows
    and all the pain that lingers
    deep down in the darkness where it grows"
