"Big Bad World" as written by Liz Rose, Jamie Lynn Spears and Chris Tompkins....
It's a big bad world
We're doing what we can
Sometimes we fall on our face
Before we even learn to stand
But we get back up
Shake off all the dust
And take it step by step

I can fill the whole floor to the ceiling
With all the dead wrong choices I've made
And even though we try to learn
From each others mistakes

[Chorus]
We'll do it again (doing it again)
We'll do it again my friend (doing it again)
We'll do it again and again
'Till eventually we change
The way its always been

It's a big bad dream
Following your heart
Sometimes the one you
Need's the one that tears you apart
So you say goodbye
Kiss her one more time
And cry the whole way home

I can fill up the driest river
With all the tears falling off of my face
And even though we try to learn
From each others mistakes

[Chorus]
We'll do it again and again
'Till eventually we change
The way its always been

Just running 'round in circles
Tripping over every hurdle
We're just trying to do the best that we can

Well it's a big bad life
All that we can do
Is try to make it right
Tomorrow something new
So if a big rain cloud
Follows you around
Don't let it get you down

[Chorus: x2]

We do it again and again
'Till eventually we change
The way it's always been.

    General CommentI can't belive ths haven't got any comments. This:
    I could fill up the driest river
    With all the tears fallen off of my face
    And even though we try to learn
    From each others' mistakes

    We'll do it again
    Is so me.

    General CommentA typical "Falling is just a way of showing I've climbed which means I can climb again" song. In my "Yes we can survive!" list in iTunes, LOL.
