I walk alone down this city street
Tears in my eyes that you know aren’t me
No more baby, no more pain
I’m tired of fighting every single day

I’m trying to keep up
But this love has got me down
I’m trying to keep up
But my shoes are losing ground
I’m trying to keep up

I tried to bandage my sorrows in a song
What use is a chorus if you ain’t here to sing along
My life is so empty without your face
Too much to hide, I miss the wonder of your grace

I’m trying to keep up
But this love has got me down
I’m trying to keep up
But my shoes are losing ground
I’m trying to keep up

I’m trying to keep up
But this love has got me down
I’m trying to keep up
But my shoes are losing ground
I’m trying to keep up

It hurts to hear that some one else in your life
Do you think about me when you’re turning out his lights
I lay here in darkness trying not to cry
Cause I know you’re smiling with someone else tonight

I’m trying to keep up
Trying to stay tough now

I’m trying to keep up
Trying to stay tough now

I’m trying to keep up
Trying to stay tough now

    General CommentLove this song, but its kinda sad... I love the expendables and their music as it is generally so upbeat, but when I found the lyrics to this song I was surprised to see its about a break up or something. But I love it!
