"Chin Up, Kid" as written by and David Scott Lucas....
Hey, boy, keep your distance
She don't owe you anything
Ear to the ground and keep on listening
But don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right

She is softly skating
She glides further, far away
To leave you there intently gazing
Until she's out of sight
And she is out of sight

All the time she's wasted being on your side
All the times she's hoped that your hard words were lies
Give up your pride
Your turn to cry

She is microscopic
You are lost inside the lens
She will break you down to nothing
And hope that you survive
Just hope that you survive

All the love for you that's gone unjustified
Think about all the times that your well came up dry
You know she tried
Yeah, recognize

Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right

I hope you don't think you're deserving sympathy
You did it to yourself so get up on your feet
No sympathy
Not even tea

Hey, boy, keep your chin up
There may be hope for you yet
And if someday you're in her graces
Don't you leave her side
And don't you leave her side
Don't ever leave her side
And I won't leave your side

Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right

Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
Don't pretend you're right
