"You Knock Me Out" as written by and Kevin Patrick Devine....
The lights drop
The film starts
And I can't stop grinnin'
like a punchdrunk moron on a truck driving northbound to take his girl pumpkin picking
Cuz she's in love with October
And it's got me looking at it differently
and if you knew how I'd gotten used to things then you'd know that's fine with me.

Because I'm cynical so often
it's nice to have something to be naive about.
But when they laugh, so sure and caustic
It used to knock me out
but I can't even hear 'em now.

Two pictures, two days, and what changed, what changed?
It's all of the difference that cutting you out and owning up could make
Cuz girl, you were a cancer and I've carved you out
and I never feel so sick now.

Because I'm cynical so often
it's nice to have something to be naive about.
So let them laugh, so sure and caustic
It used to cut me up
but I can't even hear 'em now.

You knock me out
You knock me out

You knock me out
You knock me out
Yeah, you knock me out

I said, "I know how things can crumble
and I know how things can drown
but how long will it take me to turn my life around?"

I used to sing, "I know how things can crumble
and I know how people drown
but how long will it take me to turn my life around?"

But now i sing, "I know how people crumble
and I've seen how people drown
I've got so close but I'm starting
to turn my life around, around, around"
