Running over all the barriers I set to keep an even keel to the pressure
Flooding over into basements getting wet inside, wet inside
And I fall, I've fallen in trouble with all my plans and good intentions
Is there a momentary letup? I can't breathe or keep an even keel to the weather
"Sir, we can't sustain another hit like that - it's devastating"

But every winter melts into a spring
And every break would mend if you'd just use the proper sling

I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing

I've got a lot of little oceans I can't swim or seem to pull ahead in the desert
And this might take some time when I can't fit me
Into the puzzle when it's all green and I'm so yellow
Is there a momentary letup here? I can't go on, can't push on
I wouldn't mention it except I think I'm lost
Been lost so long

But every winter melts into a spring
And every break would mend if you'd just use the proper sling

I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing

I tried to do the right thing

Ba da da da bum bum
Ba da da da bum bum bum
Bum bum bum
Bum bum bum

Everyone gets knocked down
Keep calm and carry on
If you don't learn to endure heavy things
How can you ever hope to get strong?

Like every winter melts into a spring
And I can only keep on trying until these lungs won't sing

I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing
I tried to do the right thing

Storm clouds are coming, raindrops are falling
Come inside, run inside
