Gonna pick myself up off the ground
When that old feeling comes around again
I’ve had enough of feeling down
There’s something I’ve lost that must be found again

Sometimes it seems like such a hard life
But there’s good times around the bend
There rollercoaster’s got to roll to the bottom
If you want to climb to the top again

Driving down the highway in the rain
Look out of my window and see that southbound train
It’s headlights still shining in my brain
Stayed right alongside me just to ease my pain


Well the snow is gone and the springtime’s here
And the rivers song is buzzing in my ears
Sit and watch the treetops sway
Here comes a breeze to blow my cares away

    General CommentI think this song is saying that life might seem bad, but there is always something to look forward to. To quote a similar idea from a great movie…

    "Sometimes you're flush, sometimes your bust, and when you're up it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on…remember that" -Blow

    General CommentGreat song. This song has singlehandedly gotten me through more than a few rough patches. Great lyrics, and the instrumental breaks are infused with emotion too (love that accordion feature). Plus, its position as album closer on 'Round the Wheel is absolutely perfect. Grand slam.

    General Commentwonderful song indeed! when things seem to fall and crumble, its just a temporary spot in life. everyone hits rock bottom for many reasons, but its life, good times are around the bend! Great version on Trick or Treat Disc 8 [2009]
