You knock me down take the shirt from our backs,
Kick me round but you will never stop me,
Drag me down take the words from my mouth,
Kick me round round but you will never stop me.

He said no man could ask for better sons
And after all the things I’ve said and done.
He said he carries us both deep within his heart.

What if my kind afraid to try?

You knock me down take the shirt from our backs,
Kick me round but you will never stop me,
Drag me down take the words from my mouth,
Kick me round round but you will never stop me.

And it’s the selling of the setting sun
That let’s me know our work has just begun.
You know we’ll never erase it it’s gone too far.

What if my kind afraid to try?

You knock me down take the shirt from our backs,
Kick me round but you will never stop me,
Drag me down take the words from my mouth,
Kick me round round but you will never stop me.

    General CommentThe chorus is abviously about JS and Marks dad, apparently he sent JS an e-mail just saying how proud he was of both his sons regardless of what they have done and achieved. the line where he sings "He said he carries us both deep within his heart." sound as if he's talking directly to Mark [his brother and bass player]. Also he nearly died that year possibly form a heart condidtion and still loves both his sons.
