  • I've given up again, maybe I'm just tired
    Of thinking that there's one way, only one way out
    I was hoping by now, that maybe I'd have found
    Answers to the questions that are keeping me down

    Even though I'm not over it yet
    I can put forever in the plans that you have
    Stupid and low with the odds that you bet
    I can put forever in the plans that you have

    Take my life and start it somewhere else
    I breathe in the change
    The only way is up again
    Everybody knows that I
    Won't make the same mistakes
    The only way is up again

    I wanna take it back, everything we had
    The curse of love has had me and it turned my heart bad
    With a will there's a way, definite, you say
    I'm looking out to the water, I'm singing my heart out

    Even though I'm not really over it yet
    I can see forever in the plans that you had
    Stupid low with odds that had you bet
    I can see forever in the plans that you had

    I've given up again, maybe I'm just tired
    Of thinking that there was one way, only one way out
    I was hoping by now, that maybe I'd have found
    Answers to the questions that are keeping me down

    Take my life and start it somewhere else
    I breathe in the change
    The only way is up again
    Everybody knows that I
    Won't make the same mistakes
    The only way is up again

    It's time to take it back, everything we had
    The curse of love is healthy if it gives your heart back
    With a will there's a way, to definite, you say
    I'm running out to the water, I'm singing my heart out

    Take my life and start it somewhere else
    I breathe in the change
    The only way is up again
    Everybody knows that I
    Won't make the same mistakes
    The only way is up again

    I've given up again, maybe I'm just tired
    Of thinking that there's one way, only one way out
    I was hoping by now, that maybe I'd have found
    Answers to the questions that are keeping me down
