  • It's a big bad world
    We're doing what we can
    Sometimes we fall on our face
    Before we even learn to stand
    But we get back up
    Shake off all the dust
    And take it step by step

    I can fill the whole floor to the ceiling
    With all the dead wrong choices I've made
    And even though we try to learn
    From each others mistakes

    [Chorus]
    We'll do it again (doing it again)
    We'll do it again my friend (doing it again)
    We'll do it again and again
    'Till eventually we change
    The way its always been

    It's a big bad dream
    Following your heart
    Sometimes the one you
    Need's the one that tears you apart
    So you say goodbye
    Kiss her one more time
    And cry the whole way home

    I can fill up the driest river
    With all the tears falling off of my face
    And even though we try to learn
    From each others mistakes

    [Chorus]
    We'll do it again and again
    'Till eventually we change
    The way its always been

    Just running 'round in circles
    Tripping over every hurdle
    We're just trying to do the best that we can

    Well it's a big bad life
    All that we can do
    Is try to make it right
    Tomorrow something new
    So if a big rain cloud
    Follows you around
    Don't let it get you down

    [Chorus: x2]

    We do it again and again
    'Till eventually we change
    The way it's always been. Writer/s: CHRIS TOMPKINS, JAMIE LYNN SPEARS, LIZ ROSE

  • Nicollette from San Fernando, Trinidad And TobagoBIg Disappointment Plain White T's!! This new album is bulls**t.The 1970's sound thing is just not working for people who live in 2008. Get real! Hey there Delilah was your best song so far. I thought you were a puk rock band and how the hell did you get in the entertainment industry? i really don't know.New old music sucks big time!!!!!!!!! Try listening to Flyleaf or GReenday and take an example! Now that's what you call real rock!
