  • I gave up looking for a reason
    To live with things just the way they are
    I came around
    Used to be easy to get to
    And they got to me just about every way

    Caught with no cards up your sleeve
    Not much to choose from
    Grew up all along thinking you couldn't lose
    Don't want to live without that security
    You think with just a little more
    Things will be alright

    Can't stop the world
    Can't stop the world
    Can't stop the world
    Why let it stop you
    Why let it stop you
    Why let it stop you
    Your heart, your will, your car-
    They've all been broken
    You let everybody
    You got beat
    And it's not entertaining
    Watching you try to stand on your feet again

    Can't stop the world
    Can't stop the world
    Can't stop the world
    Don't let it stop you
    Don't let it stop you
    Don't let it stop you Writer/s: Kathy Valentine
