Roll With The Punches
oleh: Lenka



Roll, roll with the punchesRoll, roll with the punches
That really hurt meLike a fist to the faceI wasn't readyTo be knocked out of placeSuddenly everything I was sure ofSinking below the depths of the surfaceIt's unexpected, it usually isWhen you're rejectedOr you take a hitSuddenly everything's thrown in a spinNo time to grow a thicker skinWhat kind of situation am I in now?
[Chorus]When life tries to knock all the wind out of youYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punchesIf all life offers is black and blueYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
Little weapons over the phoneThey like to threaten the life that I knowThey say get over here and get into the ringBut I'm not really much a fighterMy mechanisms of defense are downMy resistance is out on the townI was alarmed by your attackThis isn't a boxing matchBut I'll be damned if I ever let you win
[Chorus]When life tries to knock all the wind out of youYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punchesIf all life offers is black and blueYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
When all I want is a little stabilitySome time without any bruisesYou go and tell me the things that I don't want to hearPutting your fist into my earsFilling me up with the dread and the fear leaving you all in piecesSuddenly everything's thrown in a spinNo time to grow a thicker skinWhat kind of situation am I in now?
[Chorus]When life tries to knock all the wind out of youYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punchesIf all life offers is black and blueYou've got to hold, hold, hold your head up highWhen life tries to knock all the wind out of youYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punchesIf all life offers is black and blueYou've got to roll, roll, roll with the punches
