TOTAL LENGTH 4:23

i been so low
felt the wind blow
like i was a screen door
in a thunderstorm

yeah i've been down
i've been laid out
but you always were
what I came here for

waiting all day
waiting all day
just for my say
for a bell to ring
for the first sting

Yeah I been blue
that ain’t nothing new
it’s you my friend
you’re why I get up again

I’ve make mistakes
I’ve been hard hit
I say so what
so what if I did
I’m the clear eyed
I’m the
comeback kid
start it over
start it over again
I'm the clear eyed
I'm the comeback kid

it’s been a rough year
been some tough tears
I’ve lost so fast
all that I had

but when it’s time to
i will fight for you
cause you know you are are
why i’ve come so far

I’ve make mistakes
I’ve been hard hit
I say so what
so what if I did
I’m the clear eyed
I’m the
comeback kid
start it over
start it over again
I'm the clear eyed
I'm the comeback kid
