I keep on laughing to keep from crying
I keep on trying
Ain't gonna stop
I keep on dreaming to keep from dying
Get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top
We all know someone who's always hurtin'
The sun is shining they draw the curtain

One thing for certain

The pain ain't gonna stop
You get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top
And the world is so much meaner when your heart is hard
You know the grass is always s greener in someone else's yard


I go out walking in any season
It could be rainin' it could be freezin'
I don't need no reason
It's just so pleasing I can't stop

And then you float back on top
You get right down to the bottom of the barrel
You get right down to the bottom of the barrel
And then you float back on top
