Every now and then
I begin again
I push the rock up the mountain
Though I'm learning slow
Now I think I know
How to step aside
When the rock begins to slide

Down, down, down
To the bottom of the valley
Down, down, down
But I know it won't crush me anymore

Every now and then
I think I see a friend
I push the rock up the mountain
Ah, getting close to what I never knew
I just step aside
When the rock begins to slide


Love's not a simple thing
If you're all alone
And finding someone to care
And when you reach him
He's not there
It slides


Here I go again
Faith has time to lend
I push the rock up the mountain
Hope it won't be just
Another joke on me
But I just step aside
If the rock begins to slide

[Chorus x2]
