They say some days you're gonna win
They say some days you're gonna lose
I tell you I got news for you
You're losin' all the time, you never win, no

If you believe that's how it's gonna be I'd better put you down
Get off your tightrope up there, come down on
The ground you gotta save me now, you better turn around

When I looked around, I was heading down
Won't somebody throw me down a line?

They say some days you gotta give
They say some days you gotta take
If that's the way it's gotta be
Roll it over and you will see

The city streets are full of people going nowhere making time
The change from night to day is really only hours
It's just along the line, can't you see the sign?

When I looked around, I was heading down
Won't somebody throw me down a line?

I want to look you straight in the eye
I want to tell you how I really feel
And I can feel the wheels are turnin' round
Won't somebody throw me down a line?

The city streets are full of people going nowhere making time
The change from night to day is really only hours
It's just along the line, can't you see the sign?

When I closed my eyes, I was so surprised
Somebody had thrown me down the line, stopped me drownin'
Somebody had thrown me down the line
