Strawbs – Keep On Trying lyrics

When that ray of sunshine's overdue
You've got to keep on trying
When the thunder rolls though the storm is through
You've got to keep on trying
Lightning never strikes the same place
I've taken many chances in the middle of the ice.

When the dice are down on a losing streak
You've got to keep on trying
When your mind is willing but your heart is weak
You've got to keep on trying
I never had it easy and I never will
The sun is always shining on the far side of the hill.

Oh if you feel like crying
Don't give up
Keep on trying
Swallow your pride
And come back into my life.

When lady luck's got nothing new
You've got to keep on trying
When you're feeling melancholy blue
You've got to keep on trying
I didn't want to be the one to take the blame
I always played to win but it's a solitary game.
