lyrics

Some days everything can seem just fine
Then something comes along that crosses the line
I've been floating on this boat for so long and I still can't see the shore
Not sure I got what it takes to take anymore

So I grab an oar and start to row
I only wish I knew which way to go
To try to find a tiny patch of solid ground
So I can right this ship and turn it around

No I'm Not Gonna, Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down
Not Gonna, Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down

When I get the news it's not what I want to hear
Just want to shut my eyes and cover my ears
Nothing's going as planned I wandered way off track
The waves keep crashing in and the sky's gone black

Nothing's working and I want to restart
I want to scream I want to tear it apart
But you get what you get and there's only one shot
So I gotta go back to the one thing I got

No I'm Not Gonna, Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down
Not Gonna, Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down

Maybe I should just let go
Let go and wash away with the tide
But if I never let 'em win, give in
I know that I'll enjoy the ride

Not Gonna, Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down
Not Gonna, Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down
