lyrics

If only I could hold my breath longer, I would stay under water

til my troubles were gone

Then I would come up to the surface, take a look at this earth

and realize what went wrong



Wouldn’t it be nice to have something that would give comfort

in the time of your pain

Then you wouldn’t have to rely on someone else’s advice

You could just keep on living in your dream



Oh but it’s not that easy, folks it’s plain to see

that there’s no simple way around

Yes the cards were dealt no matter how you felt about

playin the game

So when the hard times come, you’ve just got to stand strong

Don’t let temptation win your heart

It’s the honest man who’s gonna make a stand no matter what the cost



Imagine if our lives were all perfect, not a single disturbance

or a tragic event

Everything would go real smooth, just like a pleasurable cruise

without a bump or a bend



Sure that would be awfully convenient, but then what is the meaning

for the lives that we spend

We’ve got to persevere through the trials and tear

and find our hope in the end



Because it’s not that easy, folks it’s plain to see

that there’s no simple way around

Yes the cards were dealt no matter how you felt about

playin the game

So when the hard times come, you’ve just got to stand strong

Don’t let temptation win your heart

And that’s what sets the chosen apart



Because it’s not that easy, folks it’s plain to see

that there’s no simple way around

Yes the cards were dealt no matter how you felt about

playin the game
