I was standing down down, downtown
Staring at the puddles on the ground
Tryin' to figure out a way up out of this town
And I know yeah, I'm not the only one
So many people out there chase the sun

If you're looking for a free ride, you better run child
Cause you sure won't get too far, oh
You'd better dance a dance
To make the rain come down
If you want to be a star, oh my life

My Life
(Brother you know)
Sure ain't been too easy
