Lyrics

 

Near the flickering streetlight 
there's a half-open window 
with a girl inside.

She's soooo tired. 
Doing what can't be done 
(seems like) for all her life.

She's soooo tired. 
Doing what can't be done 
(seems like) for all her life. 

Hold your head up high 
Hold your head up high 
Hold your head up high 
And try.

 


He's up at five every morning 
just like when he was working 
Lord, he misses those days 

Takes an orange from the fridge
to his kitchenette table 
and peels the skin away. 

mo ma apt reflections

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hold your head up high 

Hold your head up high 
Hold your head up high 
And try. 

We feel every bump in the road.
We're lugging our heavy loads. 
We're runnin' and jumpin' 
and hoping 
somehow we'll fly ... 

Hold your head up high 
Hold your head up high 
Hold your head up high 
And try.
