lyrics

It's been too long with my head hung down,
or since I've felt at all like myself
But I just can't seem to get over things,
or figure out what's bringing me down

But it's not too late
I have to wait, and keep trying

I'm tired of being tired
And I'm tired of myself,
tired of needing help,
But I've decided I'll keep trying,
and with the love I have,
I'll dig myself out of this hole

Was losing hope, I was falling down,
but a stranger's kindness picked me up
Sometimes that's all it takes to know
that there's hope and things can turn around
and that it's not too late.
