Press On

When your eyes are filled with tears
And you're facing the night of your darkest fears
When you've lost the love of your dearest dears
When the mean old world looks on and jeers
When you got the evil eye from a jury of your peers
Press on, press on, press on

When every eye that rests on you is filled with lust
And your masterpiece has just been smashed to dust
When you thought it was blessed but it turned out cussed
When you thought it was gold but it turned out rust
Press on, press on, press on

So when you meet that devil in the boxing ring
Take a deep breath when the bell goes ring
Give him a left and give him a right
But don’t you dare, give up the fight

So when the weight of this old world has got you draggin' down
And every door slams shut when they see your face comin' round
When you were trying to be cool they simply thought you were a clown
You were looking for a hat but you got a thorny crown
Press on, press on, press on

So when you make the long trip to the end of your rope
Baby, don’t let go 'cause it’s a slippery slope
And one thing is for sure, it does no good to mope
So in this dirty world come on and grab a bar of soap
If your heart is sayin' "yes" but the whole world says "nope"
You got to dig so deep and keep your holy hope

And then get back on the bus
And press on, press on, press on
