No, I don't do it for you
and sure as hell not for me
I guess it's true what they say
that this shit isn't free

Trying to get back on your feet
They're just not on the ground
And the frustrating thing is
Your head's not even in the clouds

But that's okay
Because it can't be that long
If it's true what they say
You just gotta be strong

I guess it's true what they say
