Lifting Doldrums


You can't go on doin' nothin' wrong

and hope it makes it all alright.

You must be strong, and keep on trudging on

cuz sitting still is still no life.

Get up off your chair and take a breath of air.

Then you can start to be alive.


Lifting doldrums that seem to weigh a ton

is not a solo means to ends.

Lifting doldrums that rains on everyone

is easier with help from friends.


When things seem bleak, you're on a losing streak,

and nothin' ever seems to change,

just give a yelp and ask for someone's help

and suddenly your goal's in range.

You need all your strength to reach the final length.

Regain your grip on life's loose reigns.
