LENKA- ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES

Roll roll with the punches

Roll roll with the punches

That really hurt me like the fist to the face

I wasn’t ready to be knocked out of a place

Suddenly everything I was sure of

Sinking below the depths of the surface

It’s unexpected, it usually is

When you’re rejected or you take a hit

Suddenly everything’s thrown in a spin

No time to grow a thicker skin

What kind of situation am I in now

When life tries to knock all the wind out of you

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches

If all life offers is black and blue

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches

Little weapon over the phone

They like to threaten the life that I know

They say get over here and get into the ring

But I’m not really much of a fighter

My mechanisms of defense are down

My resistance is out on the town

I was alarmed by your attack

This isn’t a boxing match but I’ll be damned if I ever let you win

When life tries to knock all the wind out of you

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches

If all life offers is black and blue

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches

When all I want is a little stability

Sometime without any bruises

You tell me the things that I don’t want to hear

Putting your fist into my ears

Filling me up with the dread and the fear

Leaving me all in pieces

Suddenly everything’s thrown in a spin

No time to grow a thicker skin

What kind of situation am I in now

When life tries to knock all the wind out of you

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches

If all life offers is black and blue

You’ve got to hold hold hold your head up high

When life tries to knock all the wind out of you

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches

If all life offers is black and blue

You’ve got to roll roll roll with the punches
