Come around cryin' that you just can't win
You thought this one was different' now it's gone again
You just can't believe, baby
Why's it happenin' to me now

You step out on the track in the pouring rain,
And when you get run over will you blame the train?
You just can't deny, baby,
Life is passing you by, baby

And don't you think you've had enough?
Ain't it time to get a different view?
You can't just wait around for what you want
It's all about the way you choose
Ain't nobody else that can make things right
Baby, it's down to you

Everywhere you look they're trying' to do you in
You just can't understand, they used to be your friend
It's always the same, baby
Someone else is to blame, baby

Still ain't got a clue to where it all goes down
'Cause what you're dishing out is coming back around
Same old song, baby
Gone all too long now

Dont'cha think that you've had enough?
Ain't it time to get a different view
You can't just wait around for what you want
It's all about the way you choose
Ain't nobody else that can make things right
Baby, it's down to you
Down to you

Dont'cha think that you've had enough?
Ain't it time to get a different view
Can't just wait around for what you want
It's all about the way you choose
Ain't nobody else that can make things right
Baby, it's down to you
Down to you, honey
