There's a little love left in my heart
And it's lookin' for a place to go
It's a strong love, it's a sole survivor
Of the times I've been laid low
It's been turned down, cheated upon
Made a fool of now and then
But every time a little more loves comes knockin'
It's back up grinnin' again
Back up grinnin' again
Down for the count determined to win
I've seen enough heartache to break a man
But I'm back up grinnin' again
There's a glimmer of hope in your eye
Shinin' through a rainy day
Had a good love go bad on you baby
And it turned your blue eyes gray
Between us both we've cried enough tears
To rain for days on end
But if we get together we could change the weather
And come up grinnin' again
Back up grinnin' again
Down for the count determined to win
I've seen enough heartache to break a man
But I'm back up grinnin' again
There's a little love left in our hearts
And I bet a dollar tonight
A whole lotta happy's gonna come our way
When we turn out the light
We're a strong love, we're soul survivors
And we get it right now and then
So let's make a little more love to be sure
We get back up grinnin' again
