I woke up today with a headache 
More bills to pay than a corporation 
Hey when will it end?
My mirror says I could use a break 
An easy day, some appreciation 
Hey how 'bout a friend?

When days like these start to fall in on me
I gotta face my reflection and say
Hey, hey

Been burned by the fire
Been stuck under water  Strung up on the wire and still the world goes around 

Been tossed like a free throw  Knocked out when the wind blows 
Pull the curtain on the hurtin' 
'cause I'm not going down

I'm not going down

 Inside of me is the only 
 Highway that leads 
To a true freedom 
Holdin' out it's hand. 
(Holdin' out it's hand)
I close my eyes and it's all right 
The sun will shine on a new horizon 
Just around the bend
(Just around the bend)

Days like these bring out the strength in me
So I can face my reflection and say

Hey, hey, hey


I still get 
 Dizzy and frantic  Lonely and paniced 
But next time I won't let it beat me
I can see clearly 
I know who I am
That's how I know I've began
