Lyrics – I Keep Going

I Keep Going

Words: Terry Varney / music: Kate MacColl and Steve Mitchell © 1991

Getting restless, knocked out and bored, working for a living and living by the sword
Five in the morning rolls around too soon and when my workday is done I’ll be staring at the moon

Can’t get enough out of my social life, sixteen hour days, all that stress and strife
All the time banging in my head so loud, sometimes I wish I was sitting on a cloud

BUT I KEEP GOING, GOING ON AND ON AND ON, YEAH
MY LIFE’S FLOWING LIKE A CREEK INTO A POND
I KEEP GOING, ‘CAUSE LIFE’S TOO IMPORTANT TO ME, YEAH
LIFE’S TOO IMPORTANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY

Always got a grip on what’s happening, hey, see something I like and I ask him to stay
Hang for a good time, maybe some time to come but I refuse to be held under any man’s thumb

My way’s mine, hey, it’s what I choose, ain’t got nothing, ain’t got nothing to lose
Don’t seem like much but that’s what I am, I’m looking for a footloose, free kinda spirited man

CHORUS

But I keep going, going on and on and on, yeah
My life’s flowing like a creek into a pond
I keep going, ‘cause life’s too important to me, yeah
Life’s too important to be taken seriously

CHORUS
