Memorial Day Lyrics

by Dropkick Murphys

Youve gotta pick yourself up by the bootstraps
No ones gonna help you out when you fall
Youve gotta find a way out of your problems
When youre broke and youre backed up against the wall
If you sleep on your only chances
Theyll never come around again
So dig deep and swing for the fences
You never know it might work out in the end

Come join the fight
So we can change the way were living
Whats left inside?
If you believe
Believe youll never give in
Come join the fight
Turn away and youll be sure to lose it
Hold onto those dreams
Theyre the one thing they cant take away now

I was young and I wouldnt hear it
You had opinions I had mine too
Just a kid with all the answers
A pompous pride and not one clue
Its getting late now shadows falling
As the sun sets on my time
Theres always something there to remind me
I try to keep up and still fall behind

Come join the fight
So we can change the way were living
Whats left inside?
If you believe
Believe youll never give in
Come join the fight
Turn away and youll be sure to lose it
Hold onto those dreams
Theyre the one thing they cant take away now

Whats left inside?
If you believe
Believe youll never give in

I was young and I wouldnt hear it
You had opinions I had mine too
Just a kid with all the answers
A pompous pride and not one clue

Come join the fight
So we can change the way were living
Whats left inside?
If you believe
Believe youll never give in
Come join the fight
Turn away and youll be sure to lose it
Hold onto those dreams
Theyre the one thing they cant take away now

Come join the fight
