Rue The Day Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You seemed to be like a real good idea
At the time, at the time
You lifted me up to some higher ground
Then you knocked me down on the ground
But I rue that day like I don't know how

You picked me up right out of the tide
My eyes weren't open wide, I was blind
But I see much better, much better now

Well, I roll with the punches, I sway with the curves
I walked on a tightrope, didn't lose my nerve
Stayed on the canvas, couldn't count me out
Never threw in the towel, yeah, I saw the fight out and how

All fifty rounds

Well, I roll with the punches, I sway with the curves
I walked on a tightrope, didn't lose my nerve
Stayed on the canvas, couldn't count me out
Never threw in the towel, yeah, I saw the fight out and how

You lifted me up to some higher ground
Then you knocked me down on the ground

You lifted me up right out of the tide
My eyes weren't open wide, I was blind
But I see much better, much better now

You seemed to be like a real good idea
At the time, don't know why
But I rue that day like I don't know how
I rue that day as of now
I rue that day like I don't know how
