Jump Rope

This song is by Blue October and appears on the album Approaching Normal (2009) and on the compilation Bravo Hits 68 (2010).

Remember how you used to say
You couldn't wait till tomorrow for a brand new day?
And no fuss when you had to ride the bus
You just add a little blush
To paralyze your school crush

Now you're older and the weight is on your shoulder
Make the world a little colder
No more hiding in the old day
Be strong
Don't you give up hope
It will get hard
Life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
'Cause it will get hard
Remember life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
It will get hard
'Cause it will get hard

There'll be a bump and there will be a bruise
There'll be alarms and there will be a snooze
There'll be a path that you will have to choose
There'll be a win and there will be a lose and

You gotta hold your head up high and
Watch all the negative go by
Don't ever be ashamed to cry
You go ahead
'Cause life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Remember life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Come on

I want to tell you that everything will be okay
That everything will eventually turn itself to gold
So keep pushing through it all
Don't follow, lead the way
Don't lose yourself or your hope
'Cause life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah

You stomp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise the bottom to the top
And now we're never coming down

Up, down, stomp your feet spin around
Clap hands to the rhythm
Then you slip down

You stomp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise the bottom to the top
And now we're never coming down

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Remember life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Cause it will get hard

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah
Life's like a jump rope

Up, down
Up, down
Up, down
Up, down, yeah

Whoa
'Cause life's like a jump rope
