Still I Resist

This song is by Christopher Cross and appears on the album Doctor Faith (2011).

Daybreak, a lovely morning
A chance for heaven like the dawn of time
But no, when my eyes open
I see a mountain; I see a long uphill climb
And even though I know
It all begins by letting go
Still I resist
Still I resist

Must be crazy, think I'm Joe Frazier
Fighting each moment as if I could win
Big surprise, where does it get me
Same old frustration same old place I've always been
In books of truth I read
What life brings is what I need
Still I resist
Still I resist

Ooh, what I've missed
The wind moves the night air
The leaves fall, they don't care why
I feel that, I get it
So why don't I let it fly, fly

But me, I got opinions
I got to nail it, nail it all down
It's no good; it's like nailing down water
Life is a liquid rolling through town
Through town

I'm just a frightened boy
And when it's time to take my joy
Still I resist
Still I resist

Ooh, what I've missed
The wind moves the night air
The leaves fall, they don't care why
But I care why, I care
I know that, I get it
It's so hard to let it fly
And let it go by

Yeah, me and all those brilliant opinions
Always having to nail it, nail every damn thing down
It's no good; wanna put down this hammer
Love is a liquid and I wanna drown

Oh, please, let me exhale now
And if I fail now at least I'll know I tried
I tried
