​The Comeback Trail

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Journeys (1978).

No one ever said it was easy street
And no one ever said it was meant to be
And no one ever said if I made it one time
The rest of my life would be rosy The higher it is you climb somewhere
The quicker it is to come down
Seems you never notice you've got somewhere
Until you're right back there
Right back there where you started

The money comes like pouring rain
And the good times seem to find it
When a million people know your name
It's so easy to ride behind it
Hours go like minutes in the day
And the years go somewhere
Before you know it's all slipping away You can be right back there
Right back there where you started

But now I'm on the comeback trail
Got a chance to fail
Got a chance to make it
I'll let the worst prevail
Could be a sorry tale
But I'll take it
When you reach the bottom
I guess you know There's only one way left to go
There's no use waiting and hesitating
Thinking that the world might follow
Set your sights on those shimmering heights
And set your mind on tomorrow

Yes no one ever said it was a one way street
And no one ever said it was meant to be
And no one ever said if I came down one time
I'd have to accept it was the end of me
The higher it is you get somewhere
The harder it is when you're down
Seems you really notice you've been somewhere When you're right back there
Right back there where you started
