Got hit pretty hard
Down for the count
Laid out flat

Couldn’t even come in
Had to call out
But now I’m back

And by the smile on my face you can tell
I’m right back in the race you can tell
You can tell there’s not even a trace
Of the dark place where I fell

And it was so easy
I figured it out
I’m pretendin I’m well

Somethin goin around
Knockin everyone down
And I caught it

Laid out for days
Wouldn’t go away
No matter how hard I fought it

Cuz for this disease only one thing will do
It’s in my heart and my heart wants you
So where are you baby

Now I’m movin on
The past is behind me
It’s a brave new world

And I won’t be held down
I’m gonna be free
Forget about that girl

And by the spring in my step you can tell
By my positive pep you can tell
You can tell now to life I say “yep”
I’m escaping the grip of this personal hell

And it was so easy
I figured it out
I’m pretendin I’m well
