Jump Rope - Blue October

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

Now your older and the weight is on your shoulder
Make the world a little colder
No more hidin 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
Cuz it will get hard remember life's like a jump rope
Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down
Yeah
It will get hard, cuz it will get hard

There'll be a bump 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 you ever be ashamed to cry
You go ahead
Cuz 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
C'mon!

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

Up down
Up down
Up down
Up down
Yeah

You stomp your feet so hard
You make them pound
Raise your flag up to the time
And now we're never coming down
Up down
Stomp your feet spin around
Clap your hands to the rhythm
And you slip down
Stomp your feet so hard
You make them pound
Raise your flag up to the time
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, cuz 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

Cuz life's like a jump rope...
