lyrics

sometimes when i open my eyes, half my body’s paralyzed
and the weight of the world clings behind my eyelids, black and white
leave me be, don’t want to fight

sit on up now, give yourself a good slap
find your shoes, sugar, now you’re on the right track
give yourself some space to breathe and then you’ll be
on your feet singin’ “don’t you worry”

sing “i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes!
i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes!”

don’t you know that when you’re feeling low, that you can make it go
far from home and free your soul, just take a walk right down the road
roll along right down the road

walk along here to the beat and feel the street beneath your feet
bring your friends and soon you’ll see what medicine is melody

like these crazy cats, running ‘round in their flats, singing
“life gave me more than i need! it’s a miracle that i should breathe in this world,
it’s the exodus of misery!”

cause i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes
i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes
