I Can't Keep On Keepin' Up
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Ruby lips, hair of gold
And a heart that's, oh, so cold
I never know just where your love is bound
One day it's mine pure and true
The next it's gone without a clue
And I can't keep on keepin' up just to be let down

CHORUS
I can't keep on keepin' up
I can't keep drinkin' from that cup...
I've watched too many wasted tears fall to the ground
So if you want me, let it show
If you don't, please let me know...
'Cause I can't keep on keepin' up just to be let down

VERSE
I thought that I would follow you
Anywhere you want me to
But, every time, you just seem to come unwound
And now you're headin' to a place
That I just can't embrace
No I can't keep on keepin' up just to be let down

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Keepin' up just keeps on gettin' harder
Why can't I just walk away?
The road to lovin' you keeps stretchin' farther
Only a fool would stay

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
No, I can't keep on keepin' up just to be let down
