Fooling Yourself Lyrics

Relax.. Take it easy..
"You see the world through your cynical eyes
You're a troubled young man I can tell
You've got it all in the palm of your hand
But your hand's wet with sweat
And your head needs a rest
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it.
Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me?
And how can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb
Such a caring young man
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're killing yourself if you don't believe it
Get up, (get up!) get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it
Come on (come on!) let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it.

Like poisonivy; I listen to this song and think of my 25 year old son who is a full blown alcoholic. He's finally reaching out for help. GET UP!

Well, I was there when this came out, and I just sent it to my meth-addicted son.. I'll doubt he'll get it, until he really wants too.

Undoubtedly one of the premier of premier songs of thirty years ago....still top of the tops today where songs have more meaning in words than the music, but the music is almost equal in strength.
