On Solid Ground

Darlin we've been through some hard times
And regrets I've had a few
I gave my best to make you happy
It wasn't good enough for you
So today its all over
I'll be seeing you around
I'm standing up and stepping over
Moving on to solid ground
Cause life's about choices and I've made a few
To start living for myself now and honey not for you
But you better get it straight now I ain't leaving this town
Baby from now on I'll be standing on solid ground

You taught me life is what you make it
That's a simple line but true
But when it comes to how you're living
The choice is really up to you
Keep your eye upon tomorrow
Live your dreams and make em last
Take the time to smell the roses
And learn a lesson from the past

So darling thank you for the good times
Tears will never need to fall
It's not the end it's the beginning
Of a new day after all,
I'll just try to keep my head high
Even when they get me down
I'll take a stand and keep on standing
High upon the solid ground

(chorus again)

You can count on it baby, I'll be standing on solid ground
