Half Way Up

Clint Black

 I've seen it goin' 'round when you get bad news

Thinkin' that you found a darker shade of blue
 Lookin' for the light and it's a long way back
You know without a fight you're gonna fade to black
 Never was a man that ever felt this way

one who couldn't stand to live another day
 hard times seem to have the corner on you
but you can rise from the ashes too

When I'm on my knees and everything has gotten me beat
and even I believe I'm never gonna find my feet
Two ways you can go you can ask anybody around
one mans half way up is another mans half way down

Verse 2
 Now you may decide it's a losin' game

even in your stride you're gonna call it lame
 Gettin' one leg up when it's said and done
is the hardest part no matter how you run
 If you can walk away from a crash and burn

you'll appreciate every step you earn
 and if you feel the ground is gainin' on you
you're already bound to take a different view

Repeat Chorus

 One mans ceiling is another mans floor
 One mans wall could be another mans door
 One mans smile is another mans frown
and there are miles of half way up and half way down
