Keep your head up

Been doin’ a whole lot of thinkin’

‘Bout people bringin’ me down

Sometimes I feel like I'm sinkin’

While the world is just standin’ and watchin’ me drown

Don’t know what I would do

If I didn't have you

You help get me through

I love you

I love you

Oh baby it's true

‘Cuz you say:

“you gotta keep your head up,

go do good for yourself right now

Ooh keep your head up.”

Author's note: For fun, I added my lyrics and vocal melody to the instrumentals from a talented musician named Kevin Olusola a few years ago.
