never knocked me down lyrics – jack ingram

you could’ve been a contender
the next great white hope
not just another pretender
not just the next big joke

you had to reach for the stars though
n*body gets it all
without playin’ a game, son
you’re gonna take a fall

you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down

you don’t get nothin’ for nothin’
ain’t that what they all say
we’re all fightin’ for somethin’
but there’s a price to pay

yeah, you can stand there forever
just take it blow by blow
n*body else is the wiser
they just came for the show

you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down

but in the fists of a stranger
there is a shadow of doubt
go on, pretend you’re a winner
go on, sell yourself out

you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down

you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
you’ve never knocked me down
