take the reins lyrics – jude cole

liven up, lose the chains
it’s hard to lie down in the driving rain
i lost a job i thought i had
my friends say, maybe that ain’t so bad

you gotta lose boy, to learn to win
life’s just a game, i’ll never understand

but the ride is rough
and when you fall, you better get back up
take the reins by the hand
and learn to fall like a man

my baby called from the south of france
and said, “i know what you want buddy”
but there ain’t no chance
i finally found my pot of gold

and what you hide, mine is yours to hold
baby darling, i’m just a man
and love’s just a game, i’ll never understand

she said, the ride is rough
and when you fall, you just get back up
take the reins by the hand
and learn to crawl like a man

brother, if you can
you learn to crawl like a man, yeah
take the reins like a man
if you can

you gotta lose boy, to learn to win
life’s just a game, i’ll never understand

well, the ride is rough
and when you fall, you just get back up
take the reins by the hand
and learn to crawl like a man

brother, if you can
learn to crawl like a man
