It takes a lot to get to the top,
And a little just to fall off quick,
And I think I've seen you here before.

Sometimes you fly so high,
So fast it makes you sick,
You won the battle and lost the war.

But I don't mind if you say,
Everytime you talk to me,
Everytime we talk.

We came, we saw,
We conquered and crumbled,
In our own true way;
We loved, we fought,
We rocked and we tumbled,
In our own true way.

Our own true way.

Well, I believe in brotherhood,
And the good of all mankind,
Though I admit it's hard to find.

But if you want to talk just come and knock,
It don't matter what the time,
Solitude is no friend of mine.

And I don't mind if you say,
Everytime you talk to me,
Everytime we talk.

We came, we saw,
We conquered and crumbled,
In our own true way;
We loved, we fought,
We rocked and we tumbled,
In our own true way.

I don't mind.

It's hard to be from a rock in the sea,
Livin' in a big steel town,
Finding unfamiliar faces all around.

You heard 'em telling stupid jokes,
You heard 'em laugh everytime you spoke,
But you don't let nobody put you down.

But I don't mind if you say,
Everytime you talk to me,
Everytime you talk to me,
Everytime we talk.

We came, we saw,
We conquered and crumbled,
In our own true way;
We loved, we fought,
We rocked and we tumbled,
In our own true way.

In our own true way,
And I don't mind,
If you say.
