Treasure Island

Kirsty Richards


Stay strong


I know it's not easy when life takes away
All the things that you've learned and the things that you know
To replace them with heartache and pain and sorrow

I know all too well how easy it is to give up the fight
When the downs take hold with no end in sight
And the pain will go on through the night til' tomorrow

But soon things will change, the ups will return
You'll rearrange very fast when you learn
The smiles remind you that good times always do follow
