Artist's Notes

An anthem about never giving up!

The spoken words at the end are from a Muhammed Ali quote


Lyrics

Comeback Kid

(Intro)
What doesn't kill us will make us stronger
(And I'm battered and bruised)
Look into the eyes of any winner
(They hit the ropes and paid their dues).

 

 

F/X: Sound of boxing bell

 

(Spoken) Seconds away

 

(Verse 1)

I had both my eyes
Set on the prize
And a heart that'll never fail,
But I came up short
Of the dream I'd bought
Couldn't grasp that holy grail. 

 

 

(Pre Chorus)
But
I'll come back later and I'll come back stronger
And the time that passes won't quell my hunger
I'll learn to be a little wiser
This was just the appetiser! 

 

(Chorus)
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
You better believe
My name's on that Trophy
Heart's on my sleeve!
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
Comeback kid
My day in the sun
I'm gonna earn it!

 

(Bridge)

 

When life sucker punches

 

When dreams shatter to shards,

 

Pick the glass out of your feet

 

Put on your boots

 

And work the hard yards. 

 

(Verse 2)

 

It was a tough defeat

 

Cut down to size

 

And the loss was rough to take,

 

To admit I?d come up short

 

Of where I?d thought

 

This journey?s end would be made.

 

(Pre Chorus)
But
I'll come back later and I'll come back stronger
And the time that passes won't quell my hunger
I'll learn to be a little wiser
This was just the appetiser! 

 

(Chorus)
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
You better believe
My name's on that Trophy
Heart's on my sleeve!
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
Comeback kid
My day in the sun
I'm gonna earn it!

(Verse 3)
In the darkest nights

 

The hardest fights

 

Are the ones you do alone,

 

I may have come up short

 

But the lesson?s taught

 

Won?t make those mistakes again. 

 

(Pre Chorus)

Yeah
I'll come back later and I'll come back stronger
And the time that passes won't quell my hunger
I've learnt to be a little wiser
That was just the appetiser!

(Chorus)
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
You better believe
My name's on that Trophy
Heart's on my sleeve!
I'll be the COMEBACK KID
Comeback kid
My day in the sun
I'm gonna earn it!
 

 

(Spoken outro ? Muhammed Ali quote)

 

?Only a man who knows what it is to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even?.
