about

This song was produced during the pandemic by The Brothers Grin and recorded remotely. Eight Two was creating loop sketches on guitar and vocals with words to motivate himself through the scary lockdown times and he thought they might help others if they were shaped into a soulful dance track, but was stuck on how to combine them. The Grins sculpted the song into shape and he re-recorded his guitars and vocals. Eight Two hopes the result encourages you, to keep on...

lyrics

Choose someone, and stand by them
Choose your why, and stick to it

Choose someone, and stand by them
Choose your why, and stick to it

Not if but when you fail, just keep on keeping on
Not if but when you fall, just keep on keeping on
Not if but when you stall, just keep on keeping on
Not if but when you hit the wall, just keep on keeping on

Try and again you fail, just keep on keeping on
Climb up and then you fall, just keep on keeping on
Start over then you stall, just keep on keeping on
Bang bang your head against the wall, just keep on keeping on

Choose one thing, commit to it
Make up your mind, and stick to it
Choose your thing, and make it fit
Until you die, refuse to quit

Not if but when you fail, just keep on keeping on
Not if but when you fall, just keep on keeping on
Not if but when you stall, just keep on keeping on
Not if but when you hit the wall, just keep on keeping on

Every day is ours, I can start over, you can start over, we can start over again
Every day is ours, I can start over, you can start over, we can start over again
Every day is ours, I can start over, you can start over, we can start over again
Every day is ours, I can start over, you can start over, we can start over again

Keep at it
Keep at it
Keep at it, move a little further, one step at a time
Keep moving a little bit further, one step at a time

Keep at it
Keep at it
Keep at it, move a little further, one step at a time
Keep moving a little bit further, one step at a time

Try and again you fail, just keep on keeping on
Climb up and then you fall, just keep on keeping on
Start over, then you stall, just keep on keeping on
Bang bang your head against the wall, just keep on keeping on

Just keep on keeping on
Just keep on keeping on
Just keep on keeping on
Just keep on keeping on
