It takes guts to be comfortable with who you are and what you are feeling and thinking. Eventually you get tired of not, but it’s still an everyday battle.

Lyrics

Letting go of worry
Letting go of pain
Every day’s a trial
Gotta do it all again, and again
Forgiving all my failures
And all the dumb-ass shit I’ve done
Keep my head above the water
Even when it isn't fun
Keep on keeping on is what they say
So I keep on keeping on for one more day

Wish I could be easy in my skin
Wish I could be easy in my skin

Letting go is easy
If you are born a saint
But it’s making me all queasy
Cause that is something that I ain’t
Forgiveness is for angels
(No it’s) not for mortal men
Keep my head from exploding
Better breathe and count to ten
Keep on keeping on is what they say
So I keep on keeping on for one more day

Wish I could be easy in my skin
Wish I could be easy in my skin
Wish I could feel easy in my skin
Wish I could be easy in my skin

The starting line is blurry
The finish line is clear
I never got the damn directions
How to get from there to here
The road will always be a hard one
I guess it must be fate
You gotta take what you are given
Gotta eat what's on your plate
Keep on keeping on is what they say
So I keep on keeping on for one more day

Wish I could be easy in my skin
Wish I could be easy in my skin
Wish I could feel easy in my skin
Wish I could be easy in my skin
