lyrics

I Won't Let Failure Go To My Head

I won't succeed and won't cry again
But I will keep on hanging in there
All those old tears are dry again
You name the lowest point, I've been there
My upper lip can't be more stiff
This chin can take a mighty bashing
The smell of success, I can't get a whiff
Those smashes never started smashing

I'm going to dismiss those hurtful words I read
I won't let failure go to my head
Lose all reminders of the poor campaign I led
I won't let failure go to my head

Those passing grades are passing me by
Good thing I'm used to such rejection
Just take a peak you can see why
I see it in my own reflection

The deepest, darkest thoughts I would take to my bed
I won't let failure go to my head
What used to drag me down, no longer do I dread
I won't let failure go to my head

I wish I had a fear a success
But what can't happen doesn't scare me at all
How would I be I won't have to guess
I'm sure that fate's going to spare me that call

Complete discouragement, It's about time I shed
I won't let failure go to my head
I hope I do believe all of the things I said
And not let failure go to my head

I won't let failure go to my head

Each time John Dunbar put out a new solo album he first played it for his close friend, and fave drummer, Sal Nunziato, He always hoped Sal would ask to play on the next record. Each time Sal heard a new Dunbar record, he wondered why he was never asked to play on it. They both always dreamed of playing with mutual friend, Sal Maida. After the unspoken was spoken, The John Sally Ride was formed. ... more
