~ If You're Going Through Hell ~
The Backside of the Bright Side by Terri McPherson The Backside of the Bright Side

~ If You’re Going Through Hell ~

Well, you know those times when you feel like
There's a sign there on your back
Says, “I don't mind if you kick me
Seems like everybody has”
Things go from bad to worse
You think they can't get worse
Than that an' then they do

You step off the straight an' narrow
An' you don't know where you are
Use the needle of your compass
To sew up your broken heart
Ask directions from a genie
In a bottle of Jim Beam an' she lies to you

Well, that's when you learn the truth
If you're goin' through hell
Keep on goin'
Don't slow down
If you're scared don't show it
You might get out
'Fore the devil even knows you're there

Well, I've been deep down in that darkness
I been down to my last match
Felt a hundred different demons
Breathin' fire down my back
An' I knew that if I stumbled
I'd fall right into the trap
That they were layin', yeah

But, the good news is there's angels
Everywhere out on the street
Holdin' out a hand
To pull you back up on your feet
The one's that you been draggin' for so long
You're on your knees
You might as well be prayin'

Guess what I'm sayin'
If you're goin' through hell
Keep on goin'
Don't slow down
If you're scared don't show it
You might get out
'Fore the devil even knows you're there

Yeah, if you're goin' through hell
Keep on movin'
Face that fire
Walk right through it
You might get out
'Fore the devil even knows you're there
Oooh

~ Instrumental break ~

If you're goin' through hell
Keep on goin'
Don't slow down
If you're scared don't show it
You might get out
'Fore the devil even knows you're there

Yeah, if you're goin' through hell
Keep on movin'
Face that fire
Walk right through it
You might get out
'Fore the devil even knows you're there

Yeah, you might get out
'Fore the devil even knows you're there
Yeah, ooh, ooh ooh . . . Oh
