I've Been Around

I've been up, I've been down, I've been lost, I've been found
ranked with heavyweights pound for pound
I opened my mouth and found my sound
I've been around
I've laughed, I've cried, I've fell apart inside
fought my battles, stood my ground
I fell off course, I fell off the horse
I've been around
around the world, around the clock, like the earth around the sun
so many times around the block, and not even close to done
I've been in, I've been out, been forgotten about
the unknown queen uncrowned
but I stayed in the game, and I made my name
I've been around
I've been around, I've been around
