I most likely went by means of 20 re-writes on the lyrics, which has eight completely different not-so-great issues the primary character has to cope with from getting his hours minimize at work to his girlfriend dumping him. The verses then arrange the cry within the refrain to remain robust and to get again up and by no means give up after taking a tough punch to the intestine. The photographs had been the simple half as a result of the lyric dictated what picture to search for.

    I wrote ‘Sturdy!’ to assist those that are down, to get again up. To encourage these near quitting, to preserve making an attempt. To encourage those that have misplaced their religion, to preserve believing. And to induce those that are discouraged and weary … to be robust!! If ‘Sturdy!’ doesn’t get you pumped up, higher verify the guts monitor!
