Who’s to say that your mind won’t change Yesterday’s excuses just aren’t relevant today t may take time it may take a strong will But we don’t have to swallow such a bitter pill Better to have tried Better to have learned Better to take that risk Than let this world wear you down Half our time’s spent wishing for something else The other half lost in a breath The standards I set were always for myself Sorry if you thought they applied to anyone else I always promised I’d try my best I can’t stand to see you waste what’s in yourself And now I’m asking Are you happy with second best It’s so contrived and disappointing To see you complacent like all the rest
The questions and the doubts each year that keep on building up, they can’t shake you And the place in our lives that age is meant to define, can’t define you And the pressure that’s building up, it can’t push you And all the things in our lives meant to keep us In line Well they can’t break you if you bring it to life
Yes the hope inside, it’s the hope inside that saves your life The hope inside, you’ve got to bring it to life
Last night I fell asleep with my clothes on. In the middle of summer. I woke up shaking from the cold. Beneath these empty covers. I started sleeping on my back. Because you used to… and I miss you. I found your note when I came to. It was a heartfelt thank you that broke my heart in two. So pack up and leave this place behind. Your eyes are so much brighter now. That I’m too scared to look at you. In a room so full of people. I have never felt so alone.
