Lyrics

Life has it's ceilings and floors
Open windows and doors,
That slam in your face from time to time
Aiming for the sky
Trying to build an empire
Feels like breaking bones and
Thorns on a vine

Every bit of work that I put in it
I know I'm gonna get it back
I know that I'm gonna cross the finish
If it takes all that I have

Cuz Rome wasn't built in a day
No, gold doesn't shine right away
One stone at a time is
What it takes to get there
No, Rome wasn't built in a day
I won't give up if the ground doesn't break
I'm strong enough to carry the weight
And Rome wasn't built in a day

Can't see the forest from the trees
I dug my roots in deep
The winds may twist me but I won't fall
I'll take the sticks and stones
And make 'em into a throne
Sit back and admire it all

Every bit of work that I put in it
I know I'm gonna get it back
I know that I'm gonna cross the finish
If it takes all that I have

Cuz Rome wasn't built in a day
No, gold doesn't shine right away
One stone at a time is
What it takes to get there
No, Rome wasn't built in a day
I won't give up if the ground doesn't break
I'm strong enough to carry the weight
And Rome wasn't built in a day
(Rome wasn't built in a day)
(Rome wasn't built in a day)

The best things in life let them take their time
Nothing worth having happens overnight
The best things in life let them take their time
Nothing worth having happens overnight

Rome wasn't built in a day
No, gold doesn't shine right away
One stone at a time's what it takes to get there
No, Rome wasn't built in a day
I won't give up if the ground doesn't break
I'm strong enough to carry the weight
And Rome wasn't built in a day
(Rome wasn't built in a day) (No)
(Rome wasn't built in a day) (Built in a day)
