My whole life!
I've been staring into the rearview.
Forever doubting every step that I take.
I spent so much time looking backwards I missed
everything happening right in front of my face.
Another day, another week, another year I've wasted (
On pointless self-hatred).
Second guessing if I've got what it takes
and resenting the world for all my mistakes (
But I've bent too far to break). (
I might make it) I keep telling myself I'm
short selling myself and I just might make it. (
Chance I'll take it) I keep telling myself
I'm short selling myself It's a chance I'll take.
So I'll break down these walls I've built
so tall to hide myself from everyone else.
But I've found out despite all doubt that I was born for this.
With any other opportunity well let's face it I'd just waste it.
I've thought this over half a thousand
times and my mind is made up I know what I want.
Ever since I've undertaken
This new sense of determination.
I finally feel like I've got what it takes
To handle everything that life throws my way.
This time I refuse to lose I've made up my mind.
I'm ready for whatever's coming
On my own two feet again.
All along I've wondered
If I'll ever make it anywhere.
But if I don't at least I'll know I tried to make my life my own.
That I was born for so much more.
I've never been so sure I know that I was born for this.
