I put one foot in front of the other, give that handle a quarter turn
Agree on terms with daybreak, shake hands with uncertainty
And when it’s time to stretch my shadow
I hope I’ve loved, I hope I’ve learned
Cross my fingers I awake to opportunity

Look down at your shirt, a candle seeks a flame
Remember as a child when I used to see my name
Written in the sky, swear there used to be stars
Connecting dots and dreams
Look at who you are, remember where you came
Cherish all the scars ‘cause you made it through the same
Tell yourself who you are, you could do it all again
Don’t be who you’re supposed to be

Everything you know, throw it all away
Everything you love isn’t certain to remain
It’s how we make do with the pieces left to play
It’s the wax that keeps us straight
All you need is oxygen, a spark to the brain
You were meant to burn, not sit idle and refrain
The next individual you’ll meet is feeling pain
We’re all battling something

So dry your eyes on a tee-shirt, extend a hand till your knees hurt
Make it a holiday for family and revere the ones you loathe
Love don’t get any cheaper, you’ve gotta chase and believe her
Run around this world until you’re gone
