How do you know where your going,
When you don’t know where you’ve been?
You hide the shame that your not showing,
And you wont let anyone in.
A crowded street can be a quiet place
When your walking alone.

And now you think that you’re the only one
Who doesn’t have to try.
And you wont have to feel,
If you’re afraid to fight,
Then I guess you never will.

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that there’s something more,
Than just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life you’re given,
Like its the only you’ve got.

Memories have left you broken.
And the scars have never healed.
The emptiness in you is growing.
With so little left to feel.
You’re scared to look back on the days before.
You’re too tired to move on.

And now you think that you’re the only one
Who doesn’t have to try.
And you wont have to feel,
If you’re afraid to fly,
Then I guess you never will.

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that there’s something more,
Than just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life you’re given,
Like its the only you’ve got.

Oh, what will it take?
Oh, to get you to say that I’ll try.
And what would you say if this
Was the last day of your life?

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that there’s something more,
Than just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life you’re given,
Like its the only you’ve got.

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that there’s something more,
Than just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life you’re given,
Like its the only you’ve got.
