lyrics

I remember before things were hard, I had a plan to go very far
everything was telling me
Don't give up hope, if you do than you're through.
So I sang out loud and did what I had to
But life bit back and there you have the reason i quit.

I don't want to see, the challenges facing me. I fear they will grip my hopes and tear the life out of my dreams. I know that I can't live without my gift to give, so despite those warnings I will carry on.

I remember my very first show, nobody around hardly would know me
and all the signs before my eyes said
Don't give up hope, if you do than you're through
So I sang out proud and did what I knew to
and out there on the limb I felt the wind begin to shift. That's when I arrived.

The music was loud and gave me direction, so I made a friend and we strive for perfection. We would write all night until our eyes felt heavy. I had to face the sound of possibly falling down, no one knew how scared and stupid I had thought I was. But in the end a broken glass is better than to regret the past. Ill give my all until there is nothing left.

I remember how it used to be, overwhelming doubt constantly growing. That was life before, but now I'm finally sure.

I don't want to see, the challenges facing me. I fear they will grip my hopes and tear the life out of my dreams. I know that I can't live without my gift to give, so despite those warnings I will carry on.
