At this point of my life
It comes as no surprise
I’ve watched 5 plus years
Slowly pass me by
This is not the place I thought I’d be
An empty room, I’m too afraid to leave
I thought escape was out of reach
until I heard a voice assuring I’d succeed
So now I know the only true defeat
Is settling for less than you know you need
To go without cause a lack of drive
Is giving up too young and choosing where you die

with every breathe and every action you said
I did this all for you
and through the message you lived to show me
I know, what I have to do
I'll stand up for my dreams (for my dreams)
and everyone that stands behind me

This time around, I’ll make you proud x2

I’ll live my life in dedication to what you wanted most
to fight for what I know is right, paying homage to your ghost
I’ll be moving forward while keeping you in mind
so you can see what we created in this short amount of time
I’ll put everything I have into this
to build something greater than we could ever predict
and leave our mark, so they’ll never forget
that failures not an option in the life I live
the path I chose or the effort I give
its done for you and everything you did
the sacrifices you made are why I do it for you

It’s all for you x3

I know before that I let you down
well I promise now/this time/ill make you proud x2
And although it seems so distant
I’ve got nothing if I’m not persistent
it's never ending x2
