Did I really think I could walk away
From every mistake that I ever made?
Was I just trying to forget it all?
Now it's time that I push my pride aside
To admit I'm wrong and find some peace of mind.
To fall in love and to love the fall.

I'll never know the flow well enough to go with it.
I guess it goes to show life's a race I cannot win.
But I'll keep trying to forget it all.
I know I've got a lot to be thankful for,
And it seems I've got a shot to make it out the door with it.
To fall in love and to love the fall.

Spent a lot of college time thinking about what I want from life…
And I never found an answer.
Always changing up my mind, never thinking what is inside my head and my heart.
So I started asking questions:

What if the greed for gold just takes control?
When will it be my turn to save my own soul?

Oh, I found a will to fight for what's right.
I know all will heal in time, (so I) guess I'm in for the night.

Time is ticking away, but I, oh I, yes, I feel I'm getting closer
to living every day out the fullest way.
I can't believe I'm already twenty-three.

To think what I've accomplished, to look at what I've done…
I hope to leave a story behind when my song is sung.

What's a life to live if you're not loving?
No, I won't back down.
