lyrics

I take a look back to clear my head
And see all the things I should have done instead (I wish I didn't doubt myself, I wish)
A choice I made so long ago
Where I went from walking tall to falling low.
And that choice you make so consciously
Will distort itself obnoxiously in time.
Everyone will tell you I was nothing short of lost;
I look back and wonder at the cost.

I learn the hard way (but I never ran when I should've stayed)
Always stand strong

I live inside of this memory
Of who I was and who I wanted to be (I wish I didn't doubt myself, I wish)
A second gone and the choice is made
And now you're begging for a trade.
But these days I start to realize
It's not who I was, it's that I tried to live.
Everyone will tell you I was nothing short of lost;
I look back in wonder at the cost.

I learn the hard way (but I never ran when I should've stayed)
Always stand strong.

You look back and laugh, well, I look back and see a kid
Who bent himself so out of shape it's a wonder he's alive today.
Isn't it funny how we keep on living after the story's told?
In the end we made it -- In the end we made it.
