lyrics

And though I've taken up this torch,
just to let it burn out
I'll set fire to my heart,
let the flames consume my doubt
And though I've tried and fallen
ten thousand times before
I will stand again and
I will try once more

My demons have knocked me down
again
life looks so bleak here from the ground,
my friend
to be like the birds
in the trees
they go where they will,
so free

Don’t look at me like that
I’m sure you’ve fallen before
don’t look at me like that
we're all fighting our own war

they whisper lies
keep me paralyzed
like standing still
feet glued to the ground
like lying there
watching myself drown
too scared to step forward
afraid I'll fall back
uncertain,
untoward
I know what I lack

like a bird without wings,
I no longer fly
but like a phoenix from the flames,
once again I'll rise
