I tried to face it
I tried to erase it
I tried to race it
I can't erase it

Driving in the slow lane
Watching everybody shooting by
In the fast lane, in the fast lane
Sitting here beside me
There is a shadow from my past
In the front seat I can heart my heartbeat
Faster, faster, faster, faster, faster

I tried to face it
I can't erase it
So I must face it
I must embrace it

I have wasted my time
Dwelling in the shadows from the past
In the front seat did you hear my heartbeat
Forward to the future I must move on I will let go
To the future
That's where I will soar
Higher, higher, higher, higher, higher

So I can face it
Then I will chase it
I will embrace it

You can't outrun your skeleton
No way, No way
You can't outrun your skeleton
No way, No way
Oh
No way, No way
Oh
No way, No way
Oh
No way, No way
Oh

In the corner of the room
I tried to face it
In the corner of the room
I must embrace it
In the corner of the room
And I will chase it
In the corner of the room
I will embrace it
