So, this was not how you planned it.
No, oh you don't understand it.
Why, is it so misleading?
When all you really wanted became so defeating.
Time, well it only got harder
Thought you had one but it was another.
Then, you believed in a breakthrough
But it took you by surprise when you came out a fool.

Chorus

You gotta fail a thousand times
Before you see it through.
You gotta spend your last dime
Before you ever make a million.
You gotta know what brought you here
And you gotta lose to persevere.
But it's the way the sun will rise
Through the darkest night.
Yeah it's always been worth the fight.

Chance can replace experience
Every time time you stand up
You build up a tolerance
To, things you can't control
And next the time it happens you will be on your own
Hope, it can make you courageous
It started out small, but now it's contagious.
Strength, it's an honor you earn
And the next time it happens you will be on your own

Chorus (x2)
You gotta fail a thousand times
Before you see it through.
You gotta spend your last dime
Before you ever make a million.
You gotta know what brought you here
And you gotta lose to persevere.
But it's the way the sun will rise
Through the darkest night.
Yeah it's always been worth the fight.

Yeah it's always been worth the fight
