Every day I get a little closer to,
The things that I wanna, say with my life,
In no particular order
I'd like to make some sort of mark,
So that the world knows I was here...

And I've been thinkin' about,
How I could scream it out loud,
Or paint a picture somehow,
A thousand miles long
And I've been tryin' 'till now,
These walls are freakin' me out,
Just need to let it all out,
And reach out,
Because sometimes, you can forget who you are

I'm tired of trying to make it,
I've spent so many nights,
Tryin' to get it all right, oh-oh-oh
I'm sick and tired of waiting,
For someone to see, and start believing in me,
Oh-oh-oh
But I know I'm not out here on my own...

Every year I get a little farther from,
Old misconceptions, that take the place,
Of mistakes and lessons,
There's things I've learned from,
Things I've been burned from,
It's part of who I am

And I've been thinkin' about,
How I could scream it out loud,
Or paint a picture somehow,
A thousand miles long
And I've been tryin' 'till now,
These walls are freakin' me out,
Just need to let it all out,
And reach out,
Because sometimes, you can forget who you are

I'm tired of trying to make it,
I've spent so many nights,
Tryin' to get it all right, oh-oh-oh
I'm sick and tired of waiting,
For someone to see, and start believing in me,
Oh-oh-oh
But I know I'm not out here on my own...

There's been a lot of people,
Think I'm goin' no where,
Times that by ten, for every time I felt like turnin' around,
But everytime you said push on
And keep your head up,
Kept me on track from letting myself get fed up

I'm tired of trying to make it,
I've spent so many nights,
Tryin' to get it all right, oh-oh-oh
I'm sick and tired of waiting,
For someone to see, and start believing in me,
Oh-oh-oh
But I know I'm not out here on my own...

    Song is about someone who's in the point of giving up but god pushes him to go on.. God is always with us in any situation. , he will even carry us when we are tired.. So, get going!

    it means that he gets the inspiration to not stop trying from God. it also means that he's tired of doing the things he's doing but won't stop because he knows that he's not out here on his own. he feels like turning around and going back to that empty space but every time God told him to push and keep his head up, it kept him on track from letting himself get fed up.

    ...it simply means that sometimes we say somethings that people just don't believe. The singer wants to point out the he will not stop tellin' that thing until everyone believes him and understands why his doing it.
