Lauren Samuels – Someone You'd Be Proud Of lyrics

I’ve done a lot of things that I’m not proud of
Things that if you’d been around, I know would make you sad
I’ve been a selfish person one who gave up
And never saw the things that I still have

All I wanted was to see you every day since you were gone
But now if I turn and look I know I won’t go
So let memories stay memories kept safe inside my heart
For ten years late, I finally think I know

It’s time to say goodbye, it’s time to start to try
For who I’ve been is not who I should be
It’s time to choose what’s right; instead of choose to hide,
From this day I promise I will try, and see if I can be
Someone you’d be proud of, someone you’d be proud of

I never thought that I’d do something special,
If something needed saving I was not the one you’d pick
But now this place needs something like a hero
And there’s no one here but me

I never can go backwards and undo the past
The only moment I can change is this one
There’s no one left to follow and no arms to break a fall
Yet for once though I may fail I swear I won’t run
But I’m a little scared
I wish I was braver here
Still, this time, I won’t give in

It’s time that I believe
Expect I can achieve
And if I fail at least I gave it all
It’s time to choose what’s right
Instead I’m justified
Maybe I can’t change the world
But I can try, and do my best to be
Someone you’d be proud of,
Someone you’d be proud of,
Someone you’d be proud of.
Someone you’d be proud of.
I won’t let you down.
