Luke Gawne – The Olympian lyrics

Feat. Niklas Carson

[Hook:]
Sometimes you'll win, sometimes you'll lose, you get back up and you try to
Choose
Who am I, who do I wanna become, this is the generation of the number one

[Verse One]
They came out, side by side
Skates on, with the goggled eyes
Straight up, it was ride or die
Walk away, or be idolized
And in his final strides, it was all on the line
Here he comes, he's up from behind Patrick Meeks, running out of time
He done squeaked cross the finish line, he had beat Kuck, and qualifies
Heaven it's enough, they never gon' keep up
With Emery Lehman, Cause god he flies'
But that ain't the finish line, nah, It was just the beginning ride
It was just enough to get by
And legitimize, why he tries to be the winning guy
That's why he epitomize 's, greatness
Cause he never gets complacent in the face of his races
When he's so damn tired that he can't even take it
But he gotta keep going, gotta keep showing the world, why he owns it
And just don't lose focus homie this is your moment
Just go for the gold kid

[Hook:]
Sometimes you'll win, sometimes you'll lose, you get back up and you try to
Choose
Who am I, who do I wanna become, this is the generation of the number one
If I believe, I will win this time, I'm chasing ghosts its my time to
Shine. Trying to prove myself to me, and leave a mark in history

[Verse Two]
So he packed his bags with his Blackhawks hat
Reppin' as he board the plane
You're on a, enormous platform
So clap for him, he's at the Olympic games
Transforming an into great, but he's never been into fame
Little did he know that things would change with news interviews and school
Parades
But, when you're the best, and it's evident
People gonna show you respect and jet etiquette
I just think it's better to end up forgetting it
And not letting it get up inside your head and shit
Cause at the end of the day, there ain't nothing to say
When you put on them skates, the gun goes off
And it's, pedal to the metal with a venomous pace
So Emery, never be anything other than Emery
And it's clich', but fuck it, these speed skates are literally everything
They're your legacy
Cause they represent'
All of the ice you've covered
All of the nights you suffered
All of the fight, you mustard on up, when you was stuck and just couldn't
Even account for
Russia
And it might just be, the way that I see, but, who would a thought that a
Kid from op
Would ever make it to, Sochi

[Hook:]
Sometimes you'll win, sometimes you'll lose, you get back up and you try to
Choose
Who am I, who do I wanna become, this is the generation of the number one
If I believe, I will win this time, I'm chasing ghosts its my time to
Shine. Trying to prove myself to me, and leave a mark in history
