I met a man of two feet tall.
This man was quite ambitious.
In a world that is so vicious to us all.
I said hi as he replied.
He said listen to these words
That I have lived by my whole life.

You're only as tall as your heart will
Let you be, and you're only as small as the
World will make you seem,
And when the going gets rough and you
Feel like you may fall just look on the
Brightside you're roughly six feet tall.

I met a man of twelve feet tall.
He towered like a giant.
In a world that was defiant of his height.
I said hi as he replied.
He said listen to these words
That I have dreaded my whole life.

You're only as tall as your heart will
Let you be, and you're only as small as the
World will make you seem,
And when the going gets rough and you
Feel like you may fall just look on the
Brightside your roughly six feet tall.

I am a man of six feet tall
Just looking for some answers in
A world that answers none of them at all.
I'll say hi but not reply to the
Letters that you write because I've found
Some piece of mind.

I'm only as tall as my heart will
Let me be, and I'm only as small as the
World will make me seem,
And when the going gets rough and I
Feel like I may fall I'll look on the
Brightside I'm roughly six feet tall
