We're not indestructible.
Baby better get that straight
I think it's unbelievable,
How you give into the hands of fate.

Some things are worth fighting for,
Some feelings never die.
I'm not askin' for another chance,
I just wanna know why?

There's no easy way. There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out, givin' in can't be wrong.

I don't wanna pacify.
I don't wanna drag you down,
But I'm feelin like a prisoner.
Like a stranger in a no name town.

I see all the angry faces,
So afraid that could be you and me;
Talkin about what might have been,
Thinkin about what used to be.

There's no easy way out. There's no shortcut home.
Ther's no easy way out. Givin' in can't be wrong.

Baby, baby we can shed this skin...
We can know how we feel inside.
Instead of goin' down an endless road,
Not knowin if we're dead or alive.

Some things are worth fightin' for.
Some feelings never die.
I'm not askin for another chance,
I just wanna know why?

There's no easy way out. There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out givin in, givin in can't be wrong, no.
There's no easy way out. There's no shortcut home.
There's no easy way out, there's no easy no easy way out.

(Repeat and fade)

    This has always been a powerful and inspiring song for me. Everytimei hear it, it reminds me that to achieve a dream, a goal, you have to be willing to put in the time. When you're tired, take a break but not a hiatus. It's symbolic. In order to achieve anything that means the ability to feel self fulfilled and understand what you love, essentially means to give it your all. Don't let anything detour your focus!!! :)

    When you do something that isn't what you wanna do,but for some reason,you do it any way. Because you don't know what else to do.. Even thou you don't wanna do it.. You don't know what else to do..

    It comes down to choosing when you are going to go down the road less traveled. When you choose to go after what you want no matter the odds. Realizing that the questions of 'what could have been' or 'what might have been' are not worth a life of opportunity to waste and have to look back in frustration or even anger like the song says. This song says so much more.

    Never give up,and people give up(give in) all the time so its not wrong but if you want something your going to have to work for your not just gonna be able to take the easy way out.and if you let it pass by trying to take the easy way you could end up like all the anrgy faces looking back wishing you could have actually worked for it and succeed

    Some things just aren't meant to be and no matter how you try the outcome will be the same so you're better off giving up before you lose a lot more
