I've been down in the ground before
With a head & a heart that's torn.
With the feeling in the can that I can't leave home
In a crowded room but you feel alone.
But like a bad penny, Im coming back,
I never got lost, just got on the wrong track,
But I'm turning it around, compass in my hand,
I'm gonna make mistakes cause they make me what I am
It doesnt matter where you're from
Its where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says youre wrong
We'll stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on
So when you find that youre close to the edge,
Dont step back, step forward instead,
A leap of faith or a madmans scheme
If it hurts then it works theres no in-between.

Dont sleep; no time to rest.

You gotta give till you got nothing left,
You can push me off edge and I'll take the fall,
Id rather die trying than not try at all.
My arms are open
My hands are full
My heart is like a waterfall
I may be broken
But Im standing tall
My heart is like a waterfall
It doesnt matter where you're from
Its where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says youre wrong
We'll stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on
It doesnt matter where you're from
Its where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says youre wrong
We'll stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on
