Sam Paine – As If I Couldn't See lyrics

They tell me stay in touch
Boy you could be so much
You could be so much more
Just open up that door
Seize opportunity
As if I couldn't see
As if I didn't know what I could be

They swear I'll never fall
I'll rise above it all
The world can't hold me down
I'll turn it all around
They see no strings on me
As if I couldn't see
As if I didn't know that I was free

They say I should go far
They know that I'm a star
They say we hope that you
Do what you want to do
They say it is their plea
As if I couldn't see
As if I didn't know their hopes for me

They tell me I've got skill
And say I just need will
And if I do not strive
To keep my art alive
They fear obscurity
As if I couldn't see
As if I didn't share that same worry

They point her out and say
That girl will have her day
She's got it all worked out
She knows what it's about
And what she wants to be
As if I couldn't see
As if she wasn't everything to me
