lyrics

Child don't be afraid
it doesn't have to end this way
you're lost, and had enough
and the only way to look is up

this isn't how you say goodbye
you have to kick you have to climb
it won't be perfect every time

the world turns it's head
as your lungs fill with water
it's the place you'd give up
but I raised you much smarter
there's no secret trick
and no ticket gets you in
all you do is close your eyes and swim


child don't waste your time
you'll never know which days are your prime
some live out their dreams
but no one ever got theirs for free

this isn’t how you say goodbye
you have to kick you have to climb
it won't be perfect every time

the world turns it's head
as your lungs fill with water
it's the place you'd give up
but I raised you much smarter
there's no secret trick
and no ticket gets you in
all you do is close your eyes and swim


we have to crash before we fly
walk through the flames and then ignite
it can't be perfect every time

the world turns it's head
as your lungs fill with water
it's the place you'd give up
but I raised you much smarter
there's no secret trick
and no ticket gets you in

all you do is close your eyes and swim
you stop thinking of the starts and just start in
would you turn all the noise and just begin
