This is where I gotta lay down my pride (and speak on it)
This is where I gotta open my eyes, and my mind (if I want it)
'Cos I've been living blind for all this time,
And the moment has come to set a few things right.
I reached my twenty-first year and I don't feel no different,
Still beaten by the same fear; can't get it out of my system.
And I'm still selfish, and I'm too hard,
I'm too reckless, don't play the right cards.
But one day, I'll get it right;
Until then, I've just got to try.
When everything I've learned goes out the door
And I swear that I can't do this anymore,
I remind myself what I'm living for
And pour my heart out on to the score.
I can't make it right, but I can put it down in words,
I promise I'll try to be a better girl.
I can't make it right, I can't erase all the hurt.
Lord knows, I try - if you stay by my side,
I'll do it different this time.
I keep my eyes to the sky but no stars align.
It could be karma, it might be fate,
Or I'm just born under a bad sign
And I might be hopeless, but I keep faith
Even when all vision is misplaced.
And I won't wait till it's too late
To turn the tide on my mistakes.
They say that when it rains, it's gonna pour,
But I always find my way back to shore.
