Sinking like a burst balloon
With the weight that's in your eyes
Hit the brakes before you crash
You're black and blue from trying

Caterpillar crawling
They love to watch you falling
They'll always put you down
They love to watch you falling

So hold on to the feeling inside you
When you're dreaming
Your world is on fire and you're alive
Hold on and don't let it stop you from believing
The butterfly couldn't always fly

Born again you're beautiful
And back to change the world
You're far too young to know it all
And too old not to care
Life was never fair
They love to watch you falling

So hold on to the feeling inside you
When you're dreaming
Your world is on fire and you're alive
Hold on and don't let it stop you from believing
The butterfly couldn't always fly
Hold on and don't let it stop you from believing
The butterfly couldn't always fly

    General CommentOh this album is amazing! I love this song, to me it just means never giving up, doesn't matter what other people say or how they might make you feel.
