she moves to l.a.
she wants to be somebody
three and a half years later
she's still not anybody
she's still hoping for a break while she's waiting tables
realizing some dreams are fables
fear grows when she knows that she's out of control
throwing up in the bathroom hoping that nobody knows
and she fears she's a failure
she forgets that God loves her

you tried and you failed, hold your head up high
you climbed and you fell, hold your head up high
you tried and you failed, hold your head up high
hold your head up, hold your head up high

cause if we never make it ever
then it's gonna be okay with me
cause if it's not okay to fall sometimes
it's not okay to be
if they don't want us
it's okay, honest
it doesn't have to bring me down
let them say we're not big rockstars ...
it's not what we're about

we don't have to be rockstars
we don't have to be rockstars

they said he'd never make it
maybe they're right
his parents never believed that his dream could take flight
all he ever wanted was for them to be proud of him
it was the whole world to him
he needed to win
he gave it his everything, but sometimes it's not enough
he thinks he's a failure, now he's not worth being loved
he forgets he had the courage to climb up so high
the courage to try, the courage to fly

you tried and you failed, hold your head up high
you climbed and you fell, hold your head up high
you tried and you failed, hold your head up high
hold your head up, hold your head up high

cause if we never make it ever
then it's gonna be okay with me
cause if it's not okay to fall sometimes
it's not okay to be
if they don't want us
it's okay, honest
it doesn't have to bring me down
let them say we're not big rockstars ...
it's not what we're about

we don't have to be rockstars
we don't have to be rockstars

it's not about success
life is not a test
you don't pass or fail
you just do your best
to see the view from wings of courage
to push on through when we're discouraged
it's all about the try, all about the ride
learning how you meant to touch the sky
failures are fliers who touch down
only they know what it's like to leave the ground

so if we never make it ever
then it's gonna be okay with me
cause if it's not okay to fall sometimes
it's not okay to be
if they don't want us
it's okay, honest
it doesn't have to bring me down
let them say we're not big rockstars ...
it's not what we're about

we don't have to be rockstars
we don't have to be rockstars
we don't have to be rockstars
we don't have to be rockstars
