Time is bearing down on me
And it's taken years for me to see
Mistakes, regrets, misconception
Oh the price I've paid to learn this lesson
Feeling like I'm stuck in a stagnant rut
Poor choices I've made have slammed the door shut
On days gone by I wish I could bring back
Regret has eaten my hope right out

Sitting around, reminiscing
On days gone by, days I'm missing

Failure! It feeds on the fear of
Rejection! Rejection! Overshadowing, looming near
Cause you reject yourself if you're afraid to try
As opportunity passes you by
And it has, it will, if I don't change
Gotta bust out of this cognitive cage
Drowning in thought, sinking lower
This has to end, I've decided it' s over now

I can't live like this
I'm taking back my life
I'm not gonna think too much
Take action, kick in the drive
Forget the past, forget the time
Make the most of the moment
Enrich my life
The more I try, results I'll get
Because trying is success that I won't regret
No I won't regret!
