don't hold back you gotta believe
you got it you got it you need it
don't be afraid of anything
you got you got it believe it
come on now don't say maybe
hold your breath
you got it you need it
hold on tight now for the ride of your life
you gotta believe it

words hurt truth heals sometimes both kill
we can wish that everything was easy
counting all the ways that life's not fair
i say I'm not going down that easy
I'm not gonna fall because your not here

don't lose touch you gotta believe
you got it you got it you need it
don't forget the way it feels
you got you got it believe it
come on now don't say sorry
hold your ground
you got it you need it
hold your head up for the time of your life
you gotta believe it

words hurt truth heals sometimes both kill
we can wish that everything was easy
counting all the ways that life's not fair
i say I'm not going down that easy
I'm not gonna fall because your not here
(don't look back and don't feel bad
you got it you got it you need it)

we've seen it all
we've been through it all together
we've been through the fire
you gain your chance from me
we have seen you fall
we've painted the town red together
we're still standing tall
as i gain my strength from you
there's beauty everywhere
there's beauty everywhere

we can wish that everything was easy
counting all the ways that life's not fair
(don't look back and don't feel bad
you got it you got it you need it)
i say I'm not going down that easy
I'm not gonna fall because your not here
(don't look back and don't feel bad
you got it you got it you need it)

we can wish that everything was easy
counting all the ways that life's not fair
(don't look back and don't feel bad
you got it you got it you need it)
i say I'm not going down that easy
I'm not gonna fall because your not here
(don't look back and don't feel bad
you got it you got it you need it)

    General CommentFirst of all...cool drum beat at the beggining..

    Secondly, I think its about a breakup in which you dont be 'weak' becuase the other person has left you..

    General CommentThe title is from a Spanish poem by Antonio Machado. In it, he writes, "Caminante, no hay camino/Se hace camino al andar", or "Walker, there is no road/we make the road by walking".

    General CommentGood song. About you being strong for yourself, perhaps.
