It takes time to let it show
Let the feeling come and take hold
It’s never easy waiting for it to unfold

It takes strength to let it show,
Let the feeling out and open up
Your arms and let the world into your soul

It’s never easy being wrong
But it’s harder when you know your right, but you can’t speak your mind
Cus’ you’re too scared to fight

And everybody thinks your weak,
But it takes more strength than they will ever know
To stand and face the world and never let it show

CHORUS
So we may think we have the right
To say everything we think, and think everything’s all right
It’s not right. Oh no. It’s not right

So you try to play the fool
Try to hide from all the ridicule
That takes the wind out of the sails that carry you

And when you try to find your feet,
It seems there’s always someone waiting there
To push you into the arms of defeat.

You’ gotta wonder “what’s the point?”
Of even trying to raise your voice
If all it seems to do is leave you facing more and more abuse

And so you learn to hold your peace
And learn turn the other cheek,
Until the time is right, you hold your breath and long for the release

CHORUS
So we may think we have the right
To say everything we think, and think everything’s all right
But its not right……oh no,

Because sticks and stones can break you,
But words can change your life
It’s not right. Oh no. It’s not right

But see it’s easy being right
When you think you're wrong but everyone around you
Keeps on giving you the strength to prove them right.
