I was nervous, I was scared
He said jump, and I said where
Off this cliff, we're gonna glide
"You must be joking," I replied

Not at all, he said to me
I'll be right here, here's where I'll be
We'll take the plunge, it won't be hard
We'll do it once, and that's a start

Practice makes progress, give it a try
That thing you think you can't do just stresses you
It's just a journey, you and I
Practice makes progress, give it a try

Got a friend in a chair
Rolls around here and there
There are things that he can't do
Ride a bike, tie his shoe

But who said legs or eyes or ears
Makes this world any clearer
He teaches me, I stumble on
And we get up whenever we fall down

Practice makes progress, give it a try
That thing you think you can't do just stresses you
It's just a journey, you and I
Practice makes progress, give it a try

Here it comes again, I'm feeling fearful
Afraid of the mistakes that I might make
But fear is just excitement without oxygen
So I'll take the deepest breath that I can take

A little nervous, a little shy
New situation, my oh my
But here I go, what's there to lose?
I'll still be breathing no matter what I do

Practice makes progress, give it a try
That thing you think you can't do just stresses you
It's just a journey, you and I
Practice makes progress, give it a try

It's just a journey, it's always so
Practice makes progress

Here we go
