So, staring at the wall
Feeling ten feet small
It's like the world is on your shoulders now
Nothing's making sense,
You just wanna quit.
You run away but you just don't know
How to feel, what is real,
You're not alone.

(CHORUS)
Everybody falls,everybody cries,
Everybody feels like a nobody sometimes
You get up again, give it one more try
Everybody's got what it takes on the inside
Story of your life, story of your life
It's the story of my life

Then, sometimes you gotta crawl
Before you start to walk
I've been there
I've had my rainy days
You try to keep a smile
You go the extra mile
You run the race no matter where you place
You know which way to go so turn the page

(CHORUS)
Everybody falls, everybody cries
Everybody feels like a nobody sometimes
You get up again, give it one more try
Everybody's got what it takes on the inside
Story of your life, story of your life
It's the story of my life

It's hard to be strong
No right seems wrong
And nobody hears what you say
So don't be afraid
Hold on to your faith
I swear to you there will be better days

So, staring at the wall
Feeling ten feet small
It's like the world is on your shoulders

(CHORUS)
Everybody falls, everybody cries
Everybody feels like a nobody sometimes
You get up again, give it one more try
Everybody's got what it takes on the inside

Everybody falls (everybody falls), everybody cries (and everybody cries)
Everybody feels like a nobody sometimes
You get up again, give it one more try
Everybody's got what it takes on the inside
Story of your life, story of your life
It's the story of my life
