We cast away our worries of losing grip-
We swim ashore and escape the sinking ship.
The only place that I feel at home is
Beside this fire that longs to grow.
And now I see this means more to me than
What my shelter may ever be.

So take time, take time, get ahold of it-
We build this house as we see fit-
Memories hold us back from everything we could be-
These memories hold me down
From all that I'm trying to be.

I always knew there was something more
Outside this windows stepping out.
With little money in his dirty jeans,
He sets out to change his scenery.
And though he knows he is far from home,
He feels more alive than he's ever known.
Sure, he's always had a little hope of
All that we have left to show.

So take time, take time, get ahold of it-
We build this house as we see fit.
And hold tight, hold tight to the side of it-
We build this house as we see fit.
Memories hold us back from everything we could be-
These memories hold me down
From all that I'm trying to be.
Memories hold us back from everything we could be-
These memories hold me down
From all that I'm trying to be.

We're holding out for something-
Something I'm certain, let's break-
This type of thinking, let's make-
Let's make this count for something.
Let's make this count for something.

Memories hold us back from everything we could be-
These memories hold me down
From all that I'm trying to be.
Memories hold us back from everything we could be-
These memories hold me down
From all that I'm trying to-
You're holding out for something-
Something I'm certain, let's break-
This type of thinking, let's make-
Let's make this count for something.
