"The Lines" as written by David Hall Hodges and Emerson Hart....
When I was old, just nineteen-
I fell in love, I didn't know what it means-
To be good to someone else-
To build a world bigger than myself.
So I learned it, yeah I learned it-
And I'd do anything just to have that back.

When I was old, twenty-two-
I had to burn everything I knew.
It took me years to understand-
Sacrifice makes a better man.
So I burned it, and I earned it-
And I'd do anything just to have that back-
But you can't go back.

It was worth it-
These are the lines that you're made of.
It was certain-
Time that was lost could be made up.
But life hits you fast-
There's no take-backs-
But there's a grace in that.
It was worth it-
These are the lines that you're made of.

When I was old, twenty-eight-
Slowly turned into what I hated.
Everything that I put first-
Took what I loved and made it worse.
Couldn't take it, so I changed it-
I'd seen enough to know when it's best to fight-
And when it's best to let it go.

It was worth it-
These are the lines that you're made of.
It was certain-
Time that was lost could be made up.
But life hits you fast-
There's no take-backs-
But there's a grace in that.
It was worth it-
These are the lines that you're made of.
These are the lines that you're made of.

It was worth it-
These are the lines that you're made of.
It was certain-
Time that was lost could be made up.
But life hits you fast-
There's no take-backs-
But there's a grace in that.
It was worth it-
These are the lines that you're made of.
These are the lines that you're made of-
Ohh...
