When I was young, I used to fight
Always believed my way was right
Now I only see how I was wrong
I didn’t believe in letting go
Had to give out and let them know
If only I had seen what I could have done

It takes only a minute to change in this world
Only a minute, a minute to learn

People would laugh and not tell jokes
The world was full of restless folk
Seems they wouldn’t talk, but only whine
If I had known where fortune lies
Would I have let it pass me by?
Wish I’d realized at the time

It takes only a minute to change in this world
Only a minute, a minute to learn

I want to say, isn’t this the key to life?
Don’t we have a simple right to walk away?
Isn’t it time leads us down this rolling road?
Shouldn’t we just laugh and grow along the way?

When I was young, I used to fight
Only believed my way was right
Now I only see how I was wrong
I didn’t believe in letting go
Had to give out and let them know
If only I had seen what I could have done

It takes only a minute to change in this world
Only a minute, a minute to learn

I want to say, isn’t this the key to life?
Don’t we have a simple right to walk away?
Isn’t it time leads us down this rolling road?
Shouldn’t we just laugh and grow along the way?

Shouldn’t we just laugh and grow along the way?
Shouldn’t we just laugh and grow along the way?
