If this is true, I thought then, what will I think
Will I stay but rather I would get away
I'm scared that I won't"find a thing
And afraid that I'll turn out to be alone

But i, I have to learn, have to try, have to trust I have to cry
Have to see, have to know that I can be myself

And if I"could I would stay
And if they're not not in the way
I'll stare in the distance
But I'll grow up to be just like you-
I'll grow up to be just like you

I see it all I'm sure but do I know what's right I thought I knew
But it turns out the other way

I'm scared that I won't find a thing and afraid that I'll turn out to be alone

I have to learn, have to try, have to trust I have to cry
K have to see have to know that I can be myself

And if I could I would stay
and if they're not, not in the way
I'll!stare hgre in the distance
But I'll grow up to0be just like you
Yeah, I'll grow up to be just like you

I want to tell you
Why would I try to
You are all that I can see now
Why0would I try to

And I want to tell you
Why wOuld I try to
You are all I can see now
I know I'll trx to

I have to learn, have to try, I have to trust I had to cry
I have to see have to know that I can be myself

And if I could I would stay
And if they're not, not in the way
i'll stare in the distance
But i'll grov up to be just like you-
I'll grow up to be just like you
Like you

    General CommentMy fave krezip song and one of my fave songs in general.It's about taking chances and the fear of starting a new life.She's so scared of it...and where it'll lead her.But she must try and she must take chances because that's life.

    General Commentto me this song is just about growing up, starting something new in your life.
    I'd say it's really the sort of song everyone can relate to, cause obviously everyone will someday go through a fase where you're experiencing something totally new and you're afraid of what's going to happen in the future.. but as the song says you'll just ''have to learn, have to try''
