Don’t ever hold me to expectations of the past, you see, or explanation of my past beliefs / Even if you'll never take it / Forget the last time / To explain what's gone through my mind / I know I'll have to trust / I’ll put it past for us even if I have to fake it / You know you're never gonna see me fall / I won't lose it all for you / I’ll never get another chance to lose / And I know it might be hard to see / It’s truly killing me / To be something I might not be cut out to be, but it's something that I'll have to prove / So trust in me, don’t walk away / Cause we are better off this way / I see the fear in your eyes / Our past won’t die / So you can think you throw it all behind / To leave a mark on everything / Like scars left carved in the skin / This is my revival / I’ll never give you the chance to make me think I’ll fear the rest / I've seen a brand new side of me glance back from the mirror / And now I know the chance might not get any clearer / Or hear a new voice warning me the path to stay clear of / I’m near the edge / The dim lit dawn of our new era / And when I ask myself why / Do I even try? / I realize my dreams are still clearly in sight / And I won’t be the reason why that this will die / I’ll still be here / The last one standing every time / Now you all hear me / This isn’t over you’ll see / I’m just a lost soul, clouded mind when I lose control / I’ll never be the leader they expect me to be / Will I be free to choose for me, how I come to be? / This is my one chance, no second glance / It’ll be too far for me to ever see / There’s no looking back / Feels like a full blown attack / Shot down hopes / You think you knew all from day one / Acting like we’ll all go the same way / Cause they say you know you’re never gonna make it / I’ve felt it for the hundredth time / No reason why I’d lose my mind over countless lies / For I am no longer caught up in the webs we’ve weaved / Retracing our steps to find the unseen / Emergence, I come to be / You have everything that is left of me //
