When you're tired and it just won't stop. The day's expired and it just won't stop. Trying hard to keep from falling. Looking down I see you're crawling. What we do to keep our heart from breaking, to keep our hope from shaking.
We all get lost when we give up our sight. With nothing left, we give up the fight. But you can choose what you're eyes see, and you can choose who you want to be. 'Cause it's all good so far, embrace it with all that you are.
CHORUS: 'Cause when your eyes fail, then your heart fails, and your hope fails. 'Cause you let your sight fail. When you see nothing there to keep it real. You tell yourself it will never end. You live into your made-up lies. Just take it in and look again.
Don't give up when the day don't stop. 'Cause there'll be days when it just won't stop. Just do what you do to keep your eyes from crying. Oh baby, it's all in teh trying, to keep your will from shaking, to keep your heart from breaking.
And you know the only thing that stops you are your own made-up stories that they tell you. Every day your life is new, what you live is true.
So when your eyes fail, don't let your heart fail, or let your hope fail 'cause you let your sight fail. When you see nothing there to keep it real, don't tell yourself it will never end. Don't live into your made-up life, just take it in and look again. Baby look again. Ain't it good enough?
