Hold on, its not strong enough to break you
Stay strong, this pain can only shape you
Remember when you were young, take on anything so fearless
Now you're old, those days are gone, the fight inside your head so vicious

Do you want to breathe?
I can set you free
You can count on me
Baby you can count on me

Let go of what you've lost
You've got to take hold of what you want
Keep moving forward, get off your knees
The game ain't over and we're playing for keeps

This pressure is never ending
Try not to break but always bending
My head cant take no more
Need the release I'm dying for
Resolute we stand and conquer demons
This worthless coal turn into diamonds

Be careful with these games you play
Don't gamble your life away
Two steps forward, one step back
Trust in me and stay on track
