lyrics

It’s a story to remember in time,
To y’all that bleed, y’all that burn,
I’ll take a forward truth
To a final jump.
Honey, look ahead!
You will see me in the fog,
Shaking hands
With Uncle Sam.
Read my fortune in these eyes,
‘Cause blind eyes tell no lies.
(I pay no mind)
To those who talk but never act,
(To you, poor souls)
Who always watch their backs!
You all just stand and wonder,
If someone has to cross it first,
So be it: I’ll be this one
(I’ll be this one!)
And the wind will hold me up.
I had a good run up,
The air, the sea, they all shout out:
“You can’t be runner up”
(What lies ahead, no one can tell!)
When I’m facing West,
(What lies ahead, no one can tell!)
it appears clear to me,
(What lies ahead, no one can tell!)
That where the sun is up,
(What lies ahead, no one can tell!)
Seems always easier to see!
I should have stared and listened,
But someone had to try it once,
I did it, no matter what.
(No matter what!)
But the wind pushes back.
I had a good run up.
Now, deep in the sea,
My white wings fade to blue.
I pay no mind! I pay no mind!
I pay no mind to those who talk but never act!
For the glory, for the pride,
I broke my arms, they lost my sight.
No one’s stronger than nature,
Even a willing heart.
My words won’t come out right
To tell the joy we shared one time.
All I can say now that the sun goes down
Is that it was worth it a thousand time.
