We were meant for more than this.
Have we lost sight of the big picture?
We were meant for glory, for joy.
But all I can hear is your complaining mouth.
IF we could be more than this, would you want us to be?
Would you jump at the chance?
What would you do if I told you what you’ve been waiting for is already gone?
The one chance you had, passed before your face, but your eyes were closed.
If you would open your eyes, and let the sight fill your head, would it be any better?
Would you be any better than you already are?
You could be more, and you should be more.
What are you waiting for?
The something that is telling you to go, the thing that is pushing you,
It is not what you think it is.
We are not what we could be, and you are worrying about the past.
If you want it, come and get it; for it is waiting for us
Don’t wish it was over, because it has only just begun.
Our lives are not meant for hoping or wishing,
Our lives are meant for getting and doing.
Get up! Why are you lying there, like your heart has been torn out?
The floor has nothing to offer you, there is nothing there.
Come be what you’ve always wanted, there is no line to be crossed.
And as you jump, when you are freefalling, think of what you are.
This is your life; but is it your life?
Be what you are, but never be what you aren’t.
Be what you might be, but not what you can’t ever be.
Welcome to your life, better get started.
Everyone’s here to see you fly, you’d better move your wings.
This is it; I’m daring you to move.
Where will the strength come from? I don't see anyone.
Where are you gonna go from here?
Let’s go, just me and you.
