New Plateau

from by Shapes & Colors

lyrics

I just found out that I'm strong enough
To get up and walk away
The boy that you knew is not here today,
He's sorting out the mess he's made

And the only way out --
Through the tears and the doubt --
Is a road paved with loss and pain
So if I ever come around,
when I finally hit the ground
You'll know it when you hear the sound

Why do you stand in the line of fire
When you know it burns?
Why are you dreaming of a finish line
When there's much to learn --
So much left to learn?
You're giving it all away
For somebody else to know your pain,
But don't let go

You helped me back onto my feet
I let my failures swallow everything
Now there's no one to hold,
I'm on my own
Finding my way back home
And if I make it alone to a new plateau
Maybe you'll get why I had to go
'Cuz despite what I did
And all that was said,
It's better this way in the end
'Cuz all you ever do is weigh me down

Why do you stand in the line of fire
When you know it burns?
Why are you dreaming of a finish line
When there's much to learn --
So much left to learn?
You're giving it all away
For somebody else to know your pain,
But don't let go

You are much more than you think you are
You're stronger than you say you are
Even when you fall apart

But don't let go
