lyrics

I believe everybody has a dream
That nine times out of ten presents some trouble in following
But you’ve got to do what makes you feel right
I understand sacrifice
Just know it can be a nightmare on the other side

I agree everyone’s got a hand in their destiny
Though nine times out of ten what you think you want isn’t what you need
But you’re going to go and give it a try
Maybe I do have a fear of heights
Just know you’ll tear up the ground if you take flight

See you’ve got roots for a reason
So why do you want to sail with the wind?

If you get what you want tell me what will be the price?
Is it worth it to abandon all the love you have in your life?
Under bright lights, there’s still cold nights, success won’t warm your skin
If you get what you want will it be worth it in the end?

Can’t you see what all of this is doing to me?
And not just me, you’re tearing up this family
You seethe “I’m gonna be what I’m gonna be”
You know I used to want to be wild and free
But honey I got back my grip on reality

See we’ve got roots for a reason
So we don’t get swept away with the wind

If you get what you want tell me what will be the price?
Is it worth it to abandon all the love you have in your life?
Under bright lights, there’s still cold nights, success won’t warm your skin
If you get what you want will it be worth it in the end?

You said that roots were constricting
And that hot wind was breathing

If you get what you want I hope it’s worth the price
Of cutting off the ropes that hold the love you have in your life
Under bright lights, there’s still cold nights, sometimes in winning you don’t win
If you get what you want I hope it’s worth it in the end
