Take The Risk (In My Eyes)

Who's to say that your mind won't change Yesterday's excuses just aren't relevant today It may take time it may take a strong will But we don't have to swallow such a bitter pill Better to have tried Better to have learned Better to take that risk Than let this world wear you down Half our time's spent wishing for something else The other half lost in a breath The standards I set were always for myself Sorry if you thought they applied to anyone else I always promised I'd try my best I can't stand to see you waste what's in yourself And now I'm asking Are you happy with second best It's so contrived and disappointing To see you complacent like all the rest
