Make Your Mark

When I was young
I thought that everyone could change the world
Seem so far off now
We’re all just faces in the crowd
I’ve all this Inspiration
But a lack of motivation
If I don’t get up now then
I’ve already lost

I won’t wait, for a second chance
Now’s a better time than any to
stand up, throw away those doubts
that are just holding you back
Please don’t say, that you’re giving up
Nothing worthwhile came easy
And inside I know you have the strength
To take that leap of faith and follow your mind

But it’s harder than it seems
Counting the days I’m chasing dreams
As my calendar flips over and over
You said I can be better than this
Gotta try or I’ll just fail I guess
Hope one day that I can truly
Make a difference

I won’t wait, for a another chance
Now’s a better time than any to
Stand up, throw away those fears
That are holding you down
Please don’t let, yourself have regrets
Or dwell on times long gone because
This moment is what matters now
Just keep your eyes ahead and follow your mind

We’re all just one in 7 billion
Trying to get somebody else to listen
We’re all just one in 7 billion
Trying to get the whole world to, pay attention

And I’ll say, there’s no greater chance
Live for just this moment and
Wake up, find and chase your dreams
No one’s holding you back
Promise me, you’ll remember always
Life is short, a privilege
And you only get, a single chance
To make your mark and follow your mind
