Lyrics

Don’t let life get you down
Don’t let them stand in your way
Cuz you made a promise to yourself
And now you lead the way

It always starts out as nothin’ but a dream
Just a thought maybe something you could try to touch
It’s alright to struggle when the times are tough
Even if your arm doesn’t reach far enough
And we all have those times when life won’t budge
We accelerate through them not get caught in the mudd
And struggles will come and struggles will go
They’re like seasons of wither when it’s blistering cold

Don’t let life get you down
Don’t let them stand in your way
Cuz you made a promise to yourself
And now you lead the way

When you get knocked down you gotta get back up
Dust yourself off and try to look tough
You might get some stars; you might get some scars
But in the end it’s not about the glory it’s the cause
There’s things in your life that you probably regret
It’s too bad that it happened, but it’s worse to forget
If you forget about it now and start on a blank slate
You’ll forget all those lessons so you’re bound to repeat

Don’t let life get you down
Don’t let them stand in your way
Cuz you made a promise to yourself
And now you lead the way
I said don’t let life get you down
Don’t let them stand in your way
Cuz you made a promise to yourself
And now you lead the way

We all have a purpose, we all have a reason
And we don’t know what it is, but it’s easy to believe in
When you find your calling you’ll know it’s for you
Cuz it’ll be ALL YOU WANNA DO!

Don’t let life get you down
Don’t let them stand in your way
Cuz you made a promise to yourself
And now you lead the way
