lyrics

I can’t keep up with all this passing time
Days are over faster than I’d like lately
I’m scared of all the things I haven’t seen
This feelings just a symptom of the state I’m in these days

It’s ok to want answers; it’s ok to be afraid
It’s ok; it’s ok
But don’t you waste another second til it’s over
Make the most of every chance you get
And every now and then just take a little moment
And stop to breathe

I think I hesitate at playing games ‘cause
Everytime I try, I find the rules have changed on me
I’d like to think that this is worth the risk
That this could make me feel the happiest I’ve ever been

It’s ok to want answers; it’s ok to be afraid
It’s ok; it’s ok
But don’t you waste a second til it’s over
Make the most of every chance you get
And every now and then just take a little moment
And stop to breathe

If time takes everything
Then hold on to what you love with both hands
Because what you love means everything
So just hold on; hold on; yeah

It’s ok to want answers; it’s ok to be afraid
It’s ok; it’s ok
But don’t you waste a second til it’s over
Make the most of every chance you get
And every now and then just take a little moment
And stop to breathe
But don’t you waste a second til it’s over
Make the most of every chance you get
And every now and then just take a little moment
And stop to breathe
