Carpe Diem

  • I've thrown away all of my outside distractions
    I'm diving headfirst to chase a dream that I won't let go

    It's worthless, a waste of time
    This goal is out of reach,
    you better fall back in line

    This is what I need
    You are what I need
    I need motivation to prove you
    Wrong, and I will prove you wrong

    What makes you think that you are different?
    How can you chase these dreams?
    They've become a chore
    I know I'm close, I'm almost there
    Just a little more, and I will prevail
    Through what you call ignorance
    I will prevail

    Now I've chased this dream to do what I love
    and I wouldn't trade it for a thing
    Now I've chased this dream, and I made it out alive
    I wouldn't trade it for a thing
    I threw away what naysayers say,
    and started on a race that I had to win
    For myself

    And you proved me wrong, you proved me wrong
    All I've learned is teaching me more
    All I know is driving me on Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
