  • It's Everest, I know
    "It's impossible, you're too young, or too old"
    That's what they tell you, mm
    So that's what you tell you, too
    So the light, it fades
    When you figure out the rules, they change
    When you touch it in your hands, it's sand
    Slippin' through, but the truth is

    Everybody says that you can't 'til you do
    Standin' there starin' at the mirror in the room
    Tell yourself, "One more day, one more day, one more shot" (hang on)
    The voices in the night, in your head, yeah they'll beg you to quit
    And they'll tell you that it's hard 'cause it is
    But you can do anything, anything you want to
    There's footprints on the moon

    Your knees, they'll shake
    You're gonna wanna stay home, don't stay
    The more your heart wants it, mm
    The harder it'll break, yeah

    Everybody says that you can't 'til you do
    Standin' there starin' at the mirror in the room
    Tell yourself, "One more day, one more day, one more shot" (hang on)
    The voices in the night, in your head, yeah they'll beg you to quit
    And they'll tell you that it's hard 'cause it is
    But you can do anything, anything you want to
    There's footprints on the moon
    There's footprints on the moon

    Some days you're gonna win
    Some days you're gonna be this close
    Some days you wanna give up
    But hang on

    Everybody says that you can't 'til you do
    Standin' there starin' at the mirror in the room
    Tell yourself, "One more day, one more day, one more shot"
    The voices in the night, in your head, yeah they'll beg you to quit
    And they'll tell you that it's hard 'cause it is
    But you can do anything, anything you want to
    There's footprints on the moon
