  • I didn't think I'd get back up
    I didn't think I'd be alright again
    You know it's easy when you're young, bounce back and whatever
    I just bounce back like it never happened

    And you'll probably never realize
    Or never even know
    But when you let me talk for hours and hours like forever
    And after that, yeah, I let you hold me close

    Oh, it felt like I put one foot in front of the other today
    I stretched my arms out wide and it felt real strange
    And then my legs, they started shaking
    And my hands, they started quaking
    'Cause things just take longer to heal these days

    But I'm coming for you, babe
    It takes a minute, yeah
    But wait, I'm nearly at your pace
    Oh yeah, I'm coming for you, babe

    I didn't think I'd get back up again, yeah
    I didn't think I'd be okay
    'Cause you know it's easy when you're young, bounce back and whatever
    You just bounce back like it never happened

    Oh-oh-oh, and you'll probably never realize
    Or ever even know
    When you let me talk for hours
    And I let you hold me close

    I put one foot in front of the other today
    I stretched my arms out wide and it felt real strange
    And then my legs, they started shaking
    And my hands, they started quaking
    'Cause things just take longer to heal these days

    So I put one foot in front of the other today
    I stretched my arms out wide and it felt real strange
    And then my legs, they started shaking
    And my hands, they started quaking
    'Cause things just take longer to heal these days

    Oh-oh, but I'm coming for you, babe
    Oh, it takes a minute, yeah
    Oh, but wait, I'm nearly at your pace
    Oh yeah, I'm coming for you, yeah, yeah, yeah

    'Cause oh, yeah, I put one foot in front of the other today
    I stretched my arms out wide and it felt real strange
    And then my legs, they started shaking
    And my hands, they started quaking
    'Cause things just take longer to heal these days

    Oh, but I swear I'm coming for you, yeah
    Oh-oh, oh, it takes a minute, yeah
    Oh, but wait, I'm nearly at your pace (yeah, I'm nearly at your pace)
    Oh yeah, I'm coming for you, babe
