  • I'll never forget when we started out
    The beat of the drum
    A face in the crowd
    It's better this way, it's better this way
    How far we've come, now not a soul can change
    Remember the road running under our feet
    We'd shoot for the stars but we'd aim at the trees
    It's better this way, it's better this way
    Gambling with life, it was our turn to play
    It's time, only when you look forward can you see behind
    We bought the ticket so we'll take the ride

    Every trial and every test
    We'd drive to the east and we'd fly to the west
    Just running away, just running away
    We can't be different cause they're all the same
    Every night that we'd ever start, and every beat of every heart
    Is running away, just running away
    Catching our breath at the end we could say
    It's time, only when you look forward could you see behind
    Every taste we could get was just sweet sublime
    Holding onto the moment we let go of life
    We bought the ticket so we'll take the ride
    Day after day in the light
    We're glowing in the dark
    Standing was the sketch
    Where falling wasn't hard
    We lost ourselves to find our somewhere down the line this time

    Day after day in the light
    We're glowing in the dark
    Standing was the sketch
    Where falling wasn't hard
    We lost ourselves to find our somewhere down the line this time
    For some it's a god, for me it's a fact
    We'd make a mistake and try to take 'em all back
    It's better this way, it's better this way
    Out of the grind and then into the grave
    It's time, it's time, only when you look forward could you see behind
    Every taste we could get was just sweet sublime
    Holding onto the moment we let go of life
    We bought the ticket so we'll take the ride
    We bought the ticket so we'll take the ride Writer/s: NICK WHEELER, TYSON RITTER
