The test begins now

I thought I was smart, I thought I was right
I thought it better not to fight
I thought there was a virtue in always being cool

So it came time to fight, I thought Ill just step aside
And that the time would prove you wrong
And that you would be the fool

I dont know where the sunbeams end
And that the starlights begin
Its all a mystery

Oh, to fight is to defend
If its not now then tell me when would be the time
That you would stand up and be a man

For to lose I could accept
But to surrender I just wept
And regretted this moment, oh that I, I was the fool

I dont know where the sunbeams end
And that the starlights begin
Its all a mystery

And I dont know how a man decides
Whats right for his own life
Its all a mystery

Cause Im a man, not a boy
And there are things you cant avoid
You have to face them when youre not prepared to face them

If I could, I would
But youre with him, Id do no good
I should have fought him but instead I let him, I let him take you

I dont know where the sunbeams end
And that the starlights begin
Its all a mystery

And I dont know how a man decides
Whats right for his own life
Its all a mystery

I dont know where the sunbeams end
And that the starlights begin
Its all a mystery

And I dont know how a man decides
Whats right for his own life
Its all a mystery

I dont know where the sunbeams end
And that the starlights begin
Its all a mystery
Mystery

The test is over now
