It's The Only One You've Got (AOL Sessions)

How do you know where you're going
When you don't know where you've been?
You hide the shame that you're not showing and you won't let anyone in
A crowded street can be a quiet place when you're walking alone

And now you think that you're the only one
Who doesn't have to try and you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fight then I guess you never will

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now, they tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given like it's the only you've got

Memories have left you broken and the scars have never healed
The emptiness in you is growing with so little left to feel
You're scared to look back on the days before
You're too tired to move on

And now you think that you're the only one
Who doesn't have to try and you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fly then I guess you never will

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now, they tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given like it's the only you've got

Oh, what will it take, oh to get you to say that I'll try?
And what would you say if this was the last day of your life?

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now, they tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given like it's the only you've got

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now, they tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given like it's the only you've got
