lyrics

Turn This Ship Around

I opened my eyes
The truth came down
I can’t stand still while the earth spins around.
I need to make a change
God only knows
Why I’m so terrified that I can’t let go
Life’s too short
And you’re so pretty
We don’t have to die to go to kingdom city
Some people say you do
But that’s cause they’re insane
They’re painting by the numbers
Their songs all sound the same

We can turn this ship around
It won’t be easy
Fear is the enemy
Faith is gonna set us free
Repeat our history
Or shape our destiny
We can turn this ship around
But it won’t be easy

You woke me from a nightmare
When you shook me awake
I gotta make my own luck
Create my own breaks
Where cynics call the shots
And dreamers look like fools
We gotta leave it all behind
Re-define what’s cool
Cause I’m so tired of being so afraid
of how dumb I’m gonna look if I don’t make the grade
Well I might eat humble pie
Or I might touch the sky
But dreams won’t fly
If I don’t even try

We can turn this ship around
It won’t be easy
Fear is the enemy
Faith is gonna set us free
Repeat our history
Or shape our destiny
We can turn this ship around
But it won’t be easy

But you already know
We die if we don’t grow
But you already know

I’m gonna rise up early
Get down to work
And put the boat in the water
Wash off the dirt
Aim by the stars
With the wind in my sails
And I ain’t gonna quit
So I’m not gonna fail

We can turn this ship around
It won’t be easy
Fear is the enemy
Faith is gonna set us free
Repeat our history
Or shape our destiny
We can turn this ship around
(X 2)
But it won’t be easy

I opened my eyes
The truth came down
I can’t stand still
While the earth spins around
