You’re starting over.
It’s no use feeling sorry.
And I know it’s fucked.
But it is what it is. It is what it is.
Now pull yourself up.
Don’t say you can’t. Because you can. You can.
We both know it’s not all lost.
And we both know it’s not too late.
Prove to me that this means something.
Prove to me you’re worth the wait.
You won’t get everything you want, but you can try.
You’ve got to keep moving for time and tide.
No one’s gonna make this work but you.
I’ll drag you if I have to.
