lyrics

I can see it in your eyes that you don't want to know,
You want to hold onto what you've got and never let it go.
But you might be great at something that you never thought you would be.

You got to leave what you're used to,
to figure out what you were meant to do.
I don't want you to fail or want you to fall,
But you've got to crawl.

It's like you're scared to get out and find what else it is you might love,
You refuse to break out of that box that your childhood had built up.
You don't really know yourself until you spend some long nights alone.
You've got to get out there and figure out how to build your own home.

I can tell you first hand it's hard to take your hands off that wheel,
But you've gotta understand to shut off the inhibition you feel.
Ain't no one gonna do it for you,
The first step you take is all your own.

Half the time it's taken alone,
And to fight it is like getting water from a stone.
That's why there's such thing as brave.
That's how soul is grown, I know.

It's like you're scared to get out and find what else it is you might love,
You refuse to break out of that box that your childhood had built up.
You don't really know yourself until you spend some long nights alone.
You've got to get out there and figure out how to build your own home.

Maybe it's the life you lived.
Maybe it's the ground you ran on.
Maybe it's the heart you brought home to your mama.
Maybe it's a hard turn around.
And it might have been a long way down,
But I promise you it's all written for reason.

It's like you're scared to get out and find what else it is you might love,
You refuse to break out of that box that your childhood had built up.
You don't really know yourself until you spend some long nights alone.
You've got to get out there and figure out how to build your own home.

Home.
Home.
Home.
