Steel Cannot Bend

Some of those days
You might feel so broken inside
Like you’re always the one
That has to go run and hide

People try to tear you down
Cause another crack full of doubt
You try to stand your ground
But you’re too scared to scream and shout

But the hammer that they use
Is the same that forges steel
And you’ve gotta stand up to them
Cause no one else will

And this steel cannot bend

So you’ve gotta turn the tables
Turn that pain into strength
You’ll find your will’s much stronger
Cause this steel cannot bend

When your drive fuels the fire
That’s hiding deep inside of you
You will find yourself unbreakable
No matter what you’re put through

Cause the hammer that they use
Is the same that forges steel
And you’ve gotta stand up to them
Cause no one else will

And this steel cannot bend

So it’s time to shift that power
To strengthen what they tried to break
They’ll learn what they tried to do
Will be the their last mistake

Cause the hammer that they use
Is the same that forges steel
And you’ve gotta stand up to them
Cause no one else will
But you

And this steel will not bend

Anymore

Buried beneath the Snow

Another night in december
Everything covered in ice
So much to reminisce about
Has the year been naughty or nice

So many memories were made
Some people go and others stay
So I sit here and reflect upon
What has lead me here today

But as I look out at the snow
Reminded of all that things buried below
I remind myself the year will be over soon
And sometimes the past is better gone
so let’s move on

You can spend your whole life
Just trying to find a way to clear the way
But sometimes it’s best to carry on
Till the new year washes it all away

Cause the year will be over soon
And sometimes the past is better gone
so let’s move on

The new year is a new beginning
A chance for us to start anew
So let’s enjoy this winter wonderland
And bury everything we been through

Cause the year will be over soon
And sometimes the past is better gone
so let’s move on

Fly Away

For so long i’ve had my life planned out
Every path was written down
I’ve never been good with suprises
My control kept me tightly wound

Then you came in and knocked me off my feet
I’ve never felt like this before
Who am I when you’re around me
I thought control was something i’d fight for

But you make me want to get up and fly away
To where ever life might take us
Who knew how free your love could make me feel
When losing control used to be tough

Why was I always so tighly wound
Why was I so afraid to just let go
When there’s so much out in this world
So many things i’ve yet to know

It’s funny how much my life could change
And how much i’m not scared that it might
I’ve always thought I had everything planned
Till you proved that wasn’t right

But you make me want to get up and fly away
To where ever life might take us
Who knew how free your love could make me feel
When losing control used to be tough

I never thought I could be like this
Living life without the chains
But I’ve come to learn just how much
Happiness remains

When you learn to live day by day
Without anything planned out
Then you finally get the chance to see
What living’s all about

I’m so ready to get up and fly away
To wherever life might take us
Who knew how free your love could make me feel
When losing control used to be tough

So let’s get away
Let’s fly away
We’ll be back someday

Before You Say Goodbye

So many miles have come between us
Feels like time just stands still
Because when i’m not with you
Life feels like an impassable hill

Wishing you were here with me
Or at least time would start again
Wishing my heart didn’t feel empty
Wishing it could beat again

My friends always tell me how
You’ve gotta be ready for the change
But no matter how hard you prepare
You’re life will never be the same

People will always come and go
You can’t help it so don’t even try
Just cherish all the time you have
Before you have to say goodbye

Not Like the Movie

I’ve seen my share of movies
And I’ve heard my share of songs
But I don’t want to live my own life
Like a movie or a song

Those stories might seem truthful
Like they can happen to anyone
But nothing ever happens like that
After all is said and done

We can get so lost in the fantasies
In the same ole cliche
Waste our life trying to figure out
Which role we’re born to play

Am I still the leading role
Is the question we always ask
Will I ever find love
Or happiness that lasts

But we have to realize
No matter what we think
Our life could change so fast
In one sudden blink

We can get so lost in the fantasies
In the same ole cliche
Waste our life trying to figure out
Which role we’re born to play

But our role is never constant
That’s one thing we have to know
You have to be ready for
Where your life might go

Cause unlike all the stories
That you might watch or hear
The change is coming fast
No matter how strong you fear

We need to get past all the fantasies
Step away from the cliche
So we can learn how to figure out
Who we might be today

Waiting for the Push

For as long as I can remember
I kept wondering why
Why i’d never try my best
To reach for the stars

Some people are living
Just living out their dreams
But here I am waiting
Waiting for fate to intervene

I’m just waiting for that push
For something to break me free
Only then will I find out
What’s been inside of me

But I waste so much of my life
Waiting on the sideline
When they have so much hidden
What am I scared to find

What’s got me so scared to look
To see what I can really do
Sometimes I think my biggest fear
Is the possibility of breaking through

I’m just waiting for that push
For something to break me free
Only then will I find out
What’s been inside of me

But sometimes we find the answer
In places we never knew
Like how we’re the one that needs to push
To figure out what we can do

Once we find we had the power
To break our own chains
Then we’ll find that destiny
Is all that remains

I’m been waiting for that push
Who knew i’d be the one to break free
Now it’s time for me to find out
What’s been hiding inside of me
All along

The Strangers I’ll Never Know

I was sitting in a diner
Just finishing up my meal
I go and pay the waitress
Then head back behind the wheel

As i’m driving down this old dirt road
Listening to the radio in my truck
I think about the past few weeks
And how i’m running out of luck

Then not too far along the way
I noticed my tire’s going flat
And my gas was hitting empty soon
Can things get any worst than that?

But then I start to wonder
About all the people I don’t know
There’s so many people barely getting by
While this just one tiny blow

So I made my way to the next town
I couldn’t wait to fill up on gas
Wishing that this nagging feeling
Would soon hurry up and pass

I have this feeling deep inside of me
Like something’s just not right
But I’m holding back that darkness
By clutching to the last glimmer of light

But then I start to wonder
About all the people I don’t know
There’s so many people barely getting by
While this just one tiny blow

Then I pass this family in the town
And they look so frail and so weak
I could tell by the look in their eyes
That their future was looking bleak

I’m finally ready to head on out
Now that my tank was finally full
But I can’t help think about what I saw
Maybe my life isn’t so cruel

I try to think about that family
And to never let it go
Cause my life is never as bad as
The strangers i’ll never know
