The Risk

They say if you never jump

You'll never know if you fly

Well I prayed to Peter Pan to come take me away

But he never showed at my window

 

So I ask you now...

 

What is risk without a fall?

Tell me, when you gambled it all did you

Run off the edge, or cautiously go?

Does it even matter? Because either way

The ground was so much harder than I thought it would be

 

My wings made of wax were just that - 

An illusion

Because even though we reach for the sun,

In the end,

It only becomes what destroys us

 

And lemme tell you now,

I didn't fly,

I didn't soar

So can you really blame me if I say

I won't risk it no more?
