When you're young, you get sad
I heard Ryan sing tonight
Singing now with every word
Trying how to next escape the dull life

I ain't done being sad
I am changing with time
Tell me the world is bad
Is it better if you close your eyes

Then close your eyes

Finding out long overdue
A giver
Finding out true for me too
A giver

I've got a secret
Harder to live than to find
Happiness stays not with
Those who take from them but those who are kind

Stormy nights
It calms me like a lullaby child
Walking through this life
I guard it with a secret smile

Finding out long overdue
A giver
Finding out true for me too
A giver
