lyrics

Sometimes, I hear my fear crying
louder than usual, and I feel so small
these times, I’m tired of trying
in doubts I am drowning,
and it gets so hard to trust myself

and I, I want to feel nothing
be immune to the buzzing, from all the noise
And right, when everything’s crashing
I feel my heart beating
and I remember why I breathe

Sometimes,
it’s okay to be weak
We’re all human, we all know this
What matters is your will to get back up
To be resilient, and keep living

You gotta fight for who you want to be
Hold on, it’s not easy, believe me
Oh

But if you keep on
it won’t matter in the end how
many battles have been lost
cause we fought; and that’s how the war is won

I know, it’s just for the moment
my judgment is clouded, in the eye of the storm
and though, I may have fallen
I’ll gather my strength and
know that tomorrow I’ll rise again

‘cause
it’s okay to be weak
We’re all human, we all know this
What matters is your will to get back up
To be resilient, and keep living

You gotta fight for who you want to be
Hold on, it’s not easy, believe me
Oh

But if you keep on
it won’t matter in the end how
many battles have been lost
cause we fought; and that’s how the war is won
