lyrics

This is the story of a boy and girl who fell so hard and fast.

Hey there, I think I recognize you from the line outside that Fall Out Boy show in Atlanta four years or so ago.
I thought they said believers never die, but desperation's in your eyes,
And you don't look so happy with the way that things turned out.

(But you can't let them drag you down, though half the world will try.
And if you're one of them, then I've got 7 billion better ways to waste my time.)

[This is the story of a boy and girl,
Who fell so hard and fast,
That they couldn't help but find themselves inside the pages of the greatest story ever told.
Cut my hair and cut my ties.
(Would I be any better off or just a martyr for your cause?)
Fall on swords to end our lives.
(And send us straight to Hell, might as well)
Tell me how to live my life.
(No matter what, you'll never bring me down.)]

And they all got plastered on the 21st, hoping that the world would end, so they wouldn't have to wake up.
Meanwhile, I sat in my bedroom alone, praying just to see another day, so I would finally have the chance to sing this song.

[chorus]

This is my time, this is my time to shine.

I lose a little faith every time a child says "I can't live my dream. I'll compromise my destiny, I'm throwing in the towel." When never becomes now, what will they say? When they realize they've thrown it all away. (have faith)"We might be the ones, we're changing everything."
"Anything is possible. Don't count us out."
