lyrics

I used to hold my guard up
Afraid to stumble and drop
One day I feel like I have it all
The next I’m with my back against the wall

I’ll slam the hammer against these walls
Drag bad memories down the hall
Time to let go of the broken past
So done with always looking back
And no matter what the future holds
I’ll be ready for it -- when it unfolds

So fire all your cheap shots
I will blow away the smoke
When life takes another swing at me
You won’t see me choke
I know that sometimes it’s alright to pretend
But when I’m on the brink (when I'm on the brink)
I refuse to sink

This blame game went on for too long
And all I ever did was wrong
Time to believe in my own mistakes
I will bend but I’ll never break
I don’t care ‘bout what you have to say
I won’t listen to it -- anyway

So fire all your cheap shots
I will blow away the smoke
When life takes another swing at me
You won’t see me choke
I know that sometimes it’s alright to pretend
But when I’m on the brink (when I'm on the brink)
I refuse to sink

Oh for so long
This felt so wrong
You’ve been the anchor holding my head under the water
This isn’t me
Time to break free
I’ll sail my own course, even if it’s bound for disaster

So fire all your cheap shots
I will blow away the smoke
When life takes another swing at me
You won’t see me choke
I know that sometimes it’s alright to pretend
But when I’m on the brink (when I'm on the brink)
I refuse to sink
