I never want to say
That I never did try
'Cause I'm afraid I wouldn't get by
I never want to say
That I never did live
'Cause I'm afraid of what I couldn't give

Every day seems a little busier
than the one that came before
Even now I'm a little older
and asking what's in store

I don't the know the future
and I don't care to know
I just don't want to be left
putting on an empty show

I never want to say
That I never did hope
'Cause I'm afraid of a hopeless cause
I never want to say
That I never did help
'Cause I'm afraid of helplessness

Every day could seem a little brighter
If I could manage to to follow the light
Every day could seem a little longer
If only I wouldn't fall away

Every moment we give to something we hate
Is a moment we've thrown away
Every single little step that I take
Is something I can never get back
