The Jump

It’s almost to the time I’ve been waiting for all my life

I’ve known since I was one I’d get it right

When the pathway isn’t clear you gottapersevere

And keep a thousand road blocks in the mirror

 

Take it slow but don’t wait

It won’t come down to fate

 

So I’ll take it and I’ll win it

If it’s paused then I’ll begin it

I’ll mold it and I’ll spin it 

I’ll push it to the limit

I’ll close it in a locket

And hide it in my pocket

Then spring up like a rocket and nail the jump 

 

They tried to count me out, tried to fill my head with doubt

Didn’t think I’d have the guts to pull it out

But I won’t be so deterred; I’ll have the final word

Cause the story can’t be done till I’ve been heard

 

Tear it all to pieces

And cast them up in light

Then wash away the fire

And see what’s left behind

I’m gonna blow their fucking minds

Now it’s almost time

 

To take it and to win it

If it’s paused then I’ll begin it

I’ll mold it and I’ll spin it 

I’ll push it to the limit

I’ll close it in a locket

And hide it in my pocket

Then spring up like a rocket and nail the jump 

I’ll nail the jump
