Lyrics: This past year I've been thinking
That I might just throw the towel in
But I know that there is better yet to come

This past year I've been drowning
In my own worries and doubting
But it's time for me to breathe and just move on

It feels like two steps back
For every one forward
But I won't look back
I'll keep moving towards the sun

Feels like I'm stuck in place
Keep spinning in circles
But I will put my faith
In all of these words that I've sung

This past year I've been planning
All these big ideas and when they all fall through
That's when I panic and get scared

This past year I've been running
From my demons but I'm done with
Being concerned about
Who does and doesn't care


I'm sick of wasting time
Hiding behind these excuses
So I am shedding my
Fears and my pride cause they're useless
I'll give it one last try,
Even though it feels like


But I will put my faith in all of these
Words that I've sung
