Lyrics: VERSE 1
4th and goal
Final play
The ball was in my hands
With a chance to win state
I overthrew my man
Fell to my knees, head in my hands
But I’ll never forget
The next words that coach said

This is gonna make you stronger
Make you work a little bit harder
Today will make you better
For the rest of your life
Make your skin a little thicker
Your heart a little bigger
You can lose the game
Or lose your direction
But don’t lose the lesson

A borrowed suit
A nervous smile
My first job interview
Then I waited for a while
He walked back in
Said there’s one who
Is just a better fit than you
And it hurts right now
But I know somehow


Now looking back one thing I’ve learned
Is we all crash and we all burn
But every fall from grace is a second chance
So I hope you understand
