You know, before I sleep I lock every door
There are things that people want from me
And I think you should know

I'll give you all you need
To be the greatest man to ever sing a song
Or write a tune that can change how people think
Oh, it's true

So, listen close to me
Don't forget a story
My mistakes will help you one day
Because when you're on top you're just alone and afraid

I was about your age when the magic came to me
With birds whistling in the forest
My parents used their words to make a livelihood with work
And we kept it contained within our home

On my 13th birthday I got my first guitar
I played until my hands bled
And I started writing all these songs
I didn't know what I was doing
I know there isn't much for you to say
But I will save you from these things
That put my talents to waste

When I learned to sing I gave up what a normal child would do
I wanted to move the world
And believe you me
It takes more than a day for you to reap the reward
It takes discipline

And it takes time
And it takes the courage to face your fears
And it takes might
And it takes the strength to change yourself
