Affirmation

Verse 1

He’s gone
In and out of his head again
And he’s wrong
Thinking I’ll abandon him

I don’t
Know how to get through to him
But this song
Might help him understand

Pre-Chorus

Cause he
He only hears in melodies
And I pray
I pray he’ll sing along

Chorus

You try too hard to be perfect
And it gets in the way
Of the things that you want to
Do and to say

But does it really matter
At the end of the day
Life is made for the living
Dare to make a mistake

Post-Chorus

I promise, I promise you’ll
Be okay

Verse 2

Breathe
In and out again
I want you to breathe
Rest your weary heart

I can’t
Let this be how your story ends
And I won’t
Stop until you understand

Pre-Chorus

Cause he
He only lives in memories
And I pray
I pray he’ll move along

Chorus

You try too hard to be perfect
And it gets in the way
Of the things that you want to
Do and to say

But does it really matter
At the end of the day
Life is made for the living
Dare to make a mistake

Post-Chorus

I promise, I promise you’ll
Be okay

Bridge

It’s the thrill of it all
When you stumble and fall
Get up and up again

It’s not the end of the world
And I promise that you are
The only one who cares

So please
Just take my hand
Finally understand
You are the only one
Who cares

Chorus

You try too hard to be perfect
And it gets in the way
Of the things that you want to
Do and to say

I try too hard to be perfect
And it gets in the way
Of the things that I want to
Do and to say

But does it really matter
At the end of the day
Life is made for the living
Dare to make a mistake

Post-Chorus

I promise, I promise I’ll
Be okay
