All we can do now, is make the best of what we have
Our shiny parts within rusty old machines
Realities that we sculpt out of our dreams

Regret is a funny old thing
It points and it laughs from behind the scenes
People say you should never regret anything
Believing that does not lessen the sting

The one you get from doing something that you should never have done
The knots you feel in your stomach when you hurt a loved one
Don't you dare look at me that way.

'Cause I am good, and I am strong
And I don't have to be alone
No-one ever has to be alone
And I will walk, upon this earth
Head held high, feet in the dirt
And I will come to be just what I'm worth

Never mind buying time
We can smile and wave as it passes by
Not worrying about the speed of it
You fall and graze your knee pick out the grit

Try and get some sleep
Ignore your subconscious just for a while
Get drunken brawls and bloody knuckles out of there
And I could run my fingers through your hair

Don't get bogged down, I know it's the way you're inclined
I believe in the power of the positive mind
Please don't look away

'Cause you are good, and you are strong
And you won't ever be alone
I am always here you just need ask
And you will walk, upon this earth
Head held high, concealing hurt
And you will show them all just what you're worth
Yes you will show them all.

All we can do now
All we can do now
All we can do now
All we can do now
All we can do now
Is make the best of what we have

'Cause we're all lines, of the same song
Made of blood and skin and hair and bone
And none of us should have to be alone
And we all walk, upon this earth
Searching for that patch of dirt
The one that makes us feel like what we're worth
