LYRICS
Old Shoes

Turning pages bound only by cheap memories
The end is nearing as the sun descends behind the trees
It seems there's never enough time to hold on
But it is my time now, and for the first time I belong

And I'll run fast enough to catch my dreams
And I'll run away
And I hope that you can muster up the courage to
Bring yourself down from your cloud

For some life may come easy, for others not so much
And as hard as I wished, I never had a moment I could touch
All of my life I've tried to hide everything I can
Cause I'm not strong enough to show you who I am

And I'll run fast enough to catch my dreams
And I'll run away
And I hope that you can muster up the courage to
Bring yourself down from your cloud

Maybe you'll listen hard and try to understand
Maybe you'll see that this is not the life I planned
Before I leave I want to give you my old shoes
So you can walk my mile and have nothing to lose

And I'll run fast enough to catch my dreams
And I'll run away
And I hope that you can muster up the courage to
Bring yourself down from your cloud

I tell you this in hopes that you don't make the same mistakes
Keep sight of what's right before your good heart breaks
Maybe you'll have the chance I didn't have at all
If you can catch yourself before you fall
If you can catch yourself before you fall
