It's the Only One You've Got
by 3 Doors Down



How do you know where you're goin'
When you don't know where you've been
You hide the shame that you're not showin'
And you won't let anyone in

A crowded street can be a quiet place
When you're walking alone
Now you think that you're the only one

Who doesn't have to try
Then you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fly
Then I guess you never will

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

Memories have left you broken
And the scars have never healed
The emptiness in you is growing
With so little left to feel

You're scared to look back on the days before
And too tired to move on
Now you think that you're the only one

Who doesn't have to try
Then you won't have to fail
If you're afraid to fly
Then I guess you never will

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like It's the only one you've got

Ooohhh...What would it take
Ooohhh...To get you to say that I'll try
And what would you say
If this was the last day of your life

You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
You're mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this lif you're given
Like it's the only one you've got...
