This Far

I have shed my old skin
its wrinkles full of old sin
I have shed a tear for you

You missed your aim a few times
waited at the side lines
you missed it when they called your cue

It wasn’t always easy
you didn’t always see me
so you took a shot in the dark

I’m not what you imagine
an image of a dragon
so fiery within my heart

This far
who’d have thought we’d get this far
Far away from all that noise
being brave was your choice
the journey made us who we are
who’d have thought we’d get this far

Let go of my hand now
I will manage somehow
let go of the person you were

I promise I’ll be okay
I don’t need you to stay
a promise helped us to get there

We have come a long way
along this crooked highway
thank you for the strength within

You always hope we’d get there
a get away from the fears
thank you for the journey it’s been

This far
who’d have thought we’d get this far
Far away from all that noise
being brave was your choice
the journey made us who we are
who’d have thought we’d get this far

I’ll be alright now
I have said goodbye now
thank you for seeing us through

I let go of your hand now
I’ll walk on my own now
But I will always think of you
