It felt like I failed
With the stealth of a snail
And my health wasn't well
As my wealth was impailed
I left my hometown with high hopes
It quickly turned into walking a tight a rope
And then into a noose
And I barely got loose
Before the chair broke
And the air choked
From the flare's smoke
From the signal I was sending you
I couldn't even be pretending to
Enjoy myself in the city
It's a pity
Everything that could go wrong did
And I felt like a scared little kid
Lost for the first time
The city's heart beat had hurt mine
And in turn I
Had to run to what I truly love
I jumped over the edge before I was shoved
I didn't know how I would land
Or if I could stand
With broken bones
So far from home
Because I no longer had one
But I still had to run
Until I couldn't move
And it got me back in the groove
At least for a while
But I had to face my trials
Before I could truly smile
I returned to face my failures and was greeted with solitude
My heart beat through a hollow tube
The echo ringing in my ears
As I faced my fears
Still wondering if I could make it here
And I had to wait a year
But the second time back was triumphant
Once again my heart was thumphing
But this time it was beating in rhythm
To the feeling of winning
I was grinning
Knowing I had overcome everything
I could hear my spirit sing
Now hear it ring

Chorus:

Walking in the sun, feeling it beat on my skin
Feeling the heat of the win
Complete with the wind
So I could compete once again
Ever step I took was a little bit lighter
Every sparkle in my eye was a little bit brighter
I felt like a kid, but this time I was found
Instead of footsteps, I glided on the ground
I wasn't hiding from this town
Instead I was getting down
It no longer feels like I failed in the city
And I no longer feel like it had failed me

Chorus:

It's great to be back!
