Lyrics Print

I wanna wrap the world in your arms
But I want you to know what that means
I want you to understand harm
And the difference between hope and dreams

I wanna brag about your heart
And how for you nothing's what it seems
I'd like to share in your art
And the pride that comes from being a team

But that's far away
So far away
This song's in vain
They're all gonna say

Yet I'll still scale that wall
Through any kind of pain

It's hard to know what you don't know
Teach you and hope you never fail
I want you to understand it all
And unlike I've done so far, prevail

This is hardly a passing of the baton
I've got to make me fall behind you someday
I wanna know what you'll be when I'm gone
I spend most my life dreaming that way

But that's far away
So far away
This song's in vain
They're all gonna say

Yet I'll still scale that wall
Through any kind of pain
Yeah I'm scaling that wall
Through every kind of pain
