Fears I wish I could lose,
That make the mountains so hard to climb,
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometimes.
There's a bag of regret,
Should've beens and not yets,
That keep on dragging around,
And I can hardly wait till the day I get to lay them all down.

And I know it's gonna be here soon
And I know I won't turn back even if the whole world 
Says I'm doing the wrong way
Cause it's just a long way home
