lyrics

I know I said I wouldn’t complain
When the weight became too much to bear
But that was before I felt all the strain
Of the work involved in getting where
I want to be

Steady me
Help me plant my feet
While I grit my teeth
Help me find my voice
It’s lost in all this noise
Come and set me free
Help me find my peace
While I work my hands to the bone

I know, I said I wouldn’t complain
When the going started getting rough
But now that I sit here gripping the reins
I begin to feel I’ve had enough
Of all this up and down

Steady me
Help me plant my feet
While I grit my teeth
Help me find my voice
It’s lost in all this noise
Come and set me free
Help me find my peace
While I work my hands to the bone

Please don’t leave me
Down and out and crawling back for more
I need a hand
I found out I can’t do this on my own
Trying to has left me here alone
Has left me on my own

Steady me
Help me plant my feet
While I grit my teeth
Help me find my voice
It’s lost in all this noise
Come and set me free
Help me find my peace
While I work my hands to the bone
