This one’s ‘bout a man
Who thought that he had figured it out
Figured it out
When I found him
He told me that he didn’t need any help
From anyone else

If I’ve got this on my own
If I’ve got this on my own
Then the only hope I’m holding onto now is me

We live for life, we always climb
We always want to go further
Are you really entitled to anything?
Are you really? Are you really?
I was bigger when I made myself smaller
I was bigger when I made myself small

As the years went by
I started asking him “What do you deserve?”
“What do you deserve?”
If your life revolves around yourself
Then what are you worth?
What are you worth?

How much larger would your life be
If yourself could become smaller in it?
How much larger would your life be
If you put more value in the people around you?
