Finish Line


FINISH LINE

I've never been one to overstate But I always own what I create In the back of my mind I overrate And in the front of my mind it's all a game

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line Rubbing my feet, thinking about my journey as I unwind And it took me some time to get this far I take a deep breath and I'm glad it's over

I try to think about where I'll go from here Staring out the window, my mind's unclear And I know that I ought not to fear The second I let go of control, my future will appear

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line Rubbing my feet, thinking about my future as I unwind And it took me some time to get this far I take a deep breath and I'm glad it's over

I may have even taken the scenic backroad once or twice I may have even broken down on the side of my life But got back up, put myself together, Got back on the road, and faced the weather

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line Rubbing my feet, thinking about life as I unwind And it took me some time to get this far I take a deep breath and I'm glad it's over

Probably won't make a change like this again for a while And the thought of staying still makes me want to smile In thinking how I got here, I count every mile As I step into my new life with grace and style

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line Rubbing my feet, thinking about myself as I unwind And it took me some time to get this far I take a deep breath (for myself) and I'm glad it's over I'm glad it's over, I'm glad it's over, I'm so glad it's over ---
