Now I Know

Truth is, I fear I fear that I lack (I lack)
I lack the resolve
To move beyond this wall
And Live the life I really want

It's been a year a year since I (since I)
Since I left home
and for that I've nothing to show
I'm no different than a year ago

But I guess I can say I've learned
It's not the lighter that makes the fire burn
Two sticks will work
If you just exert the effort
That's the way to go, now I know

(Now I know, now I know)
That’s just how it goes
(Now I know)

Here, there, and everywhere there are sounds (sounds)
That I've never seen
What could this mean?
I may be worse off than I seem

I soak in what I can
But understand that if it's to be
It's up to only me
To make this vision a reality

But still a seed
Can't become a tree
Without sunbeams
Or rain at the very least
There are things you can't control, now I know

(Now I know, now I know)
That’s just how it goes
(Now I know)

It must bury
When it falls from the parent tree
It learns to shed its leaves
and you know it will always need
A little room to grow, now I know

(Now I know, now I know)

That’s just how it goes
