CHASING CLAYMORES lyrics : "The optimist"

The optimist in me
Was slowly eroding,
Consumed without knowing

Now regaining
Consciousness from its long sleep


Hanging on, both eyes closed
It kills me everytime
I lost my reasons in the truth

Forgotten what is left behind

Like a father who gives up when he chose not to stay

Or the preacher in the church who abandons his faith
I lost myself but now I am returning


The optimist in me
Was slowly eroding,
Consumed without knowing

Now regaining
Consciousness from its long sleep


When it's said and done
I will take my chances
Your expectations won't get the best of me


Facing my fears
Looking back is enough

Retracing my steps
Which way should I go?


Like a father who gives up when he chose not to stay
Or the preacher in the church who abandons his faith
I lost myself but now I am returning


It hasn't gotten any easier
I fought with everything I have

Nobody promised much of anything
I'm still not sure if this will last


I've lost my faith
And only failure followed
My dreams, my world

Crushed by circumstance

I found my way

Only pride was swallowed
Opportunity presents itself once again


The optimist in me
Was slowly eroding,
Consumed without knowing

Now regaining
Consciousness from its long sleep


When it's said and done
I will take my chances
Your expectations won't get the best of me
