It’s time to leave
Packed up all my favorite things
Storms can come my way, bring clouds I'm not afraid
'Cause I believe, this will be my destiny
Storms that send down rain also bring winds of change
Finally, feel like I can spread my wings
Destination’s clear though my flight's been delayed
'Cause time and time again I've found
That once your feet come off the ground
You can't help but find the strength
To break loose from the chains
That held you from your dreams

The road has been testin' me
But it won't get the best of me
I was lost for a little while
But that’s over now, it's up to me
I'm turning my life around,
So it won't ever get me down
Took a while just to figure out
It was always up to me

Used to be
I questioned every move I made
Things that mean the most are quick to test your faith
While I could see the picture clearly in my head
I always worried that I might run out of paint
And then suddenly, like a day brand new
All my colors began to fall in place
Filling all my voids, I'm overjoyed
Made a difference in my life
And led me to the place I wanna be

And it took me some time, but now I realize
We're defined in life by roles we choose to play
While I can breathe I'm gonna do everything I can
To make the most of mine while I’m still on the stage
'Cause no one really knows what the future holds
You're not promised another day
You owe it to yourself, If for no one else
To make the changes in your life
That get you to the place you need to be
