(Verse 1)
I can't see me waitin' around for you no more
There's too I wanna do, so what am I waitin' for?
I can't see me holdin' out for tomorrow's dreams
The bus is leaving and I can't be late
for my date with destiny.

(Pre chorus)
I'll take the longshot, if it's all that I got
whether or not you stay or go.
The time is right now, and I believe that somehow
it's time to get on with this show.

I'll take the longshot
I'll take the longshot
I'll take the longshot
Don't you wanna go?

(Verse 2)
I wake up every morning
I get up out of bed
I hear that voice talkin' to me from inside my head.
It says"What are you waitin' for?
Don't you wanna live out your dreams?"
It says "Rock steady, 'cause you better be ready
when you get that brush with fame."

(Pre chorus/Chorus)
