Song Length 4:54 Genre Pop - General
Tempo Medium Slow (91 - 110) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Mood Troubled Subject Will, Determination
Language English Era 2000 and later


Lookin' in the mirror, eyes wide open today, seein' someone different, I hope will stay
A me that says yes, to dancin' with the crowd, instead of trying to escape (to)
somewhere lost and never found

Got to take this chance, 'cause I've been dreamin' it for years
With all the times I've failed, my trust in me's about disappeared
Don't wanna hole up in my room, any longer anymore
See the crash and burn, stay safe, slam the door

Not this time, I won't turn and hide
From this fire inside me, I'll rise from the ashes and...
Start again, becoming more than I have ever been
No more pretending not to cry, while I close my eyes
Not this time

It seems so long since that morning sun shined this way
Golden beams warmin my soul, like a holiday
Maybe I let life eclipse them, with every broken heart
Always dodging the light, scared to feel hope, from a spark

(same as Chorus 1)

I could cut and run when the valley looks deep
Take my right to pass when the trail gets steep
Say I don't want to try, the fall is too high
Tremble at the thought, of learnin to fly
Bow my head down, And let this dream... die

Not this time! I won't turn from the climb
Up this mountain(in)side me I'll rise from the rubble and
Start again, moving higher than, I have ever been
No more pretending not to lie, and say "its fine"
Pretending not to cry, while I close my eyes, Not this
time, not this time, not this time, no no no no no
Not this time
