lyrics

I know what I must do
I felt the sound ring true
And it terrifies me
Buzzing like it is in my body
Compelled to give myself
There’s no unringing of the bell
It thrills and terrifies me
Pulling on me like it’s gravity

I’ve been afraid to be wrong
I’ve been afraid to be right
And isn’t it all the same fear
Of owning my own life?
But if this truth that I have heard
In my heart is to be believed
Then it comes down to me
This is the reckoning

And if I look away
Then there will always be a place
In my soul that reminds me
A decaying resonance in my body
Of life I might have known
There’s no unknowing what I know
This will always be with me,
The choice at this moment of reckoning

I’ve been afraid to fall down
I’ve been afraid to succeed
Turns out it’s all the same fear
Of me trusting me
But if this truth that I have heard
In my heart is to be believed
Then this is everything
It all comes down to me
This is the reckoning

I’ve been afraid to be wrong
I’ve been afraid to be right
Turns out it’s all the same damn fear
Owning my own life
But this truth that I have heard
Is the only thing that I believe
My life is up to me
This is my reckoning
My life is up to me

I know what I must do
I felt the sound ring true
