I’m thankful for all that’s happened: The good and seemingly bad Every laugh and every cry, Every regret that I’ve got, And all the lessons that I learned Have led me here To this moment To this moment While all of it is happening Little makes any sense And all your questions answerless And all you’ve got’s uncertainty ‘Till one day it just all Seems to fall in place With effort and patience You’ll find your answers and you’ll Find yourself happy to be Right where you are With the people around you And the person you’ve become To this moment To this moment Everything happens for the reason you choose Everything happens for the reason you choose To this moment To this moment

We still have some time Before you’ve got to go To keep doing whatever We want to So let’s make the most of what time we have And not waste a moment being distracted We’ll let autoplay choose what’s on next And when it asks us if we're still watching We’ll lie and say yes It’ll be our secret I already want to relive tonight Even while it’s still happening I already want to relive tonight Even though you’re still here with me I just wish we could And I won’t try to convince you To stay or take a later bus home Because you need to get your rest And we both know who would win that debate Hint: you would But I already want to relive tonight Even while it’s still happening I already want to relive tonight Even though you’re still here with me I just wish we Could stay in this place for awhile longer And not worry about our to-dos in the outside world Just me and you on this burning couch I already want to relive tonight Even while it’s still happening I already want to relive tonight Even though you’re still here with me I just wish we could

I’ve been here before, I think I’m not sure if it’s a memory or just a dream I had I know I've heard these waves crashing But something’s different, something’s changed since then 'Cause for the first time, I feel like I’m alive And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here What happened to all those years that passed? Were they spent wisely or were they wasted? Well, either way, I never want to go back, even if I could 'Cause all I want is to be right here, where I am 'Cause for the first time, I feel like I’m alive And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here Finally I’ve come full circle And relearned how to be a child again Maybe that’s the point of this 'Cause finally I’ve come full circle And relearned how to be a child again Maybe that’s the point of this 'Cause for the first time, I feel like I’m alive And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here For the first time, I feel like I’m alive And for the first time, I feel like I’m really here

No matter how far you have strayed From the path we thought you would take No matter how much time has passed We’ll always keep the porch light on No matter the choices you’ve made That we don’t agree with No matter what you have done Just know you’ll always be our child 'Cause some things’ll never change Some things’ll never change No matter how much you take from me I would give it all away Just so I could have you back 'Cause I’ve always looked up to you And some things’ll never change Some things’ll never change Oh how proud I am that you turned around And I get to call you my big brother again I didn’t always like you during those years But I never stopped loving you And I never could 'Cause some things’ll never change Some things’ll never change Some things’ll never, they won’t ever change Some things’ll never change
5.
See what’d I tell ya? Do you believe me now Back when I said that with effort and patience you could Get to the place where you wanted to be Back when you started out on this journey? And now you know that it never goes ex- -actly how you planned it would But that’s where the fun is: in not knowing How the story goes You ask, “How can you be so sure of what you're saying?” And I say, “Just open your eyes and look around!” Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are You don’t have to have it all figured out 'Cause when the time comes then you’ll figure it out By yourself or with some help, the things that you need And the rest’ll fall away like the changing leaves Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are Seasons are changing, Seasons are changing, Yes they are Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are, Yes they are

After all the fire’s been put out And after all the subjects have been taught Was there more that you wanted? Or, was it enough? Well, was it? 'Cause can’t you feel, feel your heart beating? Can’t you tell it’s not too late for you? Could it be you think you missed all your chances? As if somehow you have no more chances left? Well can’t you feel, feel your heart beating? Can’t you tell it’s not too late for you? “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Is still a valid question to ask yourself “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Is still a valid question to ask yourself Can’t you feel, feel your heart beating? Can’t you tell it’s not too late for you? Can’t you feel, feel you’re still needed? Can’t you tell it’s not over yet?

Timelines 03:52
Here is where I’m meant to be 'Cause here is where I am today Not comparing my place to theirs But to my place of yesterday Instead of wishing I was someone or somewhere different 'Cause that’s never done me any good I’ll keep a picture of who and where I’ll be tomorrow And I’ll get there when I do Timelines will never be alike And that’s good, what a bore if they were I’ll get there when I get there I’ll get there when I get there I’ll get there when I get there I’ll get there when I get there It’s not wrong to want the things they have It’s wrong to think something’s wrong with me if I don’t It’s not wrong to want the things they have It’s wrong to think something’s wrong with me if I don’t have them yet 'Cause I don’t have them yet If I don’t have them yet 'Cause I don’t have them yet Timelines will never be alike And that’s good, what a bore if they were I’ll get there when I get there I’ll get there when I get there I’ll get there when I get there I’ll get there when I get there
8.
I’ve got to go see for myself And learn who that is, and experience And you’ve got to stay, and do your thing And become who you were meant to be This isn’t goodbye, this is goodbye, for now Who knows what’ll be In a year or two or three I have my hope, though, if I’m being honest I still have a fear This is goodbye, and this isn’t goodbye, for now So if I never get to see you again Just know I’m thankful for the time we spent But my hope is This is goodbye, for now And that I’ll see you in a little while Goodbye, for now I hope I’ll see you in a little while
