Lyrics


Livin' with my eyes closed, goin' day to day

I never knew the difference, I never cared either way

Lookin' for a reason, searchin' for a sign

Reachin' out with both hands, I gotta feel the kick inside


All fired up

(Now I believe there comes a time)

All fired up

(When everything just falls in line)

All fired up

(We live an' learn from our mistakes)

All fired up, fired up, fired up, hey


Ain't nobody livin' in a perfect world

And everybody's out there, cryin' to be heard

And now I got a new fire, burnin' in my eyes

Lightin' up the darkness, movin' like a meteorite


All fired up

(Now I believe there comes a time)

All fired up

(When everything just falls in line)

All fired up

(We live an' learn from our mistakes)

All fired up, fired up, fired up

(The deepest cuts are healed by faith)


Now I believe there comes a time

When everything just falls in line

We live an' learn from our mistakes

The deepest cuts are healed by faith


Now I believe there comes a time

When everything just falls in line

We live an' learn from our mistakes

The deepest cuts are healed by faith


Now I believe there comes a time

When everything just falls in line

We live an' learn from our mistakes

The deepest cuts are healed by faith


Now I believe there comes a time

When everything just falls in line

We live an' learn from our mistakes

The deepest cuts are healed by faith

Now I believe


All fired up

(Now I believe there comes a time)

All fired up

(When everything just falls in line)

All fired up

(We live an' learn from our mistakes)

All fired up, fired up, fired up, hey

(The deepest cuts are healed by faith)


Now I believe there comes a time

When everything just falls in line

We live an' learn from our mistakes

The deepest cuts are healed by faith
