lyrics

NOW'S THE TIME

verse: Am G x3 G C x2
pre-chorus: Bm Em C C
chorus: G Bm C C x2 G B7 C C

don't you decide you won
cause you relied upon the only
people who idolize
until they realize they've drawn
taller lines for you
better times to make it true
the shoulders of giants gone
shows your reliance, all aloof
foreign eyes provide the proof

[PRE]
contemplate the frame to stretch your lies
bold but still ashamed to break your ties

[CHORUS]
but break them all, break them now's the time
you say you're not afraid – another lie?
you face a fall or face another climb
...well now's the time

look at this rivalry
seems to survive on jealousy
weighing the consequence
the light that you shone against
throwing a shadow there
what's the matter? don't you care?
climb the ladder not the stairs

[PRE]
& exercise restraint or canonize
finally find the strength to break your ties

[CH]
