Hey you,
Ya I'm talking to you
This here’s your conscience calling
You say your finished with the work you have to do?

You content to sit and count the wrinkles on your brow?
No, you’re dreaming of better destinations

 You’d be going 

But, you're scared you don't know how

Because you made some plans
That went and blew up in your face
You ended up a few thousand miles
From the nearest sympathetic face

You’re thinking, my time has passed me on by
I can’t compete on this stage

Well, nothing happens to you
When you hesitate

You ain't the only wounded pony
To come out of them blocks late
So put your blinders on
And dial up your pace

(and know that)
You must step with purpose
Whatever track your on
And there’ll be strangers betting on you
If you show 'em a little piece of where your heart is coming from
They’ve all heard the take, about how it shall be done

They're just looking down here baby, for the horses that want to run
 
Hey you've got more than one chance to spark your fire
You've got more than one heat to make what you're feeling come through
All you need you got right there inside you
Maybe a little mud on you now
It ain’t enough to keep you stuck too long 

If you don’t want it to


First forgive yourself now
You've just been learning how to move
See all those failures have drawn you the map
To the new heights that you could soar on to

But hey, it's your time to spend
Before you join the dearly departed
But the glory be in this life for those
Who are gonna finish what they started

 

Hey you've got more than one chance to spark your fire
You've got more than one heat to make what you're feeling come through
All you need's that love that you got inside you
Maybe a little blood on you now, but not enough to keep down 

Too long if you don't want it to
 
Hey you,
Ya, I'm still talking to you
But you can gladly disregard this message
If you're telling me there ain’t nothing you want to prove
 
Don’t live a life, thinking

I wish I’d only done

Because if there’s a heaven
 I’ll bet, they play the horses that want to run
 
You've got more than one chance to spark your fire
You've got more than one heat to make what you've been dreaming come true
Got to give that love that you got inside you
Maybe be little mud on you now, 

But it ain’t enough to keep you down too long if you don’t want it to 

Hey You
