v.1
I've worked all my life to be good at this thing,
that you cheer, that I fight, just to fly, get it right,
And I try and I try and I try and I try,
I claw and I scratch just to light this wet match

The fire it burns through the rain and the hail,
The seasons fly by like I'm sitting in jail,
And I run and I run like I'm standing in place,
Through the tears and the pain of my frustrated brain


pre-ch.
And ask why?
Did'ya have to make it so high?
And I try and I try and I try and I try,
I keep up the fight, 'cuz I must get it right


ch.
'Cuz I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
And I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
Yeah, I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
with you


v.2
The latest dark princess is singing her song,
Asking me about life and where it went wrong,
And my friends sing along like they all know the tale,
While I stumble and fall and feel like I fail


pre-ch.
And ask why?
Did'ya have to make it so high?
And I try and I try and I try and I try,
I keep up the fight, 'cuz I must get it right


ch.
'Cuz I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
And I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
Yeah, I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
with you


v.3
I'm sitting on top of this step at the bottom of life,
Looking up at the sky and I'm wondering,
Why is my life such a wreck, such a hell,
And I finally stop and I ring my own bell,
I open my wings and take to the sky


pre-ch.
And I fly,
Where dreams testify,
When you finally decide just to be who you are.
The world opens up just to make you a star


ch.
And I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
And I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
And, I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
Yeah, I love (love, love) the way that I feel in this moment,
with you
