I had a place to live in
I had a job worth quitting
I had some things I had to change
Mistakes, but we all make them
We celebrate being young
I had the chance to run away
And I wish upon, a wrong can't turn a right
Believe me

Then we are (then we are) our only chance in the world
Face your failures, and hope they'll see us through
We are (we are) the only chance in the world
So stand for something, 'cause somethings over due
And I don't ask for much
But this could define a lifetime
A dead man's hands, we are the only friends we ever had

They called it education
I saw a means to an end
I saw my life another way
To live and die a king I thought there
Could be worse fate to land upon
And I'd go back home when it all blew up in my face

And I wish upon a sadder life that won't get turned to right
Believe me

Then we are (then we are) our only chance in the world
Face your failures, hope we'll see them through
We are (we are) the only chance in the world
So stand for something, 'cause somethings overdue
And I don't ask for much
But this could define a lifetime
A dead man's hands, we are the only friends we ever had

You need a map to see how far
I was sticking out my neck
We all have things that we all second guess
And fears of being ordinary

And I'll wish upon a sadder life that a wrong can't turn a right
Believe me

That we are (we are) the only chance in the world
We are (we are) our only chance in the world
So stand for something, 'cause somethings overdue
And I don't ask for much
But this could define a lifetime
A dead man's hands, we are the only friends we ever had

A dead man's hands, we are the only friends we ever had
