Tryin' to keep the faith, grindin' day to day to day to day
There's got to be a better way
It's got to get better, apathy wants my mind I can't let up
So I'm stretchin' out my hand to grab this moment
Keep movin', keep prayin', the Spirit is tellin' me to
Try baby, try, keep your head to the sky

One breath away
One song away, one song away
One dance away
One step away, one step away
One breath away

I'm reachin' & I'm stretchin' out, I'll give it 'til I've given out
I'm feelin' what I'm feelin' when I'm in my groove
Eyes are wide open, comin' into focus
I wrote this for the hopeless, tell me can you feel this
When & how is here & now
When we take hold yeah yeah
Fly baby, fly, put your hands to the sky

(Repeat chorus)

One word, one life
One choice, one night
