you take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
its the morning of your very first day
you say hI to your friends you aint seen in a while
try and stay out of everybodys way
its your freshman year and youre gonna be here
for the next four years in this town
hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
you know i havent seen you around, before
chorus
Cause when youre fifteen and
somebody tells you they love you
youRe gonna believe them
and when youre fifteen,
feeling like
theres nothing to fIgure out
well count to ten, take it in
this is life before you know
who youre gonna be
fifteen
you sit in class nExt to a
redhead named abigail
and soon enough
youre best friends
laughing at the other girls
who think theyre so cool
well be out of here
as soon as we can
and then youre on your very first
Date and hes got a car
and youre feeling like flying
and your mamas Waiting up and youre thinking hes the one
and youre dancing round your room when the night ends
wHen the night ends
chorus
cause when youre fifteen and
somebody tells you they love you
youre gonna believe them
when youre fifteen and your first kiss
makes your head spin round but
In your life youll do things greater than
dating the boy on the footbalL team
but i didnt know it at fifteen
when all you wantEd
was to be wanted
wish you could go back
and tell youRself what you know
now
back thEn i swore i was gonna
marry him someday
but i realized some bigger dreams
of mine
and abigail gave everything she had
to a boy
who Changed his mind
and we bOth cRied
chorus
cause when youre fifteen and
someboDy tells you they love you
youre gonna believe them
and when youre fIfteen, doNt
forGet to look before you fall
ive found Time can Heal most anything
and you just might find who youre supposed to be
I didnt know who i was Supposed to be
at fifteen
la la la la lala la la la lala la la la la
your very first day
take a deep breath girl
take a deep breath as you walk through the doors

repeating history and yoUre getting sick of it
but i believe in whatever you do
and ill do anything to see it through
chorus
because these things will change

these walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down
this revolution, the tiMe will come
for us to finAlly win
we sing hallelujah, we sing hallelujah
so weve been outnumbereD
raided and now cornerEd
its hard to fighT when the fight aint fair
were getting stronger now
find tHings they never found
they might be bIgger
but were faster and Never scared
you can walk away, say we dont need this
but theres somethinG in your eyeS
says we Can beat tHis
repeat chorus
tonight well stAnd, get off our kNees
fiGht for what weve workEd for all these years
and the battle was long, its the Fight of OuR lives
but well stand up chaMpions tonight
it was the night things changEd
do you see it now?
these walls that they put up to hold us back fell down
its a revolution, throw your hands up
cause we never gave in
and well sing hallelujah, we sang hallelujah
hallelujah

hes got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel
the other on my heart
i Look around, turn the radio down
he says baby is something wrong?
i say nothIng i was just thinking how we dont haVe a song
and hE says
chorus
our song is the slamming screen door,
sneakin out late, tappIng on your wiNdow
when were on the phone and you talk real slow
cause its Late and your mama dont know
our song is the way you laugh
the first date man, i didnt kiss her, but i should have
and when i gOt home before i said amen
asking god if he could play it again
i was walking up the front porch steps after eVerything that day
had gone all wrong and bEen trampled on
and lost and thrown away
got to the hallway, well on my way to my lovin bed
i almost didnt notice all the roses
and the note that said
cause our song is the slamming screen door
sneaking out late, tapping on his window
when were on the phone and he talks real slow
cause its late and his mama dont know
our song is the way he laughs
the first date man, i didnt kiss him, and i could have
and when i got home, before i said amen
asking god if he could play it again
ive heard every album, listened to the radio
waited for something to come along
that was as good as our song
repeat chorus
i was riding shotgun with my hair undone
in the front seat of his car
i grabbed a pen and an old napkin
and i wrote down our song

it's strange to think the songs we used to sing
the smiles, the flowers, everythingis gone
yesterday i found out about you
even now just looking at youfeels wrong
you say that you'd take it all back, given one chance
it was a moment of weakness and you said yes
chorus
you should've said no, you Should've gone home
you should've thought twice before you let it All go
you should've known that word, bout what you did with her
would get back to Me
and i Should've been there, in the bAck of your Mind
i Shouldn't be Asking Myself why
you shouldn't be begging for forgivenesS At My feet
you should've Said no, baby And you Might still have me
you can see that i've been crying
and baby you know all the right thingsto say
but do you honestly expect me to believe
we could ever be the same
you say that the past is the past, you need one chance
it waS A Moment of weakness and you said yes
repeat chorus
i can't resistbefore you go, tell me this
was it worth it
was she worth this
nono no no
repeat chorus

This album is called FEARLESS, and I guess Id like to clarify why we chose that as the title. To me,
FEARLESS
is not the
absence of fear. Its not being completely unafraid. To me,
FEARLESS
is having fears.
FEARLESS
is having doubts. Lots of
them. To me,
FEARLESS
is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.
FEARLESS
is falling madly in love again,
even though youve been hurt before.
FEARLESS
is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen.
FEARLESS
is
getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over againeven though every time youve tried before, youve lost. Its
FEARLESS
to have faith that someday things will change.
FEARLESS
is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who
only hurts you, even if you cant breathe without them. I think its
FEARLESS
to fall for your best friend, even though hes in love with
someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things theyll never stop doing, I think its
FEARLESS
to stop
believing them. Its
FEARLESS
to say youre NOT sorry, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is
FEARLESS
. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is
FEARLESS
. Letting go is
FEARLESS
. Then, moving
on and being alrightThats
FEARLESS
too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in
love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. Thats why I write these songs. Because I think love is
FEARLESS
.
