Think country music
Have you ever walked somewhere
you didn't need to go
but you went there anyhow
because how were you to know
that just maybe where you walked
was a lonely one way road
and it wouldn't matter later on
the reasons that pushed you so.

Have you ever looked over your shoulder
when you should look straight ahead
because where you've been and where you are
are all mixed up in your head?
Have you ever wished you could go back
and try it all again?
But now the bridge is broken,
just shattered timbers on the ground.

Just build it up.
Take the pieces from where they fell.
Just build it up.
Build a ladder out of hell.
Just build it up.
Find the words you need to say.
Just build it up and
cross over....
to a better day.

Have you ever left someone behind
because of words that stayed unsaid?
Have you ever been afraid to say
someone else was right instead?
Have you ever watched the world go by
because you thought that you could never fly?
Have you ever mourned a moment lost
or missed the yearning in a sigh?

Have you found yourself in darkness
because you missed a sunny smile?
Have you ever wanted to pick up that phone
but stopped short of the dial?
Did you take the long way round the bend
to avoid seeing what might make it end?
Did you ever think that you chose that heavy load?
It is all a matter of crossing the right road.

So...
Just build it up.
Take the pieces from where they fell.
Just build it up.
Build a ladder out of hell.
Just build it up.
Find the words you need to say.
Just build it up and
cross over....
to a better day.

Just build it up and
cross over....
to a better day....
