"We few, we happy few/we band of brothers/For he to-day that sheds his blood with me/Shall be my brother"
-Shakespeare, "Henry V"


Hey I know

What it’s like to be holding on

By sometimes nothing at all

Yeah I know

How it feels to be forced to crawl

To scared to stand cuz you’ll fall

But don’t look back

And don’t hold back


Cuz there’s something waiting for you and I

Across this river we swim side by side

Can you see the castle on the other side?

I know that you have got more inside

You have to see with more than just your eyes

Can you see the castle on the other side?


Hey I know

That you’re feeling so broken now

But do you know there’s a way out

Yeah I know

That you have so much pain in your heart

That you feel so ripped apart

But don’t look back

And don’t hold back



They’ll throw flowers at our feet

We’ll be hailed as Kings and Queens

Can you see the other side?

So prepare your future crown

And we will never back down

Can you see the other side?

I think of this as kind of a pop-ish song. I hope you like it, please comment because it's the first song I've posted on Teen Ink.

"Dear God," she prayed, "let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry...have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost." - Betty Smith (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn)

Fantastic job!! You have an amazing  talent for writing song lyrics! :D

These lyrics are beautiful and I wish I could hear the music that goes along with them. I loved the line "They'll throw flowers at our feet, we'll be hailed as Kings and Queens, can you see the other side?" Amazing! Great job :)
