HOW MUCH DOES IT COST

In this world it's hard to live these days
Without the things you don't believe in
Something comes along and I find out
That I don't like the way I'm feeling

Everywhere I turn there's compromise
Choosing what I'd put my name on
And when I find a way to spend my time
There's so many reservations

Like How Much Does It Cost
And how much could be lost
I have always had this dream
My whole life's on the line

But there's a girl I know who interests me
I tell her everything I'm thinking
If there's a chance I can be all I am
I can see no point in sinking

The last few years have had its toll on me
And lessons learned were often painful
My only chance is now I understand
To lay my cards out on the table

How Much Does It Cost
And how much could be lost
I have always had this dream
My whole life's on the line

I think it's time I'm finally on my way
I treasure all the dues I paid for
And as it stands I'd do it all again
To be the man that I was made for
