Written by Jake Ohlbaum


It's been a while since you cracked a smile
Broken down on the very last mile
You keep thinking happiness is dead
Sunny day but you can't see straight
Your good luck is running late
Life brought you to your knees instead

You try to let it go
But no one really knows how you feel when you're down

But this is not the end
This is not the end
Sometimes when you're down, you need to hear it from a friend
So this is not the end

You're worn out and you're out of breath
All you do is sit and rest
No energy for something new
You wanna get back in the ring
Wanna dance and you wanna sing
The restart is the hardest thing to do

You think you lost your touch
The sadness just won't budge, but do you hear that sound


It's been a while since you cracked a smile
You just can't go the extra mile
You feel dizzy from the discontent
