Lyrics

I used to hide when I was just a child
Behind my Momma’s knees
And every time I’d feel I was gonna cry
When a stranger looked at me
There still are days when I don’t wanna play
It’s easier to stay at home and hide
I tell myself it’s gonna be o.k
Come on give it one more try
And look how far you’ve come
Stepping out the door and having fun
Look how far you’ve come able to say hi to everyone
For several years I listened to my fears
They told me not to go
But staying here I quickly disappear
Deeper within my hole
I cannot lie I’m petrified just two days before the show
What have I done too late to run come on baby just let go
And look how far you’ve come
Stepping out the door and having fun
Look how far you’ve come able to say no to anyone
Am I crazy will there ever be a time I’m not afraid
Yes this will change me
If I lose myself I trust that I will find me again
And look how far you’ve come
Stepping out the door and having fun
Look how far you’ve come able to say hi to everyone
Look how far you’ve come
Standing on the stage and having fun
Look how far you’ve come ya your life has just begun
I used to hide when I was just a child
Behind my Momma’s knees
