lyrics

failure is the mother of success
but id like to think i havent failed u yet
one day i know i will and then i hope that we can remain friends
but after all, after all, after all, after all
i hope for a beginning in every end

failure is the mother of success
but things have gone much better than i ever had expected
still u know what i suspect is contradictions coming next
and when we face them i hope we resolve and mend

failure is the mother of success
u never know which way u will fail next
every day we are learning and the ways we try to understand
will hopefully make steadier these hands

failure is the mother of success
i never will forget all my regrets
ill dwell on them to my hearts torment
cause i know i need to implement
the changes in my life to reinvent

(after all, after all)

im ready to change for good
im ready to do the things i should
im not a teenager anymore
im not as sick as i was before
i know what i live for
i know what i live for
i know who i work for
i know who i work for
when i was crying on the floor
when i was crying on the floor
15 and dying i was crying on the floor
didnt know what i lived for
now i know what i live for
didnt know who i worked for
now i know who i work for
and u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away
u cant take it away, nothing can take this away

face right up to ur failure. and
say, “this will not last forever”

failure is the mother of success
i never will forget all my regrets
every day we are learning and the ways we try to understand
could make for a beginning in every end

(after all, after all)
