Crucible

Your bags were packed and waiting
A smile was on your face
Your life was set before you
As you set to leave this place
I watched your taillights fading
Then vanish round the bend
And just like that your days at home would end

Well, I know the world is calling
I’ve felt its pull before
The road ahead is winding
But the destination’s sure
I know you’ll do amazing
But if life takes its toll
Just know we’re here beside you
The world is wide but
You are not alone

Your heart will break, I know it
You wear it just like me
But time can turn the hardest blows
To distant memories
And riptides, they may pull you down
But currents ebb and flow
And that can be enough to swim to shore

Well, I know the world is calling
I’ve felt its pull before
The road ahead is winding
But the destination’s sure
I know you’ll do amazing
But if life takes its toll
Just know we’re here beside you
The world is wide but
You are not alone

So I’ll wait and watch the life you build (here I stand on the precipice)
And retake your heart that won’t be stilled (’cause you know the world is calling)
And though life may try you through it all (I’ll have to fight the good fight)
I know you will last its crucible (I know the world is calling)

And though life may try you through it all (So here I stand on the precipice)
I know you will last its crucible
