When you long with all your heart for someone to love you, a madness grows there that shakes all sense from the trees and the water and the earth. And nothing lives for you, except the long deep bitter want. And this is what everyone feels from birth to death.

Running in circles
A game of chase and push and pull
You say that life is a gamble
You have to take risks

Push until you fall
Get up until you can't
How far will we take it?
How far is too far?

The bar is raised
The stakes ever higher
I swear I'll win
I swear I'll beat you

Every time it's you
And there I stand defeated
This time I'm raising the bar
I swear I'll beat you

You say I'll never do it
I say Dare me
You say I'll never leave
I say watch me

Never again will I fall between the cracks
Never again will I lay myself down
You want to play this game
I'm in

But this time I set the stakes
This time I take it farther
The bar is high
You'll never reach it
I swear I'll win

Try and beat me
I dare you
But you can't win
Not this time
I'll take it too far
I'm invincible
Nothing can stop me
No not this time
I swear I'll beat you
I swear I'll win
