Up To You

lyrics

"Nothing good ever comes to me", you say
"It's only common sense
That I built this high and mighty wall
It's here in my defense"
Don't you see
It's the wall that keeps you in
And locked so firmly in your place
We're all outside waiting for you
To come out and meet the human race

It's up to you
To step through
To the other side
Of the fence
And see where live begins
All I can do
Is to show you to the door
The rest is up to you

Choose a side that sets you free
It's how I crossed the line
I should have done that so much earlier in life
That's why I traveled back in time
Don't you see
You and me we are the same
Just from another year
I'm here to tell you it is safe outside
So, come on, let's get out of here

It's up to you
To step through
To the other side
Of the fence
And see where live begins
All I can do
Is to show you to the door
The rest is up to you

(solo)

It's up to you
To step through
To the other side
Of the fence
And see where live begins
All I can do
Is to show you to the door
The rest is up to you
