lyrics

= I've spent my whole life watching my heroes quit - to find some meaning I - stood in the road and I felt all my consequences - they kick me while I'm down - I guess I shouldn't be surprised at how this turned out - I just couldn't walk away from it somehow - I've always fought tooth and nail and kept my head down - but I still lost my way - I don't think I have the voice to pull it off - and I've got no love left for myself - I don't have a choice to run away - but it's up to me - so it's up to me - this song is for the ones who wrote me off - when I put my heart on the shelf - I promise that our time will come - you'll see - that we're going to be - we're going to be - collecting dust all alone on the shelf - it feels like I've spent this year asleep - lost in a valley as a LONE WOLF wandering - I took a step back for me - rebuilt my confidence - I'll watch this world go to hell - but I will not hate myself - I may be an UNDERDOG - but I'm still me - I swear one day you'll see - take me back to the good life we used to dream - when we conquered everything - I'll keep searching for an honest truth - but I was never looking up to you - my story's written by myself - and no one else - I don't think I have the voice to pull it off - and I've got no love left for myself - I don't have a choice to run away - but it's up to me - so it's up to me - this song is for the ones who wrote me off - when I put my heart on the shelf - I promise that our time will come - you'll see - that we're going to be - we're going to be - lost and alone - wish I could come back home but I - feel it slipping away - what's left to say when I've got no love left - for me - I don't think I have the voice to pull it off - and I've got no love left for myself - I don't have a choice - to run away - but it's up to me - it's up to me - this song is for the ones who wrote me off - when I put my heart on the shelf - I promise that our time will come you'll see - we're going to be - we're going to be - WOLVES - I can't believe I spent this year asleep - and I still struggle through my doubts and fears - but I'll stand strong just as I have before - I think it's time I admit that - I'm still an UNDERDOG =
