lyrics

Like a switch flipped, I stopped searching
When I realized nothing's perfect
From the beginning, perfect things were here before us
But touching messed them up, we demanded love, we demanded trust
We expected the jackpot would hit, if we played long enough

But here's a true thing that sounds pretty dumb
Unlikely stuff prob'ly won't happen for us, and there's
A lot of us; if I mess this up where can I go?
This'll still be home, but I won't fit here anymore

So commit, put down your chips
Commit, go cash them in
Commit, push past don't quit
Commit, make it work

Commit, put down your chips
Commit, go cash them in
Commit, push past don't quit
Commit, make it work

Every time I feel brave
Turns out that I'm running from something scarier
Every time I get stuck, I'm up
Against one of my own barriers

Every time I feel brave
Turns out that I'm running from something scarier
Every time I get stuck, I'm up
Against one of my own barriers

And I'm terrified, so I know it's right
This part of me, it needs to open
Start a life, not agonize
About the one I've chosen

So commit, put down your chips
Commit, go cash them in
Commit, push past don't quit
Commit, make it work

So commit, put down your chips
Commit, go cash them in
Commit, push past don't quit
Commit, make it work

Right, so let's say we're given a life at random
Out of all of the human lives that have happened and will happen
And now we're asking
What are the chances that ours isn't average
That we are one of the very first
And the future's bringing more and better, not less and worse

But here's a true thing that sounds pretty dumb
Unlikely stuff prob'ly isn't true of us
And there's a lot of us; more now than ever before
So we shouldn't trust a theory that puts us on the ground floor
Of a great exception,

We could be great though it's all here in our heads
It's a mindset, not grass is greener, but grass gets
Good when you sweat, care for and love it
And if you live in a desert, maybe choose something less wet?
Cultivate it!

Commit, put down your chips
Commit, go cash them in
Commit, push past don't quit
Commit, make it work

Commit, put down your chips
Commit, go cash them in
Commit, push past don't quit
Commit, make it work

Every time I feel brave
Turns out that I'm running from something scarier
Every time I get stuck, I'm up
Against one of my own barriers

Every time I feel brave
Turns out that I'm running from something scarier
Every time I get stuck, I'm up
Against one of my own barriers
