    Step into a new day
    We can rise up from the dust and walk away
    We can dance upon the heartache, yeah
    So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
    And don’t you look back
    So long to shame
    Walk through the sorrow
    Out of the fire
    Into tomorrow
    Face the fear
    Feel the wave disappear
    We’re comin’ clear
    We’re born again
    Our hopeful lungs can breathe again
    Oh, we can breathe again
