lyrics

I go to seek a great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t life under beds anymore
They moved to awkward situations, to the fear of making mistakes,
And live in my lurking self-doubt.

All the boy ever wanted was to be an astronaut
Paper rockets soared through his tiny room
All the people said was “Sit still and finish your homework
So that one day you might find a real job.”

I go to seek a great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t life under beds anymore
They moved to awkward situations, to the fear of making mistakes,
And live in my lurking self-doubt.

And the boy never brought good grades home from school
He always thought he was not good enough
Trying to fulfill the expectations other people had
While he dreamt of being an astronaut.

I go to seek a great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t life under beds anymore
They moved to awkward situations, to the fear of making mistakes,
And live in my lurking self-doubt.

When the no longer small boy at least graduated from his school
His degree was merely average
But now he knew that the only thing that really counts
Is what you expect of yourself.

No one really knows
What happened to that small boy
All that I know is this:

He went to seek his great perhaps
Also afraid of monsters that don’t live under beds anymore
And while at times his search might not be easy he will always look ahead
Cause he knows the way.

We go to seek our great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t live under beds anymore
And while at times our search might not be easy we will always look ahead
Cause we know the way.
(2x)
