Lyrics:

Verse 1

How long I have wanted,
this dream to come true.
And as it approaches, 
I can't believe I'm through.

Pre-Chorus
I've tried, 
oh how I've tried,
for the life, yes the life
I thought I knew.

Chorus
Oh it's the price we have to pay,
and all the games we gotta play.
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on.
Cause it's a game we gotta lose,
though it's a life we gotta choose.
And the price is on our life until its done.

Verse 2
Time seems to have frozen.
But the mob can't be fooled.
As the days pass I discover,
destiny just can't be ruled.

Pre Chorus 2
Hard times, 
oh hard times, 
for the price, yes the price 
I thought I knew.

Chorus
Oh it's the price we have to pay,
and all the games we gotta play.
Makes me wonder if it's worth it to carry on.
Cause it's a game we gotta lose,
though it's a life we gotta choose.
And the price is on our life until its done.
