Lyrics

I got no regrets no matter the outcome
Loving it’s just one of the perks, and it goes like this
A little kid with a dream to chase
And a (inaudible) you could see from space
Couldn’t have been any older than 5 when our class got our very first homework
assignment
«What do you want to be when you grow up?»
I was fine till the other kids showed up
With doctors and astronauts, even people cleaning out the trash cans
Not me, I wanted to be Batman
Something about that plan didn’t seem quite so brilliant
So I changed it to be like those children
Then it seemed like the right thing to do
Now I don’t even remember what I changed it to
Just that even then I thought that it was lame
20 years later and it’s not what I became
I wish I woulda let em thought I was a weirdo
Cause I still wanna be a hero and it goes like this
I’m gonna do what I want
I will never put anything but the truth in a song
I chose the route that my future is on and I don’t care if I’m doing it wrong
You can do what you want
And eventually get to where you truly belong
Where the ugly duck grew into a beautiful swan
And who cares if you’re doing it wrong
A grown man with a dream to chase
And a chip on the shoulder you can see from space
Every day they keep raising the stakes, there’s no more playing it safe
I spent a lifetime trying to be a regular guy
When there’s already an endless supply
If you ever put your head to the sky, and dreamt you could fly
Then you know you’re expected to set it aside and forget it
Cause it will never lead you on a safe path
But I really did quit my job to make rap
And I’m terrified
But not as much as I woulda been
Sitting in the same place wondering what coulda been
If this works, it’s because I’m good at it
I’m good at it cause I put in the work
And I’ve got no regrets no matter the outcome
Loving it’s just one of the perks and it goes like this
I’m gonna do what I want
I will never put anything but the truth in a song
I chose the route that my future is on and I don’t care if I’m doing it wrong
You can do what you want
And eventually get to where you truly belong
Where the ugly duck grew into a beautiful swan
And who cares if you’re doing it wrong
Do what you love, do it cause you love it
Do it cause if you don’t then you feel it in your stomach
Do it cause if you don’t then you feel like you’re being punished
Even if you never see a cent from it
Do it for the feeling of doing it like nobody’s ever done it
Singing it from the mountains and yodelling from the summit
Shout about it louder than blowing on every (inaudible)
With the speakers up over 11 hundered and it goes like this
I’m gonna do what I want
I will never put anything but the truth in a song
I chose the route that my future is on and I don’t care if I’m doing it wrong
You can do what you want
And eventually get to where you truly belong
Where the ugly duck grew into a beautiful swan
And who cares if you’re doing it wrong
Who cares if you’re doing it wrong
Do what you want, do it cause you love it
Who cares if you’re doing it wrong
Do it cause if you don’t then you feel it in your stomach
Who cares if you’re doing it wrong
Singing it from the mountains and yodelling from the summit
Who cares if you’re doing it wrong
