Don't become discouraged
This is not the end
You can find the courage
To begin again
And if you fail to notice
That all you'll ever be
You already are
You can count on me

To remind you that you were always good enough
And I'll be right beside when it all becomes too much

Don't become distracted
By the static and the calm
Between the trenches and the triumph
Of your greatest storm
And if you do not know this
Could be the start of a new form
One day, if you're honest
You'll see it was there all along

And you'll remember
That the person we all saw
And we never gave up on
Was always right there all along

So don't ask if it's worth it
It's all you have to do
Just don't stop
And remember
We still believe in you
Don't become discouraged
It is not your fault
That what you love and what loves you back
Is not always how you want

So the next time
It all keeps adding up
And you can't take the pressure
And your best ain't good enough
Don't be discouraged
