HOW MUCH YOU GROW

BY NIKKI FORBES

Verse 1

What does success really mean

Ask the corporate machine

And they’ll tell you

(If you) Sit at your desk 9 to 5

Pay the bills pay the price

They’ll pay you

 

Pre-Chorus

But what…. If

We changed the narrative

But what….If

There’s more of life to live

 

Chorus

Who gets to decide

What really matters

What if what really counts

Can’t be measured

Like facing your fears of making new friends

Like proving the voice wrong that stuck in your head

Or touching the life of someone you didn’t know

What if it’s about how much you grow

 

Verse 2

What does success really mean

Speaking culturally

They’ll sell you

Shiny American Dreams

Always just out of reach

Then blame you

 

Pre-Chorus

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

The milestones we’ll remember

At the end of our life

Won’t be the paychecks

But moments in time

 

Chorus
