A Little Throwback to “My Time” with Ravyn Red

We love Ravyn Red and their inspiring song “My Time” and decided to put their video up again in case you missed them at our Songs to Recovery show last March!

Here are the song lyrics* so you can sing along:

“My Time”

Inspired by the stars as I watch them from afar
I want to be where they are
I know it’s going to be hard

And I know what I see
They might be…
They might be better than me

(Chorus)
But put up walls and I will climb
Give me odds and I’ll defy
I’m on a roll
It’s my time to shine
And I will fight
I will shine

You can tell me anything
Bring me down, but I’ll push further
Try to blind me but I see past the lies
I’ll need more convincing

And I know what I see
They’re not much…
They’re not much different from me

(Chorus)
So put up walls and I will climb
Give me odds and I’ll defy
I’m on a roll
It’s my time to shine
And I will fight
I will shine

Funny how things change so quick
Bet you never saw this coming
In the driver’s seat this time, moving fast

I put my time, blood, sweat, and tears
Everything is on the line now
Go ahead and close the door
I’ll fly through the window

I’ve worked so hard, sacrificed
Just to see my dreams come to life
If you think they are impossible
Then be ready to witness a miracle

(Chorus)
So put up walls and I will climb
Give me odds and I’ll defy
I’m on a roll
It’s my time to shine
And I will fight
I will shine

*Lyrics and music by Ravyn Red
