Lyrics

It took me forever to learn
How to ride a bike
After years of tryin’
I finally got it right

After that you couldn’t get me
Off that bike
I rode it all over town
Every day and night

Now I’m sittin’ on this lift
Up in Lake Tahoe
Finally learning to ski at
Forty-five years old

I see those kids zoomin’ down those hills
With their low gravity and taste for thrills
I wonder how they do it, and why can’t I?
But even when I was their age, I didn’t fly...

‘Cause I’ve never been Fearless
But I’ve never been Hopeless
And I’m givin’ it My best
And I’m making it work

Since that time when I was a kid
And broke through my fear
I learned never to give up
On dreams that I hold dear

Yeah, I may never be the type
To rush forth undaunted
But patient persistence always
Got me what I wanted

I see those kids zoomin’ down those hills
Flyin’ over jumps and chasin’ thrills
I wonder how they do it, and why can’t I?
But even when I was their age, I didn’t fly...

‘Cause I’ve never been Fearless
But I’ve never been Hopeless
And I’m givin’ it My best
And I’m making it work

I’m just a Late Bloomer
But I’ve got an Explorer’s Heart
I get there eventually after
A long, slow start

I see those kids zoomin’ down those hills
Flyin’ over jumps and chasin’ thrills
I wonder how they do it, and why can’t I?
But even when I was their age, I didn’t fly...

‘Cause I’ve never been fearless
But I’ve never been hopeless
And I’m givin’ it my best
And eventually it works
