If I had a dime
For every time  
somebody told me “you’re too hard on yourself”
Well -- you know how it goes, I’d be rolling in dough.
But you know what?
I gotta be hard
‘cause I’m a sneaky bugger
Give me the choice, I’ll take the lazy way out
If I’m easy on myself, shit’ll never get done.
If I had a dime
For every time
somebody told me, “You’re doing too much”
Well -- you know the story – I’d be living in luxury.
But you know what?
I gotta do it all
‘cause I’m a fiery zealot
Diving in deep keeps my spirit from shrinking --
If I don’t do it all, I’ll probably do nothing.
If I had a dime
For every time  
Someone told me “You’re gonna hurt yourself”
Well -- you know what they say – I’d be living on easy street
And you know what?
They’re probably right.
But I’m a stubborn stoic
Bruises that teach are always worth enduring
If I don’t cross the line, I’ll never know where it was.
I’ll never know what I can do.
But I sure wouldn’t mind
Having those dimes…

Inspired by - a hip hop track?! There's something I never thought I'd say.
