[Verse 1]

Well, what were the odds?

I never wished to be something I'm not

Seems I forgot

The closed door isn't always locked


[Pre-Chorus]

And all my life, waiting for a little spark

All my time, circling around the dark

It's a pretty good place to start


[Chorus]

Come to find I'm the one that will decide my life

It just takes a little time

It's a bottle rocket

It's a bottle rocket


[Verse 2]

Turn back to the shelf

Reading every letter I wish I wrote myself

So get in the car

All this talk, it only gеts you so far


[Pre-Chorus]

And all my life, waiting for a little spark

I decidе, circling around the dark

It's a pretty good place to start

[Chorus]

Come to find I'm the one that will decide my life

It just takes a little time

It's a bottle rocket

It's a bottle rocket


[Bridge]

Stop yourself from starting this over

Stop yourself from starting

Stop yourself from starting this over

Only stop yourself


[Chorus]

Come to find I'm the one that will decide my life

It just takes a little time

It's a bottle rocket

It's a bottle rocket

It's a bottle rocket

It's a bottle rocket
