lyrics

Sometimes I make a little money
Enough so I can eat
Sometimes I make a little more
To afford this space and heat
I try not to forget about the days
When I couldn't breath
The most terrifying thing I've ever seen
Was all my life laid out in front of me

Who's to say in the dark
We're not walking on streets of gold
Who's to say that these hearts
Aren't the best in this whole world
Outcast by a love that's bigger than
Our flesh and blood

If you lose faith in humanity
Cast yourself out and see what pulls you back
I found so many sisters and brothers that
I didn't know I had
Surround yourself with what you fear
You'll see it's not half bad
It too the darkest of nights
To look inside and find a light

Who's to say in the dark
We're not walking on streets of gold
Who's to say that these hearts
Aren't the best in this whole world
Outcast by a love that's bigger than
Our flesh and blood
