14. Let Us Love

The Outsiders
by NEEDTOBREATHE



 

We were born to embrace, not accept it
We were given nothing more, and so we kept it
As the colors of our boots keep fading
We live a life that we hate without saying

Who would listen to the cries of a poor man
Weíve never done nothing
How could we be something
Every heart has an hour of existence
Every breath brings a chance for redemption
If somehow we could wake up

Let us love
Like we were children
Make us feel
Like weíre still living
In a world I know thatís burning to the ground
Give us time
To beat the system
Make us find
What weíve been missing
In a world I know thatís burning to the ground

In the crowd of the dead and disappointed
Weíre ashamed, giving up on what we wanted
Take a chance on a long shot this time
Arenít we all just at least worth another try

Iím a king in a land of abuses
Undermined by the promise of excuses
Whoís to win if we know that itís not fair
Whoís to fight when it seems that no one cares
If somehow we could wake up

Let us love
Like we were children
Make us feel
Like weíre still living
In a world I know thatís burning to the ground
Give us time
To beat the system
Make us find
What weíve been missing
In a world I know thatís burning to the ground

Itís hard to stay here, but where do we go
I know we canít feel it anymore
Itís true that time is wearing us down
We fall further and further away
Waiting for always to change

Let us love
Like we were children
Make us feel
Like weíre still living
In a world I know thatís burning to the ground

Leave your hurting on the road behind you
Let the wind go with you Ďtil the morning comes
Yeah your sorrow, it canít save you
It wonít answer for what youíve done
