When we were us

We were young, unafraid
We were finding our own way
Ther’s no wind, ther’s no rain
In the eye of the hurricane

Every time you climb that mountain
There’s another one left to climb
Don’t go looking for tomorrow
Leaving yesterday behind

Writing every page together
Those days were not to last forever
Diamonds in the rough
When we were us
Burn the house and torch the skyline
There was more than fire in our eyes
Love meant more than lust
When we were us

We were one, born and raised
More than blood runs through these veins
Cuts can heal, scars will fade
What we had will never change
Seasons pass and time will move on
You don’t ever have to let it go
You can go only so far now
Till your on your way back home

Writing every page together
Those days were not to last forever
Diamonds in the rough
When we were us
Burn the house and torch the skyline
There was more than fire in our eyes
Love meant more than lust
When we were us

Memories are nothing more than
Ghosts that we let in
Don’t be afraid of them
Do you remember when

Writing every page together
Those days were not to last forever
Diamonds in the rough
When we were us
Burn the house and torch the skyline
There was more than fire in our eyes
Love meant more than lust
When we were us oh-oh-oh
When we were us oh-oh-oh

Walls

My mama told me when I was younger
You better speak up, don’t be a number
My daddy told me when it was thunder
Go be the lighting, don’t run for cover

Who’s gonna help the helpless
Sometimes we’re all alone
These days we’re all just looking
For a place that we call home

Now we can’t climb over and you can’t go round
Build them up, we’ll tear them down
Brick by brick gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges and tear down walls

These walls are the mountains that we climb
These walls are the great divide
Brick by brick gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges, tear down walls

The space between us is getting wider
We need this bar to light the fire
Show me the promise, give me some dealing
There’s too much hurting, we need some healing

Who’s gonna help the helpless
Sometimes we’re all alone
These days we’re one step closer
To that place that we call home

Now we can’t climb over and you can’t go round
Build them up, we’ll tear them down
Brick by brick gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges and tear down walls

These walls are the mountains that we climb
These walls are the great divide
Brick by brick gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges, tear down walls (These walls)

I remember when the world was smaller
And we both felt ten feet taller

Now we can’t climb over and you can’t go round
Build them up, we’ll tear them down
Brick by brick gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges and tear down walls

These walls are the mountains that we climb
These walls are the great divide
Brick by brick gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges, tear down walls (These walls)

(These walls)
(These walls)
(These walls)
Tear down walls (These walls)

(These walls)
(These walls)
(These walls)
Tear down walls
