lyrics

I waited for a snowy day in February, two weeks late
To show my face, I guess I only fire at my own will
And then I grew up like most children do
Make Daddy proud, and Momma too
But all those perfect marks in school meant little when, one day I flew
And I learned expectations are infections we fall victim to
And I learned not to be afraid of what our bodies do when I found you

I woke up this morning ready to fight
But these voices won’t stop—and the loudest, my own
So I point my five fingers into the unknown
Won’t surrender my smile, won’t concede to the foe
But I’m praying for someone to yell through the dawn:
“Everybody is free, you are free from your bonds
Come out, come out prisoners, wherever you are
Come out, come out children, wherever you are”

And I learned there are certain cuts that you can’t stick a bandage to
Accept defeat, yeah let it bleed, and take a shot of modesty
And I learned that the world will never stop taking from me
So I’ll keep a little for myself and call it even
