It took his breath away
Holding the bank page
He got the letter they're gonna take their house away
I'm bout to have a daughter
He yells it in the air
Feeling the weight of a world that just don't care

He lit a cigarette
Felt in on his lip
Driving home on a long road with regret
He pulls the window down shouts it out loud
Pushing the pedal and praying Lord help us now
He's looking for a reason
Watching the sun coming down

Can you hear when we call
There where we fall
Standing our backs against the wall
Top of our lungs
Where pain and love bleed into one
Baby when all you see is darkness
Coming down now
We all need forgiveness
Coming down now

It was Monday night
Under the street lights
She's turning seventeen in seven nights
Out on the fairgrounds walking in monotone
She kicks a bottle as empty as her soul

On the road alone in a house that's half a home
They give her pills just to kill when she feels alone
She's looking for a reason
Watching the sun coming down


Take these broken streets
Take these broken dreams
Hold my hand like we were walking free
Tell me it will change
I see it in your face
The hope the fear the love the faith

I'm working late again
Slaving to make the rent
I'm slanging coffee with dreams heavy as cement
They're coming one by one the face of falling love
I write a song with a prayer as I slide the cup

Chorus (X2)
