Needtobreathe Let Us Love Lyrics

Last updated: 09/10/2011 12:00:00 PM

We were born to embrace not accept it,
We were given nothing more until we kept it,
As the color of our boots keep fading,
Live a life that we hate without saying,
Who would listen to the cries of a poor man,
Never done nothing how can we be something,
Every heart has an hour of existance,
Every breath brings a chance for redemption,
If somehow we could wake up.

Let us love, like we were children,
Make us feel, like we're still living,
In a world I know is burning to the ground.
It is time to beat the system,
Live this life like we can't miss it,
In a world I know is burning to the ground.

In the crowd of the dead and dissapointed,
We're ashamed giving up on what we wanted,
Take a chance on a long shot this time,
Aren't we all just at least worth another try,
I'm a king in the land of abuses,
Under my law the promise of excuses,
Whose to win if we know that it's not fair,
Who would fight when it seems that no one cares,
If somehow we could wake up!


It's hard to stay here but where do we go?
I know I can't feel it anymore,
It's true, time is wearing us down,
Before mother and brother will wait,
Waiting for our ways to change.


We are hurtin' on the road behind you,
Let the wind go with you 'till the morning come,
Yeah your sorrow, no it can't save you,
It won't answer, for what you've done.
