  • I heard the whispers
    I heard their sighs and moans
    I wanted to upset some assholes
    Show them that I don't belong

    You can't pick a side 'til the lines are drawn
    You can't erase everything you've known
    Don't be afraid to ask someone
    'Cause this is how it starts

    We all get it wrong sometimes
    Doesn't mean we shouldn't try, try, try
    I think it's time to realize
    We wanna get it right next time
    You take all the lessons you learn
    And all the bridges you've burned
    We can be, and be better now
    We can be, and be better now

    I kiss the concrete
    Laying face down in the road
    Tryna be at one with the asphalt
    Hoping that it swallows me whole

    Please pick a side or you don't belong
    The enemy's only a friend done wrong
    You don't have to play but somebody's gotta win

    We all get it wrong sometimes
    Doesn't mean we shouldn't try, try, try
    I think it's time to realize
    We wanna get it right next time
    You take all the lessons you learn
    And all the bridges you've burned
    We can be, and be better now
    We can be, and be better now

    We all get it wrong sometimes
    Doesn't mean we shouldn't try, try, try
    I think it's time to realize
    We wanna get it right next time
    You take all the lessons you learn
    And all the bridges you've burned
    We can be, and be better now
    We can be, and be better now Writer/s: Simon Neil
