An Ordinary Son

  • Hold my head up high
    Now I see you, drying off your eyes
    Four seasons, temper all my pain
    And I have been sheltered, I accept the blame
    For the tumbling dice
    I put my ego aside
    With fire and anger
    I've shadowboxed you all my life
    Bring it on yourself, bring it on me
    Wrapped up in a box cause there's nothing left for free
    Gonna dig a hole, gonna fall in the dirt
    Gonna redeem myself and rise upon the earth
    And I feel, like the time has come
    All ever wanted, was to be an ordinary son
    Know the wounds run deep
    But I take solace, knowing that hill is not so steep
    Pale white cigarette, barn full of hay
    But I knew I shouldn't have been down there anyway
    Gone is the shadow that was cast over
    And I just wanna live in tranquility
    And I believe that we will
    All the courageous
    And all the forgiveness
    Walk with me
    Walk with me
    So thank you for tending our survival
    'Cause I know I took that bread from our table Writer/s: JOE BONAMASSA, GLENN HUGHES, KEVIN SHIRLEY
