  • It seems like you're doing better these days
    Even though things are falling apart
    I know it's brutal working minimum wage
    It's like you're finished before you start
    Things got ugly for a while back there
    I know I thought that you wouldn't pull through
    Late at night when the phone would ring
    There's no telling what you would do

    Sometimes we'd yell and act mad as hell
    Sometimes we'd act like we didn't care
    Some of our love was just suffocating
    It left you turning blue and gasping for air

    C'mon kid, c'mon, it's one foot and then the other
    Everybody needs a hand sometimes, everybody needs a brother
    Well c'mon kid, c'mon, I'm reaching out to you
    Get out of bed kid, face the world, and show us what you can do

    I'm sorry I was always casting stones
    Like my glass house couldn't be smashed
    I spent as many nights as wild as a lion
    I was lucky that I never crashed
    Look, I've never really been no angel
    I see a lot of myself in you
    This little town can feel a lot like prison and angry young men
    Angry young men always have something to prove
    Always have something to prove

    C'mon kid, c'mon, it's one foot and then the other
    Everybody needs a hand sometimes, everybody needs a brother
    Well c'mon kid, c'mon, I'm reaching out to you
    Get out of bed kid, face the world, and show us what you can do

    I know you ended up with bills to pay
    I know she promised you that she would stay
    I know they told you he died for your sins and he's the only way

    I know it caught you by surprise
    I got a call that you almost died
    Second chances are a crime to waste
    So don't let time decide
    Don't let time decide
    Hey

    C'mon kid, c'mon, it's one foot and then the other
    Everybody needs a hand sometimes, everybody needs a brother
    C'mon kid, c'mon, I'm reaching out to you
    Get out of bed kid, face the world... show us what you can do

    C'mon kid, c'mon
    C'mon kid, c'mon
    C'mon kid, c'mon
    C'mon kid, c'mon
    And show us what you can do Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
