  • Has life hit you so hard that you've been knocked down?
    Have you gone too far to find the middle ground?
    Did they raise you so high just to pull you back down?
    Have you been so lost you could never be found?

    'Cause I've been real, I've been fake
    Been a sinner, been a saint
    I've been right, I've been so, so wrong
    Yeah, I've made my mistakes

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    You don't know what it's like to be me
    What if we're all the same in different kinds of ways?
    Can you, can you relate?
    We both know what it's like to be hurt
    We both know what it's like to feel pain
    But I think it's safe to say we're on to better days
    Can you, can you relate?

    Can you relate?

    Have you ever been left when you should've been loved?
    Has there ever been a time when you stayed but you should've run?

    'Cause I've been real, I've been fake
    Been a sinner, been a saint
    I've been right, I've been so, so wrong
    Yeah, I've made my mistakes

    Now, I don't know what it's like to be you
    You don't know what it's like to be me
    What if we're all the same in different kinds of ways?
    Can you, can you relate?
    We both know what it's like to be hurt
    We both know what it's like to feel pain
    But I think it's safe to say we're on to better days
    Can you, can you relate?

    Can you relate?
    Can you relate?
    Can you relate?

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    You don't know what it's like to be me
    But by the grace of God we'll see each other's heart
    Can you, can you relate? Writer/s: Joel David Smallbone, Joshua Kerr, Luke Smallbone, Taylor Monet Parks
