  • I used to hear the voices through the thin walls
    Tension building up and I'd feel so small
    Some nights I'd hide under the pillows 'cause I didn't know what else to do
    Started singing just to get some attention
    A melody to cut through the addiction
    And every song I made turned into wishes
    Some of them came true

    Everyone rises, everyone falls
    Everyone spends some nights alone
    Rich or for poor
    I'm always yours
    You never left me on my own

    Tell me who, who would I be without you?
    No matter how much we lose
    Every time I bet my life on you

    We were never rich not even thousands
    Mom was on her knees cleaning houses
    I used to go to work with her some days
    And dream and dance in the big hallways

    Everyone's scared, everyone's scarred
    Everyone spends some nights alone
    But every high, every low
    You never left me on my own

    Tell me who, who would I be without you?
    No matter how much we lose
    Every time I bet my life on you

    Tell me who, would I be without you?
    Nothing I'd rather do
    Every night I bet my life on you
    Who would I be without you?

    Went on the road to make my daddy proud
    But I lost him and so I sang to the crowd
    My only hope is that he's looking down thinking
    "Oh my God, my daughter's doing it now"

    Tell me who, who would I be without you?
    No matter how much we lose
    Every time I bet my life on you

    Tell me who, would I be without you?
    Nothing I'd rather do
    Every night I bet my life on you
    Who would I be without you? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
