  • Picking up the pieces in the world I know
    With one in the fire and one in the snow
    It's a comeback story of a lifetime
    A comeback story of a lifetime

    Bent on believing everything is alright
    I break with the day and I've been with the night
    It's a comeback story of a lifetime
    A comeback story of a lifetime

    I walk a mile in your shoes
    And now I'm a mile away
    And I've got your shoes/

    The brighter the lights they're burning me out
    Everyone says it's a lovely sound
    I don't know where they are leaving me
    Trying my best, hoping that you'll see

    I walk a mile in your shoes
    And now I'm a mile away
    And I've got your

    I walk a mile in your shoes
    Now I'm a mile away
    And I've got your shoes/

    You'll rue the day when you understand
    I did my best to be an honest man
    Race isn't over to the finish line
    It's a comeback story of a lifetime

    I walk a mile in your shoes
    And now I'm a mile away
    And I've got your shoes

    Now I'm a mile away
    And I've got your shoes
    Now I'm a mile away Writer/s: CALEB FOLLOWILL, JARED FOLLOWILL, MATTHEW FOLLOWILL, NATHAN FOLLOWILL
