Bully

Album: Catching A Tiger (2010)
Play Video
  • Run ragged and wrecked
    Catching a tiger
    Baiting a bully
    Was this my idea?
    Is it a mistake?
    Why did you take me here?

    Am I too far from home?
    Am I really all alone?

    Walk, child, don't run
    Go off and have fun
    We'll be waiting
    Just look before you cross
    Take love with the loss
    I know it's frustrating

    But mama's here and your papa too
    And we are so darn proud of you
    Mama's here and your papa too
    And we are so darn proud of you
    Proud of you, proud of you

    Reach, but don't push it away
    Say nice words and play
    With intention
    Practice restraint, yeah
    Find out what matters

    I know your heart's been broken
    But martyrs never open doors
    The world is yours
    Carry this torch
    And use your voice

    Who am I, who am I?

    Was this my idea?
    Is it a mistake?
    Why did you take me here, here?

    Mama's here and your papa too
    And we are so darn proud of you
    Mama's here and your papa too
    And we are so darn proud of you

    And all of us who turned into you
    We're sure hoping that you pull on through
    All of us, into you
    We only hope that you pull on through
    You pull on through, you pull on through, you pull on through

    Your mama's, your papa's here Writer/s: ELISABETH MAURUS, TYLER RAMSEY, WILLIAM AUBREY REYNOLDS
